The NCAA women’s basketball tournament is officially underway and March Madness is on full display. The tournament tipped on Sunday, March 21st and runs two weeks until a national champion is decided on Sunday, April 4th. The entire event was relocated to San Antonio this year, and the regions are named around the city.

The four top seeds in this year’s tournament are Stanford, South Carolina, NC State and UConn. Baylor is the defending national champion and is a 2 seed in UConn’s side of the bracket. Stanford and UConn are the heavy favorites at DraftKings Sportsbook.

We’ll be tracking the full women’s tournament, moving through the bracket as teams advance. We’ll have upsets along the way while some of the chalk is likely to dominate. We’ll update this article over the two weeks of the tournament until a national champion is crowned.
