Technically, when it comes to seeding, there’s not much madness left.
For years, the argument against women’s basketball has been that when it came to the postseason, the bracket was too predictable. And if one were to just glance at the 2022 Final Four, they’d probably think that argument holds up.

Since November, there’s been about half a dozen teams in the national championship conversation — and as it turns out, all of the teams in Minneapolis were part of that talk.
