The First Ever Schmolik WOMEN'S 64!

Hello, women's college basketball fans!

I've been doing the Schmolik 64 for a while now and always wanted to do a Schmolik 64 for the women's tournament (by the way, a true 64). Well, I've finally done it. Now I really don't know much about college basketball outside of Connecticut and only found RPI ratings from the NCAA website and the AP and USA Today ratings. Someone want to do a Paymon score on this bracket? Or better yet, how many teams I get correctly?

A few differences I found for the women's tournament. The sites are named after the cities, not the regions.There are 16 1st/2nd round sites so rather than two pods in each site, there are just one. If a school hosts a site, not only is the host school allowed to be there, I think there's an unwritten rule that they have to be there. I also think there are less strict rules on teams from the same conference being placed in the same regional and so on but I tried for the most part to split around the teams in the same conference in the bracket.

Here goes nothing:

Sat/Mon March 20-22
Sun/Tue March 21-23
