SOMEWHERE ALONG I-64 (WDRB) -- This is what you do at 12:25 in the morning while driving home from Greensboro, N.C and the Atlantic Coast Conference women’s basketball tournament.

2. Xavier (27-4) – The Big East regular-season champs.

3. Villanova (27-4) – The Big East runner-ups with a solid March pedigree.

4. Duke (25-6) – Still the most talented team, despite the loss at Virginia Tech.

5. Michigan (28-7) – Hot, hot, hot.

6. Cincinnati (27-4) – Impressive win at Wichita State, Mick Cronin.

7. Michigan State (29-4) – The Spartans will be fine as long as they don’t have to play Michigan again.
