No. 1 seed Connecticut (29-1, 16-0)

The Huskies, the two-time defending national champion, are 48-0 in regular season conference play the past three years and have won 19 titles in 23 years. They have the best player (Maya Moore), the best coach (Geno Auriemma), the best tradition and the home court. They have won 17 straight since losing at Stanford on Dec. 30, their only loss in 108 games. Did you know? Moore and Diana Taurasi share the same birthday: June 11
