The field of 64 for the 2011 Women's NCAA Tournament is set after Monday night's selection show, which means it is time to download your Women's Tournament Printable Bracket (PDF). Connecticut, Tennessee, Baylor and Stanford the four No. 1 seeds. The Huskies will begin pursuit of their third consecutive title this weekend, when the first round tips off on Saturday, Mar. 19. The Final Four is set for April 3-5, at the Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
UConn finished the regular season ranked No. 1 in both polls with a 32-1 record, with that lone loss coming at the hands of Stanford, which finished No. 2 in the polls (29-2 overall record). So please excuse our UConn blog, appropriately titled The UConn Blog, for not being too surprised with the seedings.
Like the men yesterday, today the UConn women's basketball team learned their path to an NCAA title. Unlike the men the women have a No. 1 seed -- the overall No. 1 seed in fact. The Huskies, who went 32-1 and won the Big East regular season and tournament championships are the top seed in the Philadelphia regional. They'll face No. 16 seed Hartford in Storrs on Sunday and then will play the winner of Kansas St. (No. 8) and Purdue (No. 9).
