"You can start to see that route to get back to NY". The schedule we play, I knew we'd get somebody two or three that we already played.

"They have handled the disappointment of Sunday very well over the last two days to be prepared and excited to play again tonight".

"It feels good; it's fun", Farrell said. I think we just needed to prove it for a complete 40 minutes.

Mississippi State is a No. 1 seed for the first time in school history.

Notre Dame ranks 103rd in three pointers attempted per game (23.2) while Hampton ranks 267th (17.9).

Sweet 16 and Elite Eight: March 23, 25. Junior guard Asha Thomas is averaging 12.7 points on 34.7 three-point shooting, and senior wing Mikayla Cowling averages 9.4 points, 4.3 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 1.6 steals. Notre Dame routinely beat the Pirates to the bucket, building an insurmountable lead early on the way to an 84-63 blowout in front of a sparse crowd at Purcell Pavilion. The next most-likely team to win is Baylor, with a 12-percent chance of winning. "That's something we really wanted to emphasize in the second half, and we want to continue to guard - and that's going to set the pace for the rest of tournament".

Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey said he felt his guys were over the disappointment of not making the NCAA Tournament field during Monday's practice.

Djogo answered though with a three-pointer of his own to get the Irish back on track up 71-49 with 8:33 remaining.

Standout senior Bonzie Colson had a double-double of 14 points and 12 rebounds as the Irish scored 42 points in the paint.

"We didn't do anything differently", Geben said. "We're thrilled. It's great to be in, and it's great to get the respect of a little higher seed than maybe people thought".

The Irish led 66-43 after the third quarter, leaving no doubt about the outcome of the game. It's the ninth time that UConn has entered the NCAAs undefeated, including a year ago when the Huskies went in as the overwhelming favorite before their 111-game winning streak ended with a loss to Mississippi State in the Final Four. In the time since, while Stevens has proven to be a game-changer in the post, Dangerfield has developed into a well-rounded point guard.

"I think it's valuable now how we lost to Notre Dame", Williams said.

The Bears (21-10) will play Virginia (18-13) in the first round at 2 p.m. Friday in Columbia, S.C. If they advance, the Bears are likely to meet defending champion SC (26-6) on its court Sunday.
