The defending national champion USC women will once against host their first two games of the NCAA Tournament as a #2 seed. Coach Dawn Staley is happy with that. But the committee put the Gamecocks in the Albany, NY Region meaning another long road trip should they advance to the Sweet 16. Staley is not happy about that.
Oh, and to make the Final Four, they’ll likely have to go thru national top seed UConn.
The Gamecocks will open up against North Carolina A&T Friday night around 7:30 PM. The other pairing in Columbia will pit Staley’s alma mater Virginia against Cal.
