2002 Women's Basketball Season Review
For the third year in a row, six Pac-10 teams saw postseason action, however, just two were part of the 'Big Dance.' It marked the first time since 1995-96 that the Conference sent fewer than four teams to NCAA Tournament play. STANFORD advanced to the NCAA West Regional Semifinals, while ARIZONA STATE reached the NCAA Second Round, playing in the Midwest Region.
Four Pac-10 teams accepted invites to the Women's NIT, playing with a vengeance. WASHINGTON, USC, OREGON STATE and OREGON won their first-round games by an average of 16 points each. Making their third WNIT appearance and first since 1988-89, the Ducks reeled off five straight wins to capture the tournament championship.
