Underrated: George Washington. They've outscored opponents by an average of 12.3 points. They've won 20-of-23 games. And they have senior guards: Kimberly Beck (13.6 points, 6.3 assists) and Sarah Jo Lawrence (whose 3.85 GPA is more impressive than her 13.2 points). Add to that wins over tournament darling Texas A&M and Auburn (their first-round opponent). Traveling across the country -- the Colonials play at Stanford's Maples Pavilion -- won't be easy, but this is a veteran team with tournament success. Last year, George Washington advanced to the Sweet 16.

In an interview with SI a few weeks ago, Connecticut coach Geno Auriemma sang the praises of his well-balanced, no-star team. "I like the fact that they don't look at anyone other than themselves to try to do it for them," he said. "For the whole season, I think that is a great way to go.
