There's more to women's NCAA tournament than UConn

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

The victor faces the Cincinnati Bearcats in Sacramento on Friday.

Kansas State and Wake Forest will square off in the First Four to earn the right to face Cincinnati in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

Manning praised Kansas State's balanced offense - as the entire starting lineup averages 9.4 to 12.5 points per game - but its defense could be the biggest challenge for Wake Forest. The 49ers made the field each season of the NCAA tournament's first decade - 1982-92, including going to back-to-back Final Fours in 1987-88. That includes three combined losses to Duke and North Carolina by a total of 13 points. Wesley Iwundu, who we were concerned about from a matchup standpoint, scored a career-high 24 points, and also had 6 rebounds to go along with 6 assists.

Two other long-time, no-see-NCAA-tournament teams are Summit League champ Western Illinois, which made its only other appearance in 1995, and MAC champ Toledo, appearing for the first time since 2001. Kansas State is 5-1 all-time in the NCAA Tournament in Manhattan. Wade grew up playing as a guard, and head coach Bruce Weber will occasionally use him as a point forward if the situation calls for it. Johnson is limited offensively, but can run the floor and stick with guards on the perimeter.

The Deacs got knocked out of the ACC Tournament a little earlier than expected last week but they still enter the month of March on a bit of a hot streak. The victor of that game will play No. 1 Kansas. This could have been avoided if they had just beaten the Virginia Tech Hokies in the ACC Tournament. The Trojans are here because they beat UCLA once, and they also beat SMU before the Mustangs developed into a powerhouse - a win that keeps looking better and better. "I am just happy for our guys, they get an opportunity to play in the tournament and to be a part of it".

Danny Manning has done a tremendous job so far in Winston-Salem, engineering a turnaround from a 2-16 season a year ago. They have one win against a top-200 KenPom team, a 70-54 victory at Washington State.

The Demon Deacons fought back to pull within one of the lead with 4:32 left in the half, but K-State got six straight points to take their biggest lead of the half at 36-29.

I'm going to go with Wake Forest because of two players: John Collins and Bryant Crawford.

This is not a team that wants to get into a shootout. He took home All-ACC first-team honors as a result this season but is far from the only scoring threat on the team.
