The Huskies enter as the lone unbeaten team and will be vying for their 12th national championship. Last season, UConn came into the NCAAs as the overwhelming favorite before losing to Mississippi State in the Final Four.

Defending national champion South Carolina and A'ja Wilson await as a possible Elite Eight matchup for UConn in the Albany Regional. The Gamecocks are the two-seed.

UConn, which has been a No. 1 seed every year since 2007, opens up against 16-seed Saint Francis (Pennsylvania) on Saturday morning at home.

While this is the Huskies' 30th consecutive trip to the NCAA Tournament, Nicholls State, Northern Colorado, Mercer and Seattle will be making their first appearances.

Superior native Jessica Lindstrom and Green Bay are seeded seventh and will face 10th seeded Minnesota on Friday in Eugene, Oregon. Port Wing native Megan Gustafson and Iowa are seeded sixth and they'll face 11th seeded Creighton on Saturday in Los Angeles.

This year's Final Four is in Columbus, Ohio, and will take place on March 30. The national championship game is on Sunday, April 1.
