UConn, Irish, Louisville, Miss. State top seeds in women's NCAAs

UConn back as women's top seed

It was announced tonight on ESPN during the NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament Selection Show the the Notre Dame women's basketball team would be a 1-seed in the NCAA Tournament. With AP Photos.There were five teams vying for the four No. 1 seeds in the NCAA Tournament, and when the music stopped, Baylor was left without a chair. The second weekend of the competition takes place at four neutral venues, while the Final Four resides in Columbus, Ohio.

"We've won a national championship as a two seed, we've won it as a one seed", she said.

Mississippi State lost a year ago to SC in the championship game.

Baylor, with just one loss on the year, fell to a No. 2 seed. The 32-0 team will open play Saturday in the Albany Regional against 16-seed Saint Francis (Pennsylvania).

The Huskies have wins over 10 ranked opponents, including projected No. 1 seed Louisville and perennial power SC.

Notre Dame (29-3) gets the top seed in Spokane, but would have to play what amounts to a road game in the regional final if No. 2 seeded OR makes it that far. Because the one has to play the two.

Scott told Law&Crime that the 32-year-old bride caused a three-vehicle crash at an intersection in the city of Marana. The accident happened at about 10.30am on Monday in Marana, about 30 miles north of Tuscon.

The Irish will face CSU-Northridge out of the Big West Conference on Friday at 5 pm EST. OR is the 2-seed in Notre Dame's region, Ohio St is the 3-seed, Texas A&M the 4-seed and DePaul the 5-seed.

The Ducks potentially could stay out west and play in Spokane, where Graves spent many years as Gonzaga's coach.

"If we are fortunate enough to go back to Spokane where I spent so many awesome years at Gonzaga, that would be incredible", he said. "It's amusing how things changed in a year".

Speaking of the Bulldogs, they are one of the three other projected No. 1 seeds by ESPN along with Louisville and Notre Dame. The Cardinals open up against Boise State.

"We're really excited about the opportunity", Louisville coach Jeff Walz said. "If we're fortunate enough to advance, we get the opportunity to play in Lexington, which would be great for our fans".

The Lexington Regional is stacked with former NCAA Tournament winners with Baylor the two-seed, Tennessee the three and Stanford the four.

The DGCA has also ordered the airlines not to refit the engines even though there are spares in their inventories. Indigo has been asked to ground 8 A320 Neos.

Stanford potentially is headed to Lexington for the third straight year if it can advance.

Mississippi State has been one of the top stories in the sport this season, as it won its first 32 games before falling to SC in the SEC tournament final. With most of their players back from last season's runner-up finish - including Morgan Williams, who hit the game-winner in overtime to knock off UConn - the Bulldogs hope to make another deep NCAA run.

Nicholls State, Northern Colorado, Mercer and Seattle will be making their first appearance.

The women's NCAA Tournament field of 64 teams has been revealed, meaning it's time to fill out those brackets.

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