So who is going to the Big Dance?

Well, unofficially based on today’s regional results and thanks to the great programming work of former Duke runner Bo Waggonerwe are fairly confident the following 31 women’s teams will be competing in Terre Haute in two weeks. Update 11/16/13: The NCAA list is out and identical to our list below.

BYU snuck in as the last team to advance while Arizona State was left at home as unlucky team #32. In a cruel twist of fate, the Arizona State men’s team also was team #32.

25th-ranked Boise State was the highest ranked team not to make the Big Dance, although it’s worth noting that #28 Duke, which in the pre-season was ranked #4, was left as home as well.

Note. We spoke to a college coach before putting this up and he had a slightly different result. There is a chance that Indiana and Wisconsin don’t get at all and if they don’t go then Arizona State and Boston College both go in their place. It depends on who gets in at #25 and #26 – Indiana, BYU or Penn State. Waggoner has Indiana getting in on a common opponents’ tie-breaker with Penn State (Indiana beat BYU so they can’t get in) and pushing Wisconsin in. If Penn State actually goes here, then Wisco and Indiana never eventually get in.

In the three previous years of running the program, Bo says he’s never had to rely on the common opponents rule and the NCAA rule-book is vague on that front.
