Top 5 Women's College Basketball Teams in Championship History

History has proven that all the madness still exists in the women’s NCAA Tournament. Between undefeated seasons and consecutive championships, nothing has been impossible for these ladies.

So, in order to get you enthusiastic for the women’s championship, here is a look at the top five women’s teams to ever play in the NCAA Tournament.¬†

One could make a strong case that four of the top five players at the NCAA women’s basketball tournament are graduates of Texas high schools.
Baylor post Brittney Griner and Stanford forward Nnemkadi Ogwumike are arguably the best two players in the nation. Baylor guard Odyssey Sims has already made one All-America team, and Cardinal forward Chiney Ogwumike gives Stanford a sister act that has lost a total of one game.
Baylor coach Kim Mulkey said she’s “a bit partial” but believes no state is more competitive in girls basketball than Texas.
"We’re our own country here in Texas," said Mulkey.
"Our state is so geographically big, you’re going to have a lot of players who can play at this level," Mulkey said. "I am so impressed with how competitive the state tournaments are, and we have a Texas Coaches Association that the coaches are proud of. You don’t see that in a lot of states."
Former Longhorns coach Gail Goestenkors has long boasted that Texas produces the most talented high school players, and this year is no different. In a list of the nation’s top 100 high school seniors provided by ESPN HoopGurlz, Texas leads all states with 11, including six in the top 30.

After five seasons of disappointing results and failure to live up to high expectations, Texas women’s basketball coach Gail Goestenkors resigned Monday, saying she is “tired” and needs to step away from basketball.Texas hired Goestenkors away from Duke in 2007 with hopes she would revive one of the nation’s premiere programs. She never had a losing season and her teams made it to the NCAA tournament every year. But her teams lost in the first round the last four years and she didn’t win any Big 12 championships.
