Possible Cinderella
Last season, in the subregional across the state of Washington in Seattle, Gonzaga felt like a host school and knocked off Texas A&M. That was a No. 7 seed beating a No. 2. This year, the Bulldogs are a No. 11 seed, and this time they really are at home in Spokane in the early rounds.

The West Coast Conference champions lost three games in November -- to Southern California, Stanford and Mississippi -- but only one since, to Notre Dame on Dec. 29. Gonzaga would need to upset No. 6 seed Iowa and then likely No. 3 UCLA to get to continue the tournament in the Bulldogs' hometown.

Senior Courtney Vandersloot has made her case as one of the nation's top offensive players -- she's averaging 18.6 points and has 327 assists to 98 turnovers -- and is also effective on the defensive end, with 96 steals.
