As if a UConn team needed any more motivation to win the women's tournament, it's looking for revenge against Mississippi State, who knocked the Huskies out in the Final Four a year ago. If Notre Dame advances, the Irish would potentially face No. 2 OR if the seeds hold.

One player who makes every game a must-watch is South Carolina's A'ja Wilson, the favorite to go No. 1 in the 2018 WNBA Draft.

The Four #1 seeds are UConn (Albany Region), Louisville (Lexington Region), Mississippi State (Kanas City Region) and Notre Dame (Spokane Region).

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 bracket for the NCAA Women's Basketball Championship was released Monday. The Women's Final Four games and the championship game will be played in Columbus, Ohio.

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

The Gamecocks are going to be a hard draw for whichever No. 1 seed falls in their bracket, which means one of the must-watch games of the women's tournament comes in the Elite 8. "We seed the teams and then we place them in the bracket using that "S" curve and geography is one of the things that we consider and one of our principals". Thirty-two teams will get automatic bids for winning their conference tournament, and 32 others will receive at-large bids. "We're excited to host the first two at home against two very good basketball teams". "The growth of our program at this time previous year, we were hoping to have done enough to get in".

The first round of the women's tournament begins on Saturday.

The NCAA revealed Sunday night the final eight teams under consideration for the last four spots, and West Virginia ended up among the first four teams out.

“We spent nearly seven hours on that decision of who those last four teams in and first four out were, ” NCAA womens basketball committee chair Rhonda Bennett said.

Buffalo, Creighton, Minnesota and Oklahoma were the final teams to get bids to the tournament.

Oklahoma got in with a 16-14 record - the fewest wins for an at-large team since 2005. "We took as long as it took to get those teams into the bracket".

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