Princeton University Women’s Basketball Earns No. 8 Seed, Will Face Green Bay in Maryland
The Princeton University Women’s Basketball team, the only undefeated women’s basketball team in the nation, has earned a No. 8 seed in the Spokane Region of the NCAA Tournament and will play No. 9 seed University of Wisconsin-Green Bay at 11 a.m. on Saturday, March 21 in college Park, Maryland.
The Princeton University Department of Athletics reacted to the announcement with disappointment on Twitter. The school had anticipated being seeded higher and possibly hosting the first round of the tournament.
An eight seed? What? Tigers vs. Green Bay in Maryland. Is this fair?
