The Women’s NCAA Basketball Tournament is set and your Fighting Tigers of LSU are dancing for the first time since 2018.

LSU earned the No. 3 seed in the Spokane Region and their reward for being one of the Top-16 overall seeds is getting to host potentially two games inside the PMAC. LSU will host Jackson State on Saturday at a time to be determined.

Not only is it the first time LSU’s back in the NCAA Tournament after four season, but the 3-seed is the highest bid LSU’s had since being a No. 2 for the 2008 Tournament which saw LSU make the Final Four.

Should LSU advance to the Round of 32 they’ll play one of three teams: Ohio State, the Spokane Region’s 6 seed, or the winner of Missouri State vs. Florida State who will play each other in a play-in game.

The other host sites in the Spokane Region are Stanford, the No. 1 seed and defending national champions, Texas, the No. 2, and Maryland, the No. 4 seed. If LSU were to advance to Spokane, the Sweet 16 games would be held on March 25-26 and Elite 8 games would be the 27-28.

The Spokane Region is as follows:

  • No. 1 Stanford vs. No. 16 Montana State
  • No. 8 Kansas vs. No. 9 Georgia Tech
  • No. 5 Virginia Tech vs. No. 12 Florida Gulf Coast
  • No. 4 Maryland vs. No. 13 Delaware
  • No. 6 Ohio State. vs No. 11 Missouri State/Florida State
  • No. 3 LSU vs. No. 14 Jackson State
  • No. 7 Utah vs. No. 10 Arkansas
  • No. 2 Texas vs. No. 15 Fairfield
