Take it easy on us on our first go here at what a NAIA Hoops Women’s Bracketology Report would look like. The main purpose of this is to have some fun with and bring some attention to the NAIA Women’s National Championships. The good news is we have had a lot of people volunteer to help shape this as we continue on with our future bracketology reports. We will go a little more in-depth with our updated report after the new rankings come out this week. For now, we wanted to focus on what a potential NAIA Women’s National Championship Bracket could look like. We tried to use the criteria that the committee uses as well as trying to adjust seeds to try and keep league teams from having to be in the same POD together. There are still teams playing themselves both in and out of the bracket and as we come down the final couple weeks of the season, there will be plenty of bid stealers who pull upsets in the Conference Tournaments as well!
