The University of South Florida women's basketball team is going to the NCAA tournament.

It's the second straight season and seventh in ten that USF has made the tournament.

Conference champion UCF picked up a seven seed in the tournament and will play 10 seed Florida (21-10) Saturday in the Bridgeport region.

Other state schools in the tournament include 11 seed Florida State (17-13)
who will play fellow 11 seed Missouri State (24-7) in a First Four game Wednesday in the Spokane region. The winner will play 6 seed Ohio State (23-6) Saturday.

12 seed Florida Gulf Coast (29-2) will play 5 seed Virginia Tech (23-9) Friday in the Spokane region.
