WOMEN'S NEWS ...Stanford, North Carolina, Florida State and UCLA are the four top seeds for the NCAA Division I Women's Tournament that kicks off Thursday.

Draw:NCAA Division I Women's Tournament

The four teams represent the ACC and Pacific-10, which lead all conferences with eight teams in the tournament. Seven teams will represent the Big East. Six teams enter the tournament from the SEC and the Big Ten will be represented by five teams. Action kicks off on Thursday when 20-0-0 Stanford hosts Northern Arizona, the Big Sky champion, and BYU plays UC Santa Barbara in Palo Alto. The rest of the tournament begins Friday.

* JUMPING FOR JOY:Teams happy to get at-large bids included:
-- Arizona State was 2-6-1 in the Pac-10 but got an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament;
-- Connecticut is back in the NCAA field following a one-year hiatus. The Huskies got in despite losing in the first round of the Big East Tournament;
-- Duke got in with an 8-8-4 record, the bare minimum record to be eligible for consideration;
-- Michigan State is the lowest ranked team (No. 56) in last week's RPI Index to get a bid.

* UNHAPPY CAMPERS: Teams disappointed not to get a shout-out on the ESPN News selection show included:
-- Colorado College is the highest ranked team (No. 32) in last week's RPI Index not to get a bid;
-- Missouri was the Big 12 regular-season champion;
-- Charlotte had a 14-game unbeaten streak snapped when it lost to Dayton in the Atlantic-10 final;
-- Minnesota finished tied for third in the Big Ten and 12-5-3 overall.

* ENYEART OUT. Portland suffered a major blow when senior All-American Michelle Enyeart was lost for the remainder of the 2009 season with a knee injury suffered five seconds before halftime of the Pilots' 2-0 win over San Diego in the regular-season finale on Friday night.
 
Enyeart concluded her career as the No. 4 all-time scorer in Portland history with 136 points (48 goals, 40 assists). She also joined Pilot legends Tiffeny Milbrett and Shannon MacMillanas the only UP players with at least 40 career goals and 40 career assists. With 13 goals and 12 assists this season, Enyeart was Portland's second leading scorer and helped the Pilots to their third consecutive undefeated WCC title.
