"The growth of our program at this time a year ago, we were hoping to have done enough to get in". Two wins on their home court and two more in Albany (when they could meet defending national champion SC in the Elite Eight) would send UConn to Columbus for the Final Four (where they could meet Notre Dame in a national semifinal).

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. That streak was snapped when they were defeated by SC, but that doesn't make what Mississippi State's women have done this year any less remarkable-and the seed reflects that.

Speaking of the Bulldogs, they are one of the three other projected No. 1 seeds by ESPN along with Louisville and Notre Dame. Belmont is a trendy pick to pull of the upset over five-seeded Duke. Notre Dame led 23-16 after one quarter. The game time will be announced Tuesday.

OR coach Kelly Graves is very familiar with Spokane, having coached Gonzaga from 2000-1014, leading the Zags to a regional final in 2012.

"We're really excited about the opportunity", Louisville coach Jeff Walz said. "We're not going to take it for granted; we're just going to enjoy playing together". "We're thrilled. It's great to be in, and it's great to get the respect of a little higher seed than maybe people thought". OR is the 2-seed in Notre Dame's region, Ohio St is the 3-seed, Texas A&M the 4-seed and DePaul the 5-seed.

The Bulldogs won their first 32 games this season before losing to SC in the SEC title game. On the other end of the spectrum, Nicholls State, Northern Colorado, Mercer and Seattle are all making their first NCAA tournament appearance.

Barring one of the greatest upsets in the history of the sport, UConn will play the victor of that game Monday at Gampel.

Oklahoma got in with a 16-14 record - the fewest wins for an at-large team since 2005 - a day after the Oklahoma men got an at-large berth with an 18-13 record and losses in 11 of their final 15 games. "We went through those resumes and their body of work". The teams who just missed the tournament normally are still reeling from their near-miss that it takes them awhile to catch their bearings in the NIT.
