A historic season for BYU Women’s Basketball continues Saturday as they open play in the NCAA Tournament. The no. 6 Cougars will be taking on the 11-seed Villanova Wildcats in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

BYU ended the season as the WCC regular season champs, with a 26-3 record. A 6-seed is the program’s highest ever (was previously a 7). The Cougars’ last game was played on Mar. 8 in Las Vegas for the WCC tournament title. They fell to Gonzaga, 71-59.

The Villanova Wildcats are 23-8 overall. They came in second place (to UConn) in the Big East Conference and also lost their conference tournament final, 70-40 in favor of UConn being the final score. That game was on Mar. 7.

BYU and Villanova have only met one other time, in 1995. It was a neutral site game that Villanova won.
