NCAA Tournament, 5th Ld-Writethru,923

The Lexington Regional is stacked with former NCAA Tournament winners with Baylor the two-seed, Tennessee the three and Stanford the four. After blowing a double-digit fourth-quarter lead to CT (32-0, 16-0 AAC) and losing 100-69 to Louisville, Notre Dame's chances of a top seed looked slim. The Albany bracket includes overall top tournament seed CT, a program which has won 11 national championships - four in a row between 2013-16.

The top seeds are UConn, Mississippi State, Notre Dame and Louisville, but every team will be striving for a Final Four spot in Columbus, Ohio. Florida State, Georgia and Duke should also make that corner of the bracket more interesting heading into the regionals weekend. The Bulldogs lost the title game a year ago after snapping UConn's 111-game winning streak in the Final Four, and they followed up their 34-5 2016-17 campaign with an undefeated regular season.

UConn is a potential opponent for Notre Dame in the Final Four, should the Irish advance.

Defending national champion SC and A'ja Wilson await as a possible Elite Eight matchup for UConn in the Albany Regional.

Other notable teams among the Field of 64 include first-timers Nicholls State, Northern Colorado, Mercer and Seattle, as well as the only team to make every women's tournament in history - Tennessee.

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

The Irish will face CSU-Northridge out of the Big West Conference on Friday at 5 pm EST.

Notre Dame's three losses came to just two teams -UConn and Louisville. 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 Ducks could stay out west and play in Spokane, where coach Kelly Graves spent many years as Gonzaga's coach. The SEC has seven teams in the tournament, and the Pac-12 has six.

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 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. "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.
