UConn Selected as No. 1 Seed in Albany Region

Baylor coach Kim Mulkey said she doesn't see it as that big a deal. In fact, if seeds hold, we could be looking at four incredible Elite Eight matchups. UConn will have tough competition to fight through, as Baylor, Louisville, and Mississippi State - the team that knocked them off in the Final Four a year ago - all look strong.

Mississippi State almost pulled off the Cinderella story past year after ending UConn's 111-game win streak to advance to the national championship game, before having the glass slipper swiped away by SC.

Geno Auriemma's Huskies, who are looking for the program's 12th national title, will begin play against 16-seed Saint Francis-PA on March 17 in Storrs. Louisville was a runner-up for the national championship in both 2009 and 2013, while Notre Dame has played in five of the last seven Women's Final Four's. "I think one thing that came out of past year is that we know, and I think everyone else does, that we are beatable".

"I'm really proud of this group", Brey said. I think Z adds a lot to our game and Crystal has improved a lot as a player.

The 2-seed in the Lexington (Kentucky) region is Baylor, which at 31-1 was a team some believed had an argument to be on the one line.
