NCAA women's tournament: What to know after the bracket reveal

NCAA women's tournament: What to know after the bracket reveal

The No. 2 seed in the regional is SC, last year's national champion. "They're two really good teams - we need to prepare and we need to defend like we did tonight". They have the No. 1 overall seed, Virginia, as well as this year's SEC powerhouses Kentucky and Tennessee. Notre Dame is another team to look at, as they came within single digits to CT when the teams played earlier in the season.

"We've never been in the West bracket". I think Z adds a lot to our game and Crystal has improved a lot as a player.

Next up for Notre Dame will be a second-round matchup against the victor of Wednesday's game between No. 4-seed Penn State and No. 5-seed Temple. "And they handled the disappointment of Sunday very well over the last two days to be prepared and be excited to play again tonight". "If we're fortunate enough to advance, we get the opportunity to play in Lexington, which would be great for our fans".

A No. 1 seed for the first time in school history, Mississippi State is seeking its first national championship. So let's make the ladies feel welcome as the MAAC and Times Union Center Present the 2018 Women's NCAA regional round of hoops.

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. Spoiler: UConn is going to make it!

That breaks down to an average of about $7.5 milllion a year, a significant raise over what he was making with the Vikings. Richburg (6-4, 300) was originally drafted by the New York Giants in the second round (43 overall) of the 2014 NFL Draft.

"We felt there was a razor-thin margin between Baylor and Notre Dame", said NCAA women's basketball committee chair Rhonda Bennett. Thirty-two teams will get automatic bids for winning their conference tournament, and 32 others will receive at-large bids. And then you go, 'Huh, we were ready for this.' Or, 'We weren't.' ... "We took as long as it took to get those teams into the bracket".

The Irish extended the lead in the second quarter thanks to sophomore guard T.J. Gibbs shooting 2-of-2 from behind the NIT tournament's extended 3-point line - one of the unique rule changes, much like the division of the game into 10-minute quarters instead of 20-minute halves, that the NCAA instituted for the tournament.

Bennett said Oklahoma's strength of schedule, which was second best in the country, was a key to its selection.

So as the Huskies begin a new NCAA Tournament journey, four victories from an 11th consecutive Final Four and six from a 12th national title, their collective mind, now more so than ever, is flashing back to last year's upset loss to Mississippi State - not just because highlights of that game were splashed all over the TVs they were watching Monday night while the 64-team bracket was unveiled. Also in the Starkville subregional are 8-seed Syracuse and 9-seed Oklahoma State.
