(WIBW/AP) -- Oops.

On Monday, ESPN accidentally broadcasted the NCAA women's tournament brackets. But thanks to the mistake, we now know that the Kansas State women are in.

According to the leaked graphics (provided by Blake DuDonis on Twitter), the Wildcats are the nine-seed in the Albany Region and are set to take on No. 8 Michigan on Friday in Louisville, Ky.

The Wildcats went 21-11 on the season and 11-7 in conference play, including two major upset wins against Texas.

The NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament Selection Show is scheduled for 6 p.m. on Monday and will be televised on ESPN.

Maybe act surprised?

Baylor, Notre Dame, Mississippi State and Louisville are the top seeds in the women's NCAA Tournament.

The No. 1 Lady Bears are the top team in the Greensboro Regional while defending champion Notre Dame is the first choice in Chicago. Mississippi State is the No. 1 team in the Portland Regional where Oregon is the second seed. Louisville is the top choice in the Albany Regional where potentially No. 2 UConn waits.

It's the first time since 2006 that the Huskies aren't a No. 1 seed. Tennessee sneaked in to the field as an 11-seed. The Lady Vols have been in every NCAA Tournament since the first one in 1982.

ESPN apologized for its error and aired an early selection show to release the brackets.
