UConn opens NCAA Tourney Saturday at home

The University of Louisville women's basketball team received a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament, and its road will be close to home if they keep advancing.

UConn is back in a familiar place - the No. 1 overall seed in the women's basketball NCAA Tournament.

Junior Asia Durr was named ACC Player of the Year, marking the second time in the last three years that a Louisville player has earned the honor as senior Myisha Hines-Allen was named ACC Player of the Year following her sophomore campaign.

"Geography is one of our principals when it comes to placing teams in the bracket", Bennett said.

UConn will play its first game of the tournament on Saturday at 11am ET, against 16-seed St. Francis of Pennsylvania. "(Being a No. 1) is quite an accomplishment for what we've been through all year long".

The Ducks could stay out west and play in Spokane, where coach Kelly Graves spent many years as Gonzaga's coach. "We're not going to take it for granted; we're just going to enjoy playing together". "We have a little agreement here, he owes me three bottles right now for winning the league championship, regular season and three for winning the conference tournament title". Center hosting Boise State. Maybe even more than we wished for.

"I think it's valuable now how we lost to Notre Dame", Williams 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. While the Lady Vols have been in the NCAA Tournament every year since it began in 1982, Nicholls State, Northern Colorado, Mercer and Seattle will be making their first appearances.

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.

Apart from fellow 1s Louisville and Notre Dame, 2 seeds South Carolina, Texas, Oregon, and Baylor are all formidable opponents.

Oklahoma got in with a 16-14 record - the fewest wins for an at-large team since 2005. "I think this team made a decision to get better and chose to dig in".

The NCAA released its brackets for the upcoming women's basketball tournament Monday night, including the Albany Regional.

The game opened at a pedestrian pace, with the score sitting at 10-8 in favor of Notre Dame at the under-five minute timeout in the first quarter, with senior forward Martinas Geben piling in six early points.

Hampton responded on the other end, but the Irish then reeled off a 7-2 run fueled by Gibbs' second three-pointer of the game to take a 32-20 lead with 6:08 remaining in the first half.
