The No. 1 seeds were fairly obvious beforehand and the committee didn't surprise us: UConn is the top overall seed, while Mississippi State, Louisville, and Notre Dame all command their own regions.

Continuing an already record-setting season, women's basketball earned the program's first-ever No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament.

Past year we learned UConn and Geno Auriemma were, in fact, human in the NCAA Tournament.

"They're better at saying they're prepared", coach Geno Auriemma said.

In what many call a total disrespect, the Mountain West Conference champs, who beat Nevada Friday on a buzzer beater for the title, were given a lowly 16th seed and must travel to the home of the tournament's #1 seeded Louisville Cardinals.

Durr was named the ACC Player of the Year and averages 18.8 points, 3.0 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.0 steals per game.

"I'm just super excited to get another opportunity to play in the tournament", Marquette junior guard Natisha Hiedeman said.

This year's squad is heading to Louisville on a much lower note than the 2016 squad, who had just beaten DePaul to capture the program's first-ever BIG EAST Tournament title.

"That's a little bit disappointing", Boise State coach Gordy Presnell said. Sexton, who scored 40 points in November in an 89-84 loss to Minnesota, has posted between 21 and 31 points in each of the Crimson Tide's last four games, leading them to a run to the Southeastern Conference tournament semifinals that may have paved the way to the NCAA tournament.

"We had a very nice meal at his house, a few very nice bottles of wine", Walz said.

If everything goes as planned the women of UCONN and SC will play here in Albany in our very own Times Union Center, on March 24th and 26th. In their way could be No. 2 seed Baylor, No. 3 Tennessee and No. 4 Stanford.

Barring one of the greatest upsets in the history of the sport, UConn will play the victor of that game Monday at Gampel. On the other end of the spectrum, Nicholls State, Northern Colorado, Mercer and Seattle are all making their first NCAA tournament appearance.

"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. The game time will be announced Tuesday. "We took as long as it took to get those teams into the bracket".

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.

Mississippi State, which won 32 straight games before losing to SC, opens play on March 17 against 16-seed Nicholls State.
