Wednesday's Women's Bracketology update


Some updates after Wednesday's conference tournament games:

NOTABLE

• Texas lost to Texas Tech, but stays in the field as the last team in, maintaining a slightly better overall profile than other bubble teams.

• Which teams could bump the Longhorns? With runs in their respective conference tournaments, Southern California (Pac-12), Kansas (Big 12) or James Madison (Colonial) are the teams to watch.

• A Delaware loss in the CAA tournament, or a Green Bay loss in the Horizon tournament, would also knock out Texas because those leagues would gain an at-large bid to go with the automatic berth.

• For historical perspective, Texas' 2011 team, with a less impressive profile than this edition of the Longhorns, received a No. 9 seed.
