Stanford is the top seed in the Spokane regional of the NCAA women's tournament.

The Cardinal are the first of the No. 1 seeds to be announced Monday night.

Stanford is ranked No. 4 in the AP Top 25, and could be joined by the teams in the three top spots: Baylor, Notre Dame and UConn.

If that happens, it would be the second straight season those four schools were the top seeds.

The Cardinal will try and reach the Final Four for a sixth straight season and end Hall of Fame coach Tara VanDerveer's 21-year drought without a national championship.

Stanford may already have the most impressive win this season, ending Baylor's 42-game winning streak in November. That's the only loss the defending champion Lady Bears suffered this season.
