Women's NCAA tournament bracket released

Notre Dame star Matt Farrell

"Hopefully, some of those UConn fans who got so excited about what we were able to do previous year will stay for the second part of Saturday's doubleheader and root us on".

For three teams and all-but-certainly UConn, a season long goal of making it to the Final Four with a shot at a national championship will finally be realized in Buckeye country.

The Gamecocks are the No. 2 seed in the Albany Regional in which the undefeated Huskies are the No. 1 seed.

One interesting part of the bracket is that UConn and last year's title victor, South Carolina, landed in the same regional and could face each other in a regional final in Albany, N.Y. Belmont is a trendy pick to pull of the upset over five-seeded Duke. In fact, if seeds hold, we could be looking at four incredible Elite Eight matchups. The Crimson Tide will be playing their first tournament game since 2012.

"It says a lot about where we are as a program and where we're going", Marquette head coach Carolyn Kieger said.

"I think we played in such a way that, if you were really watching, you were saying: 'OK, this team can elevate".

"I think we have a different approach in just understanding what we need to get done", junior Katie Lou Samuelson said.

Middle school students from Cleveland charter school participating in National School Walkout
Students should check with their school's policies about leaving school grounds without permission before walking off campus. Many are also using the moment to call for stricter gun control laws on both the national and state level.

Not when the top-seeded Fighting Irish's first-round opponent was Hampton. The Cardinals open up against Boise State and are one of eight ACC teams in the field. "We're a little bit older, a little bit more mature, we have two pieces that we didn't have".

The four projected No. 1 seeds have six losses combined, with Notre Dame's three and Louisville's two joining Mississippi State's defeat to SC.

If everything goes as planned the women of UCONN and SC will play here in Albany in our very own Times Union Center, on March 24th and 26th. 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.

You can find the complete NCAA Women's Basketball Championship bracket here.

Oklahoma got in with a 16-14 record - the fewest wins for an at-large team since 2005. But of course both teams will have to navigate a tough road to get there.

The NCAA released its brackets for the upcoming women's basketball tournament Monday night, including the Albany Regional.

U.Va. or UMBC plays Sunday in the second round against the victor of No. (31-2) will take on No. 16 seed UMBC on Friday night about 9:20 in Charlotte, N.C. U.Va. 8 seed Creighton against No. 9 seed Kansas State.
