UConn, Irish, Louisville, Miss State top seeds in women's NCAAs

"Hopefully, some of those UConn fans who got so excited about what we were able to do a year ago will stay for the second part of Saturday's doubleheader and root us on". The Final Four will be held in Columbus.

Like the Huskies, the Irish are a No. 1 seed again. The 8/9 matchup in the Spokane region pits South Dakota State against Villanova, with 2017 Final Four participant OR being the 2-seed in the region.

Notre Dame enters the tournament as the top seed in the Spokane Region, but when it comes to seniors to focus on, we begin at the bottom portion of the bracket. Belmont is a trendy pick to pull of the upset over five-seeded Duke. The Crimson Tide will be playing their first tournament game since 2012.

The Ducks could stay out west and play in Spokane, where coach Kelly Graves spent many years as Gonzaga's coach.

UConn coach Geno Auriemma said the respect for those teams is a step forward in the women's game and he believes mid-major teams will make some noise in this year's tournament.

"I don't think (the different rules) were too bad, I think just the 10-minute quarters ... it's a little different", senior guard Matt Farrell said. "If we're fortunate enough to advance, we get the opportunity to play in Lexington, which would be great for our fans".

The Gamecocks, who handed Mississippi State its lone defeat of the season in the SEC tournament final, host North Carolina A&T on March 16 with California vs. Virginia being the 7/10 matchup.

If defending national champion SC is to make it back to the Final Four for a second straight season, it will most likely have to do so by taking down No. 1 CT in the Elite Eight.

Barring one of the greatest upsets in the history of the sport, UConn will play the victor of that game Monday at Gampel.

The NCAA revealed Sunday night the final eight teams under consideration for the last four spots in the tournament.

Tennessee continues its appearance streak and remains the only school to participate in all 37 NCAA Division I Women's Basketball Championships since its inception in 1982.

Oklahoma got in with a 16-14 record - the fewest wins for an at-large team since 2005. And then you go, 'Huh, we were ready for this.' Or, 'We weren't.' ... The teams who just missed the tournament normally are still reeling from their near-miss that it takes them awhile to catch their bearings in the NIT.

Everyone who follows women's basketball turned their eyes to the Albany region once the bracket was released.

The U of L women will face Boise State (23-9) in the first round at noon Friday in the KFC Yum!
