Texas A&M and Vanderbilt were the biggest climbers in this week's Associated Press Top 25 women's basketball poll, each jumping eight spots.
A&M is ranked 17th this week, I actually had them 14th.
ESPN's Charlie Creme updated his 64-team NCAA women's basketball bracket Monday and bumped the Aggies up a seed to No. 4. He has Cal coming to College Station as the No. 5 seed for the first- and second-round games along with Iona as a No. 12 seed playing Cal and Central Michigan as a No. 13 seed playing the Aggies.
Creme has A&M in the South Bend Regional, a tough draw since Notre Dame is projected to be a No. 1 seed at home and did nothing to hurt that by rolling to victory at Tennessee on Monday.
Creme also moved Vanderbilt up to a No. 4 seed. The SEC teams seeded higher by Creme are Tennessee at No. 2 and Kentucky as a No. 3. A&M plays Tennessee and Kentucky at Reed Arena, the Lady Vols this Sunday and Kentucky on Feb. 23, but A&M has to travel to Vanderbilt.
