RICHMOND, Ind. -- The 2020-21 River States Conference Women's Basketball Championship bracket was seeded on Wednesday, Feb. 17 using a double-randomized draw. The pairings and bracket positions were unveiled during a live broadcast of the RSC Basketball Championship Pairings Show on the RSC Game Central.
The RSC Women's Basketball Championship will feature all 11 teams that elected to participate in the postseason this year. The first round will be Feb. 22 with the quarterfinals on Feb. 24, the semifinals on Feb. 27 and the championship final on March 2.
The randomized bracket drawing first selected the position on the bracket and then selected the team that would be in that bracket position.
Each of the 11 positions on the bracket were assigned a number. Odd-numbered teams will host their first game of the championship while those receiving a bye will be home or away depending on the team that advances to play them.
For teams that have a bye into the quarterfinals, they will be at home if the home team advances and away if the away team advance. The lone exception in the quarterfinals is that Brescia will host IU Southeast because it drew an odd-numbered spot.
