Selection Monday for the NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament may have tipped into Manic Monday if reports swirling online are to be believed.

Several people have posted screenshots on social media containing what appears to be bracket information for NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament. According to some who snapped photos of their television screens to share the information, the programming error happened on ESPNU.

With the ESPNU graphics apparently posted in error by the sports media giant, we cannot verify at this time whether the bracket information is accurate. Therefore, Swish Appeal will not be posting the NCAA Women’s Tournament bracket information that was leaked early until its content has been verified during tonight’s selection show.

After the potential leak, the selection show was been moved up to 5 p.m. ET, Monday, March 18. The show is airing on ESPN2 and WatchESPN.

[Update, 5:38 p.m. ET: The full bracket is out. You can view it here.]
