With no NCAA tournament played last season because of the coronavirus, Baylor is still the defending champion. Coach Kim Mulkey's team won the 2020-21 Big 12 regular season and conference tournaments and enters the tournament as a two-seed.

The Bears lead five Big 12 teams selected to the field. Texas A&M, out of the Southeastern Conference, also qualified as a two-seed.

The NCAA women's basketball tournament will take place entirely in San Antonio in an effort to limit travel due to the pandemic.

The Aggies won the SEC regular season conference title and play Troy Monday night in the Mercado Region. Baylor is the second seed in the River Walk Region and plays Jackson State Sunday afternoon.
