There will be a great deal of Canadian representation when women's March Madness gets underway on Sunday.
All four of the No. 1 seeds features a player from north of the 49th this season.
The top overall seed in the NCAA Tournament, Stanford, features Toronto forward Alyssa Jerome. Kingston, Ont.'s Aaliyah Edwards is averaging nearly 11 points a game for Connecticut. Toronto's Rebecca Demeke suits up for North Carolina State, while South Carolina features Mississauga, Ont.'s Latecia Amihere.
This will be the first March Madness in two years with last year's NCAA Tournament cancelled due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Final Four is scheduled for April 2 at San Antonio's Alamodome with the final to be played two days later on April 4 in the same venue.
