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

Getty Images

In a regular season matchup between UConn and SC in February, the UConn women defeated SC by 25 points. The Huskies are 95-10 all-time as a No. 1 seed.

The Huskies enter as the lone unbeaten team and will be vying for their 12th national championship.

Aside from the favorite to win it all, the Huskies, 63 other teams will try to do what the SC did previous year and cut the nets down in Columbus. Last season, UConn came into the NCAAs as the overwhelming favorite before losing to Mississippi State in the Final Four.

While the 12-point lead at the break appeared to be a comfortable one - the Irish led by as many as 19 points in the first half - and Torres said the team recommitted to defense in the second half to eventually extend that gap.

All in all, it's a balanced bracket.

Joining UConn on the one line are SEC regular season champion Mississippi State, ACC regular season co-champion and tournament champion Louisville, and ACC regular season co-champion Notre Dame.

Notre Dame (21-14) handled Hampton (19-16) easily in the opening round of the National Invitation Tournament on Tuesday evening inside Purcell Pavilion, winning by a score of 84-63. The Huskies are about to face critical moments - doubtfully in Storrs, perhaps in Albany, certainly in Columbus, Ohio, if they advance - that will make or break their quest for another ideal season. Buffalo, Creighton, Minnesota and Oklahoma got in.

"A great reward for this team for what they've been through ... playing the toughest schedule and getting a No. 1 seed", McGraw said.

L.A. Lakers at Golden State, ESPN, 9:30 p.m. Purdue, Rutgers, Southern Cal and West Virginia were the first four teams out. So the Scarlet Knights can't be thrilled. I told them, 'One down, two to go to get to the Garden'. Two of those losses came to Louisville.

Other notable teams among the Field of 64 include first-timers Nicholls State, Northern Colorado, Mercer and Seattle, as well as the only team to make every women's tournament in history - Tennessee.

First-round site to watch: Athens.

The top seeds are no strangers to each other or the Final Four. Duke is the No. 5 seed. "But we've got a long way to go between now and then". "Obviously not", SC coach Dawn Staley said.

Albany is closer to Columbia than Sioux Falls and Stockton, South Carolina's previous regional spots, but it's no Lexington.

Therefore, keep an eye on all of the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds on Tuesday and Wednesday. Baylor, Texas and OR all are farther away than SC.

The Huskies are making their 30 consecutive appearance in the tournament and have advanced to the regional semifinals in each of the last 24 seasons. The games will begin Friday.

✨ So fresh. So clean.
