Women's basketball earns first-ever NCAA No. 1 seed

Mike Brey calls

Quinnipiac is seeded No. 9 in the same region and will open at Gampel against No. 8 Miami on Saturday at 1:30 p.m.

The University of CT women's basketball team was selected as the No. 1 seed in the Albany Region of the 2018 NCAA Division I Women's Basketball Championship, as announced by the NCAA Monday. We are all excited at the chance to play in the postseason for the fifth time in the last six years.

This year's NCAA Tournament will kick off March 16 and run through April 1.

"This seed speaks volumes about how we're playing and the adversity we overcame throughout the year", Thomas said.

"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.

"I don't think (the different rules) were too bad, I think just the 10-minute quarters ... it's a little different", senior guard Matt Farrell said. This years field features some newcomers and some mid-major teams who despite a loss in their conference tournaments belong in the NCAA tournament. "Coaches highlighted points we needed to emphasize during the game, and for the most part we executed well, got stops, rebounds and were able to make some easy buckets around the rim".

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

The Gamecocks, who handed Mississippi State its lone defeat of the season in the SEC tournament final, host North Carolina A&T on March 16 with California vs. Virginia being the 7/10 matchup. This might be one of coach Muffet McGraw's finest accomplishments as Notre Dame lost four pivotal players to injury, but only three games on the season. On the other end of the spectrum, Nicholls State, Northern Colorado, Mercer and Seattle are all making their first NCAA tournament appearance. The Albany bracket includes overall top tournament seed CT, a program which has won 11 national championships - four in a row between 2013-16.

"We felt there was a razor-thin margin between Baylor and Notre Dame", said NCAA women's basketball committee chair Rhonda Bennett.

Senior Saniya Chong, not Dangerfield, was on the court when Mississippi State's Morgan William hit the overtime game-winner in Dallas.

Buffalo, Creighton, Minnesota and Oklahoma were the final teams to get bids to the tournament. "We took as long as it took to get those teams into the bracket".

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

The U of L women will face Boise State (23-9) in the first round at noon Friday in the KFC Yum!
