The NCAA Women's basketball tournament is going to boast some of the best basketball played during the month of March, and that's a guarantee.

While all the rage is centered around March Madness right now, let's not forget about this tournament, which is bound to be just as epic.

If you haven't heard of a young lady named Brittney Griner—I suggest you tune in.
