As the women’s NCAA Tournament bracket was revealed Sunday night, there was little uncertainty about who would be the field’s top seed. South Carolina, the SEC’s regular-season and conference tournament champion, is looking to become only the 10th team to complete an undefeated campaign with a national title.

Coach Dawn Staley has relied on her roster’s depth, with five players averaging double-figure scoring and nine averaging double-digit minutes. Senior center Kamilla Cardoso, the SEC Defensive Player of the Year and a first-team All-SEC selection, has been central to their success on both ends. Cardoso, however, will miss South Carolina’s first NCAA Tournament game after being ejected for fighting late in its SEC tournament championship victory.

The Gamecocks are looking to advance to their fourth consecutive Final Four, and a national title victory would be their second in three years.

This story will be updated as the bracket is revealed.
