Princeton women, star Rasheed can get 1st NCAA tournament win without facing Baylor, Griner

Niveen Rasheed and Princeton can achieve their biggest goal without having to beat Brittney Griner and top-ranked Baylor.

The Tigers (22-6) will try Sunday for their school's first NCAA tournament win in their fourth straight season as Ivy League champions.

A win over Florida State (22-9) likely would mean a game against the defending champion Lady Bears. Baylor opens against Prairie View A&M as the top seed on its home court in the first round of the Oklahoma City Region.

The Seminoles are back after a seven-year NCAA run ended last season.

Prairie View (17-14) is a No. 16 seed and Southwestern Athletic Conference champion for the third straight year. It's the second time the Lady Panthers have had to play Baylor (32-1) in Waco.
