Women's Value Add Basketball - Seeding for New Teams Being Added

Last year we played out our Women's all-time great teams in the Value Add Basketball Game, with Tennessee 1998 defeating Louisiana Tech 1982 for the title. As Basketball Reference has added more women's stats, we have been able to identify and capture stats to start to create additional teams. Here is the current roster - and you can click here for the player cards but if it says "Cards to be made" then the cards are not there yet.

Keep in mind the 20 teams we thought were the best were created last year and played our all-time great tournament. These would be the 21st through 36th greatest teams but as we play we may realize some should be further up the list. When we say "greatest" keep in mind we only allow one team per school except for letting Baylor and UConn have two seasons, so certainly those schools and Tennessee would have more of the top 36 teams if we allowed all their great teams into the tournament. Here is the seeding for the next tournament, with the 2006 National Champs from Maryland as the No. 1 seed for a matchup with 16-seed and ACC rival Virginia from 2018.  The No. 2 seed is the National Champ Texas Tech from 1993, taking on our 15-seed in the Georgia Bulldogs from 2013.
