Notre Dame Women's Basketball: Irish Get 1-Seed in NCAA Tourney

Mike Brey calls UConn Selected as No. 1 Seed in Albany Region
Lucia Summers | 15 March, 2018, 00:36

The bracket for the NCAA Women's Basketball Championship was released Monday.

The NCAA Women's selection show is behind us and Albany.we got our wish. "We were a two seed in 2005 and we played and won the national championship". Last season, UConn came into the NCAAs as the overwhelming favorite before losing to Mississippi State in the Final Four that ended their 111-game winning streak. "Notre Dame did have the top strength of schedule in the country and they did have the best strength of schedule in the country and they had nine more top-50 wins than Baylor and those were the reason that the committee put Notre Dame on that one line and Baylor on that two line".

"You have to start somewhere in this tournament", Irish head coach Mike Brey said.

The Four #1 seeds are UConn (Albany Region), Louisville (Lexington Region), Mississippi State (Kanas City Region) and Notre Dame (Spokane Region).

"We wouldn't be in that kind of position if we didn't have a great year and we hope to keep that going", OR coach Kelly Graves 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.

Most of UConn's prominent players lived through that loss and claim that, because of it, they have spent this season embracing all the fine details that - maybe, occasionally - they let slip through the course of past year until they were ultimately caught off guard. There are also a few other teams that have performed well against top competition like Florida and Texas Tech. "I'm so proud of this group and what they have accomplished". "Who else is in, South Dakota State?". The Sweet Sixteen takes place March 23-24, followed by the Elite Eight March 25-26. Buffalo, Creighton, Minnesota and Oklahoma got in. Oklahoma, which went 16-14, was given a 12 seed and an at-large bid. And with it, a path to the Final Four that is clear of both UConn and SC.

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

"We have really stepped things up as a team", Walz said. 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.

"Our fans will travel very well, because it's right up the road", said QU coach Tricia Fabbri. "The growth of our program at this time previous year, we were hoping to have done enough to get in".

The Bobcats are now on a 22-game winning streak.
