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.
"You have to start somewhere in this tournament", Irish head coach Mike Brey said.
It also provides the other No. 1 seeds with one fewer foe to take on at the Final Four, as SC is easily the most unsafe of the No. 2 seeds. It's the ninth time that UConn has entered the NCAAs undefeated, including a year ago when the Huskies went in as the overwhelming favorite before their 111-game winning streak ended with a loss to Mississippi State in the Final Four. The games will begin Friday.
The top seeded U Conn Huskies are joined by the second ranked and reigning champion South Carolina Gamecocks.
UConn, which has been a No. 1 seed every year since 2007, opens up against 16-seed Saint Francis (Pennsylvania) on Saturday morning at home.

"So that would mean we're going to be a little bit different team", Auriemma said.

Marquette claimed a share of the BIG EAST regular season title for the first time in program history and reached the BIG EAST Tournament championship game for the second year in a row, where it fell to DePaul. 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.
Barely made it: (11) Creighton, (11) Buffalo, (12) Oklahoma.
"We felt there was a razor-thin margin between Baylor and Notre Dame", said NCAA women's basketball committee chair Rhonda Bennett.
The NCAA Tournament bracket was revealed Monday night and it was full of both the expected and the shocking. "But we've got a long way to go between now and then". Ohio State earned a No. 3 seed and will play host to No. 14 George Washington in the opening round Saturday, March 17, at 1:30 p.m.
The Crown's Claire Foy was paid less than co-star Matt Smith
However, I would like to state for the record that her getting paid less than Matt Smith is bullshit of the highest order. Minter said the disparity "does not stack up" given that Foy's profile matched Smith's by the start of the second series.
