I'm no expert in women's basketball, but it seems to me that Nikki Caldwell and Co. deserved better than an 8 seed.

They were ranked #23 in the country and won 10 straight before getting beaten badly by Stanford in the Pac 10 conference final. That game apparently meant more to the committee than the 10 straight wins. If UCLA gets through the first round, they'll be forced to play once-beaten Nebraska.

I figured they'd be a six seed and would have been happy with it.

I look forward to the comments from the Bruins Nation experts that are sure to follow.
