The slots in the NCAA women's basketball tournament bracket have been filled and CT is the first overall seed. Plenty of the usual suspects were seeded at the top of each region.

The Huskies enter as the lone unbeaten team and will be vying for their 12th national championship. Joining the Huskies as No. 1 seeds are Mississippi State, Louisville and Notre Dame. Florida State, Georgia and Duke should also make that corner of the bracket more interesting heading into the regionals weekend. Last year Mississippi State stunned UConn in the national semifinals, ending the Huskies' 111-game win streak and streak of four straight NCAA titles.

"'We felt there was a razor-thin margin between Baylor and Notre Dame, ' said NCAA women's basketball committee chair Rhonda Bennett". The No. 2 seed in the regional is SC, last year's national champion.

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.

Notre Dame head coach Muffet McGraw yells to her players during the second half of an NCAA college basketball game against North Carolina State Sunday, Feb. 25, 2018, in South Bend, Ind. Notre Dame won 86-67. No. 3-seed Ohio State is led by senior guard Kelsey Mitchell, who has been a constant near the top of NCAA scoring lists in her four years in Columbus and looks to climb further up the career points leaderboard while helping the Buckeyes (26-6, 13-3 Big Ten), who will hope to return home for the Final Four, to the NCAA's fifth highest-scoring offense. CT is the first overall seed in the NCAA women's basketball tournament that begins on Saturday.

"I don't think that I was thinking No. 1 seed". Notre Dame has been a top seed the past seven years. 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 potentially could stay out west and play in Spokane, where coach Kelly Graves spent many years as Gonzaga's coach. The other No. 2 seeds had six (Texas and South Carolina) and four (Oregon) losses, making Baylor's record stand out among its counterparts.

Louisville won the Atlantic Coast Conference for the first time this season. The Cardinals open up against Boise State. Purdue, Rutgers, Southern Cal and West Virginia were the first four teams out.

"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.

There were five teams trying to get into the bracket's top spots and in the end Baylor lost out.

Bennett said Oklahoma's strength of schedule, which was second best in the country, was a key to its selection.
