Next, we’ll see who is here in the women’s championship division!
Pool A has 2015 Round of 16 participants University of California-Santa Barbara and Illinois. Florida State looks to challenge their dreams of returning to national championship bracket play.
Pool B contains 2015 National Champion Michigan State. If they wish to defend their title they must go through 2015 Consolation Semifinalist Colorado School of Mines and 2015 Quarterfinalist Delaware.
Pool C features two 2015 Round of 16 participants North Carolina and Kansas. Consolation Quarterfinalist Arizona rounds out this pool.
Pool D will have 2015 Round of 16 participant Penn State joined by 2 strong challengers in Virginia and Gonzaga.
Pool E will also feature two 2015 Round of 16 participants Texas A&M and Ohio State along with 2015 Quarterfinalist Florida. Tough pool?
Pool F has 2015 Championship Quarterfinalist Miami (OH), 2015 Open Semifinalist Connecticut and University of California-San Diego.
Pool G contains 2015 Finalist Colorado State and 2 solid competitors in Syracuse and Wisconsin.
Finally, Pool H features 2015 Championship Consolation Finalist Texas, Championship Consolation Winner Colorado “Gold” and Quarterfinalist Cal Poly. Another tough pool?
So…will we have…Michigan State win another national title? Will Colorado State use last year’s extra time loss as a stepping stone to get to the top this year? Will another team win the title?
I want to know.
Let’s find out beginning Thursday!
