RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- It's March y'all and you know what that means, yeah start of spring, and college basketball post-season tournament time!
The women's bracket was set on Selection Sunday, shortly after the men's bracket was set. In North Carolina, three ACC teams made the tournament and a total of eight which is the most of any conference this year, the ACC said.
Duke enters the tournament as a 3-seed and will host 14-seed Iona in the first round. The Blue Devils are making their first appearance since 2018 and their 25th appearance overall.
Saturday, March 18 at Cameron Indoor Stadium.
The 6-seed Tar Heels are making a road trip for their first-round game. They'll play the winner of No. 11 seeds Purdue and St. John's. This is North Carolina's 30th trip to the NCAA Tournament, which ties for the sixth-most appearances among all teams, according to the ACC.
Saturday, March 18 in Columbus, Ohio.
The 7-seed Wolfpack will square up with 10-seed Princeton and will be playing more than 2,000 miles from home court.
Friday, March 17 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
For the second year in a row, 68 teams will be taking part in the tournament -- adopting the format the men's competition has used since 2011. Since the addition of the women's tournament in 1982, it has become an important part of the sporting calendar and already has a rich history of iconic moments.
