Mississippi State is a No. 1 seed for the first time in school history.
The University of CT women's basketball team was selected as the No. 1 seed in the Albany Region of the 2018 NCAA Division I Women's Basketball Championship, as announced by the NCAA Monday. Notre Dame has been a top-seed the last seven years. The rest of the crew - seniors Kia Nurse and Gabby Williams, juniors Samuelson and Napheesa Collier and others - have not only last season's experiences but the year of training, practices and games that followed. We're a different team than we were past year. The loss broke a 111-game winning streak for UConn and ended a string of four consecutive national championships for the Huskies.

Canada offers a combination of scoring (16.8 ppg), playmaking (6.9 apg) and defense (3.2, 12th in NCAA) that few prospects can match.
The 64 teams that will participate in the 2018 NCAA tournament were revealed Monday evening, and the top overall seed came as a surprise to no one.
