UConn Selected as No. 1 Seed in Albany Region

We are all excited at the chance to play in the postseason for the fifth time in the last six years. That game would take place on March 30th in Columbus, Ohio.

There will be more smiling this year as the Huskies are once again a number one seed in the Albany Region and the nearly unanimous favorite to return to the Final Four.

SC enters as the defending champion, while last year's runner-up Mississippi State is looking to get back to the title game after a phenomenal season.

Purdue, Rutgers, Southern Cal and West Virginia were the others on the list the NCAA released Sunday of the final eight under consideration. Belmont is a trendy pick to pull of the upset over five-seeded Duke. That's because we have 63 games ahead of us and a whole lot of time on our couches doing nothing but watching games and avoiding social interaction.

"We need to prepare for an ACC opponent", Farrell said of the team's mindset going into a few days of rest. "Coaches highlighted points we needed to emphasize during the game, and for the most part we executed well, got stops, rebounds and were able to make some easy buckets around the rim".

UConn, which has been a No. 1 seed every year since 2007, opens up against 16-seed Saint Francis (Pennsylvania) on Saturday morning.

The Golden Eagles (23-9) have earned consecutive berths to the NCAA tournament for the first time since the 1998-99 and 1999-00 campaigns and are making their 11th appearance in program history.

UConn, Seeking 12th NCAA Title, Lands Top Overall Seed

CT is the top overall seed as it begins its quest to win a 12th national championship after recording its seventh undefeated regular season. With most of their players back from last season's runner-up finish - including Morgan William, who hit the game-winner in overtime to knock off UConn - the Bulldogs hope to make another deep NCAA run.

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.

"We spent nearly seven hours on that decision of who those last four teams in and first four out were", NCAA women's basketball committee chair Rhonda Bennett said.

Buffalo, Creighton, Minnesota and Oklahoma were the final teams to get bids to the tournament.

The committee, however, chose to look at both teams' entire body of work.

After all the drama from the NCAA men's basketball tournament selection show dies down, the field of 64 for the women's tournament gets drawn Monday.

U.Va. or UMBC plays Sunday in the second round against the victor of No. (31-2) will take on No. 16 seed UMBC on Friday night about 9:20 in Charlotte, N.C. U.Va. 8 seed Creighton against No. 9 seed Kansas State.
