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.

Buffalo, Creighton, Minnesota and Oklahoma got in.

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.
