The Kansas Lady Jayhawks were selected on Monday night to be part of the women’s NCAA tournament. The Jayhawks take on Colorado in a first round match-up on Saturday at 5:30 as part of the Norfolk Regional.

Colorado has a record of 25-6 overall, while the Jayhawks are 18-13 on the season. The two teams have a storied history of playing as the Buffaloes are formerly of the Big 12, before jumping to the Pac-12.

Other Big 12 teams in the women’s tournament include Oklahoma, Baylor, Iowa State, Texas Tech, Oklahoma State, and West Virginia. The Sooners are the sixth seed as part of the Oklahoma City region, and will face 11-seeded Central Michigan in the first round. Texas Tech is the seventh seed in the Spookane Region, and will face 10th-seeded South Florida in the first round. Fifth-seeded Iowa State is also part of the Spookane Region, as they face 12th-seeded Gonzaga in the first round. Seventh-seeded Oklahoma State takes on 10th-seeded DePaul as part of the Norfolk Region on Sunday, while 11th-seeded West Virginia faces sixth-seeded Delaware in the Bridgeport region on Sunday. Top-seeded and overall favorite Baylor takes on 16th-seeded Prairie View A&M.

The Buffaloes were on a 10-game winning streak before losing to Stanford in the Pac-12 conference tournament semifinals. Kansas is a surprise team in the tournament after stumbling down the stretch, including losing five of their final seven games, only two wins came against TCU.
