UConn earns No. 1 overall seed in women's NCAA Tournament
UConn's quest for a third straight national championship begins at home.
The Huskies are the top overall seed in the women's NCAA Tournament and Monday night were placed in the Albany Region. They also are seeking their 10th overall title which would tie Geno Auriemma with UCLA men's coach John Wooden for most all-time.
UConn will open up against St. Francis, Brooklyn, which is making its first tournament appearance. The Terriers (15-18) are the 10th team to enter the NCAAs with a losing record.
The Huskies will play on their campus in the first two rounds.
The 64-team tournament begins Friday with the national championship game Tuesday April 7 in Tampa. This season the women's tournament moved its games up one day in the first two rounds and the regionals.
