Tennessee is the No. 1 seed in the Louisville Regional.
The Lady Vols, who are the only team to have played in every NCAA tournament, will open up against Northwestern State on Saturday. Tennessee is trying to end a five-year drought of not making it to the Final Four — the longest such streak in school history.
The Lady Vols, who won the SEC tournament, won't have an easy path to the Final Four. West Virginia is the second seed. Host Louisville is the three seed and Maryland is the four.
The Cardinals knocked off top-seed Baylor in the regional semifinals last season before beating Tennessee to earn a trip to the Final Four. Now they could get a similar opportunity against the Lady Vols on their home floor.
