Download a printable NCAA Women's Tournament bracket

I'm not going to list all the teams in this year's NCAA Women's Tournament field here, but you can see them all on this printable bracket put together by the Inquirer.

Once you check it out, you'll see that Temple is a No. 8 seed in the Norfolk region and will play No. 9 James Madison in the first round, with the winner to play Connecticut. I'm sure Owls coach and former Huskies assistant Tonya Cardoza is overjoyed about that.

You'll also see that Ivy League champion Princeton, making its first ever NCAA Tournament appearance, is a 11-seed and will play No. 5 St. John's in Tallahassee, Fla.

Princeton's slot is the best ever seed earned by an Ivy League team.

There's also the small matter of Connecticut potentially meeting Tennessee in the Final Four, and Stanford or Nebraska in the championship game.

The rest you'll have to find out for yourself, if I haven't given away too much already.
