This game marks the first time a 15-seed has taken a 2-seed to overtime.

Conference RepresentativesEdit

These charts show who represented UTSA's conference in the NCAA tournament. UTSA was an independent from 1981-1983, then joined the Oil Country Athletic Conference for two seasons, and returned to independent affiliation for the 1985-1986 season. The OCAC was not an automatically-qualifying conference for NCAA Tournament bids.[2] UTSA was a member of the Trans America Athletic Conference (renamed in 2001 to the Atlantic Sun Conference) from 1986-1991, but the conference was not an automatic qualifier for the women's tournament the way it was at the time for the men's tournament. This is because the women's tournament did not expand to 64 teams until 1994 whereas the men's was 64 teams by 1985.

Southland Conference (1991-2012)Edit

The Southland Conference has fared much better in the women's tournament than in the men's. While UTSA was a member, the conference went 6-22.  This is mainly due to SFA's being a 1990's powerhouse, having made the tournament every year from 1988 to 2002, being as high as a 2-seed.  During UTSA's Southland Conference stint, only one at-large bid was secured by the conference for the women's tournament, matching the men's.
