WVU, Marshall Women’s Basketball Teams Earn NCAA Tournament Bids



WVU Women's Basketball team celebrates

Selection Sunday saw two West Virginia based college basketball programs earn bids to the NCAA Tournament. Both the WVU women’s basketball and Marshall women’s basketball programs are going dancing.

For starters, Mark Kellogg’s Mountaineers are an 8-seed and will face 9-seed Princeton, who won the Ivy League championship. The matchup will take place in Iowa City and the winner will earn the pleasure of the top seed in the bracket Iowa and Caitlin Clark, assuming they avoid a first round upset.

Kellogg will have his team ready though. “I told them, win one and let’s send Caitlin Clark packing,” he said at the WVU watch party.

Kellogg led WVU to a 24-7 record (12-6, Big 12) in his first season in Morgantown.

The Thundering Herd, who won the Sun Belt title, received a 13-seed and will take on 4-seed Virginia Tech in a road game in Blacksburg.

After achieving success at Glenville State, Kim Caldwell led Marshall to a 26-6 (11-1, Sun Belt) season.
