March Madness 2018: NCAA women's basketball tournament schedule

March Madness 2018: NCAA women's basketball tournament schedule

Baylor, Louisville, Mississippi State and Notre Dame followed UConn in the poll. The Lexington Regional is stacked with former NCAA Tournament winners with Baylor the two-seed, Tennessee the three and Stanford the four. If Notre Dame advances, the Irish would head out west to potentially face No. 2 seed OR if the seeds hold. The top four teams matched the NCAA Tournament selection committee's No. 1 seeds: Villanova (30-4) stayed at No. 2.

Notre Dame finished the regular season with a 29-3 record with losses to UConn on December 3rd and twice to Louisville on January 11th and then in the ACC Tournament Championship game on March 4th. The Cardinals have proved to be a bit of an enigma for Notre Dame this season, while the 9-point loss to the UConn women shows that the Irish are capable of competing with the consensus best team in the land. The Women's Final Four games and the championship game will be played in Columbus, Ohio. The national championship game is on Sunday, April 1.

Joining the Huskies as top seeds are Notre Dame, Louisville and Mississippi State. The Texas native went 126-108 in seven seasons as the head coach at Fresno State, taking the Bulldogs to the postseason three times and winning the Mountain West Conference tournament in 2016, when Terry led the team to 25 wins.

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.

The other three passengers, who had to be cut from the helicopter's safety harnesses, were declared dead at the hospital. The National Transportation Safety Board said Monday that 14 of its employees were en route to investigate the crash.

Mississippi State is a No. 1 seed for the first time in school history. The Atlantic Coast Conference was next with five in the Top 25. Oregon, South Carolina, Texas, UCLA and Ohio State round out the first 10 teams. The Ducks made one of the great runs previous year reaching the Elite Eight for the first time in program history. The Sooners are the first team since 2005 to get an at-large with only 16 wins and they went just 1-8 against RPI top-50 teams. St. Mary's (28-5), which missed the NCAA Tournament, is ranked No. 25. They received all 32 votes from the national media panel Monday, March 12, 2018.

Baylor coach Kim Mulkey said she doesn't see it as that big a deal.

The NCAA Tournament bracket was revealed Monday night and it was full of both the expected and the shocking.
