 As is the case for the men’s team, the Auburn women are heading west for postseason play.

The other game at Stanford features the host school, a No. 2 seed, taking on No. 15 seed UCD.

Auburn is receiving its third NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament bid in the past four seasons, Coach Terri Williams-Flournoy’s Tigers are 22-9 overall.
