The bracket for the 2018 NCAA Tournament was revealed on Monday evening and, with no surprise, CT enters as the No. 1 overall seed.

One New York team is also in the Albany bracket, albeit as an underdog - No. 11 seed Buffalo, who will meet South Florida in a first-round game. On the other end of the spectrum, Nicholls State, Northern Colorado, Mercer and Seattle are all making their first NCAA tournament appearance.

Marquette is 14-12 in 26 previous meetings with the Flyers and have claimed 12 of the last 14 matchups in the series.

Like the Huskies, the Irish are a No. 1 seed again. The program has never advanced past the second round.

Notre Dame is the fourth 1-seed in the eyes of the selection committee, and the Fighting Irish will begin play on March 16 with Big West tournament champion CSUN being the opposition. If there is one team that could stop them, it is two-seed SC.

The tournament's other No. 1 seeds are Louisville, Mississippi State and Notre Dame.

"We're really excited about the opportunity", Louisville coach Jeff Walz said. "I think one thing that came out of a year ago is that we know, and I think everyone else does, that we are beatable".

Defending national champion SC and A'ja Wilson await as a possible Elite Eight matchup for UConn in the Albany Regional. UConn defeated Louisville and Notre Dame in the regular season and lost to Mississippi State last season in the Final Four. The Huskies (32-0) enter the NCAA Tournament as the lone unbeaten team and went wire-to-wire as the unanimous top team.

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.

Mississippi State has been one of the top stories in the sport this season, as it won its first 32 games before falling to SC in the SEC tournament final. The game time will be determined following the first round games.

Oklahoma got in with a 16-14 record - the fewest wins for an at-large team since 2005.

"We spent nearly seven hours on that decision of who those last four teams in and first four out were", NCAA women's basketball committee chair Rhonda Bennett said. "I think this team made a decision to get better and chose to dig in".

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

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.
