Deja Vu spelled A-B-Q

By Weinman - Stop me if you've heard this before.

The Commodore women's basketball team will be the No. 4 seed heading to Albuquerque for the first and second rounds of the NCAA Tournament.

Sounds familiar, right? How 'bout this:

Should Vanderbilt advance past its first two opponents, the Dores would face Maryland, the region's top seed, in the Sweet 16.

That script played out last season, as the Commodores beat Montana and West Virginia at The Pit in New Mexico before falling to the Terps in Spokane, Wash.

A couple of edits have been made since 2008 -- VU's first opponent will be Western Carolina, with a victory pitting the Commodores against either Kansas State or Drexel, and the winner of the ABQ pod traveling to Raleigh, N.C., for a possible matchup with Maryland.

The Dores will head to New Mexico on Thursday and play their first game on Saturday, March 21, at 7 p.m. CT on ESPN2. Take a look at the full bracket and let us know what you think.
