All four teams are perennial powerhouses in their respective conferences and they will no doubt make the 2018 NCAA women's basketball tournament a lot of fun to watch.

Undefeated UConn is back as the top seed this year. UConn has made the Elite Eight 12 straight times and is striving for a record 12th national championship. The 2018 Women's Final Four will be held March 30 and April 1 at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.

"What can you do?" Is it an impossible feat? "I think one thing that came out of previous year is that we know, and I think everyone else does, that we are beatable". But they also went 7-9 in the Big Ten and lost to Washington State.

No. 1 UConn def.

"Geography is one of our principals when it comes to placing teams in the bracket", Bennett said.

UConn will play its first game of the tournament on Saturday at 11am ET, against 16-seed St. Francis of Pennsylvania. But Lexington lacks any other top-10 teams and has only five ranked teams overall.

Wilson and the Gamecocks face a hard path in front of them as they attempt to defend last year's NCAA title.

"I wouldn't say we look at it like our season is just now starting", Williams said. "(Being a No. 1) is quite an accomplishment for what we've been through all year long".

Microsoft expands the Cloud - including Swiss Datacenters
Also starting March 14, existing Office 365 customers from France and French territories will be able to opt-in to be moved to the local cloud regions in France.

If Notre Dame wins its first two games, they will head west. "We can look around at the bracket now", Brey said. "That's awesome", McGraw said.

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 Cardinals open up against Boise State and are one of eight ACC teams in the field. "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".

"They have handled the disappointment of Sunday very well over the last two days to be prepared and excited to play again tonight". In their way could be No. 2 seed Baylor, No. 3 Tennessee and No. 4 Stanford.

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 making their first appearance.

Marquette claimed a share of the BIG EAST regular season title for the first time in program history and reached the BIG EAST Tournament championship game for the second year in a row, where it fell to DePaul. The Huskies (32-0) enter the NCAA Tournament as the lone unbeaten team and went wire-to-wire as the unanimous top team.

Snubbed? Purdue, Rutgers, USC, West Virginia.

The NCAA Women's selection show is behind us and Albany.we got our wish.

Which way do we go? . "We're not going to take it for granted; we're just going to enjoy playing together".
