ND earns No. 1 seedin women’s tourney
Geno Auriemma and his UConn Huskies hope to achieve history by the end of this NCAA women’s basketball tournament.
The top-seeded Huskies (34-0) are trying for a record ninth NCAA title, which would break a tie with Tennessee for most all-time. Standing in the way of undefeated Connecticut’s run could be Notre Dame. The Irish were also unbeaten this season and earned the top seed in their own region. It’s only the second time that two teams entered the tournament undefeated.
Despite not playing this season, the former Big East rivals know plenty about each other having met 12 times over the previous three seasons. The unbeaten wouldn’t meet until the national championship game on April 8 in Nashville. Notre Dame isn’t intimidated by Connecticut; the Irish have won seven of the past nine meetings with the Huskies.
Tennessee and South Carolina also earned No. 1 seeds. While it’s the 22nd time that the Lady Vols have earned a top spot, it’s the first for the Gamecocks.
Notre Dame (32-0) opens against Robert Morris (21-11) at 1:30 p.m. Saturday at Toledo, Ohio.
