God's Bracket 2010: Women's Edition

And here's a look at the teams from religiously affiliated schools in this year's NCAA Women's Division I Basketball Tournament.

I'm getting ready to leave on vacation and won't have Internet access for a few days, so I don't have time to write any commentary. But I will say this: Regardless of your religious affiliation, you should pick Connecticut to win this tournament.

Here's the rundown:

Roman Catholic

  • Notre Dame (#2, Kansas City)

  • St. John's (#6, Dayton)

  • Xavier (#3, Sacramento)

  • Georgetown (#5, Memphis)

  • Gonzaga (#7, Sacramento)

  • Dayton (#8, Memphis)

  • DePaul (#11, Sacramento)

  • St. Francis (PA) (#15, Dayton)


  • Baylor (#4, Memphis)

  • Liberty (#13, Kansas City)

United Methodist

  • Duke (#2, Memphis)

Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)

  • Texas Christian (#9, Memphis)

Note: While not listed, Vanderbilt (#6, Sacramento) has historical ties to The United Methodist Church; Princeton (#11, Dayton) has historical ties to Presbyterianism; and Marist (#12, Memphis) has historical ties to the Roman Catholic Church.

See Kneeling in the End Zone: Spiritual Lessons From the World of Sports for an appendix with a complete list of religiously affiliated Division I schools.
