NCAA women's hoops tournament: UConn could play in Albany

Notre Dame is another team to look at, as they came within single digits to CT when the teams played earlier in the season. The Cardinals have proved to be a bit of an enigma for Notre Dame this season, while the 9-point loss to the UConn women shows that the Irish are capable of competing with the consensus best team in the land. That game would take place on March 30th in Columbus, Ohio.

One interesting part of the bracket is that UConn and last year's title victor, South Carolina, landed in the same regional and could face each other in a regional final in Albany, N.Y. Florida State, Georgia and Duke should also make that corner of the bracket more interesting heading into the regionals weekend. The national championship game is April 1. This season might be one of Coach Muffet McGraw's most impressive performances - her team lost four pivotal players to injury but only three games on the season.

The Irish are in the Spokane Regional and open up against Cal State Northridge on Friday. Two of those losses came to the Cardinals.

UConn is a potential opponent for Notre Dame in the Final Four, should the Irish advance.

Louisville won the A.C.C. for the first time this season. Ohio State and Texas A&M are the third and fourth seeds in that region. Thirty-two teams will get automatic bids for winning their conference tournament, and 32 others will receive at-large bids.

The Lexington Regional is stacked with former NCAA Tournament winners with Baylor the two seed, Tennessee the three and Stanford the four. That streak was snapped when they were defeated by SC, but that doesn't make what Mississippi State's women have done this year any less remarkable-and the seed reflects that.
