The NCAA Tournament gets underway tonight with a pair of "First Four" games
from Dayton. The opener pits North Carolina A&T, the MEAC Tournament winner,
battling Big South champion Liberty for the right to play Midwest Region top
seed Louisville on Thursday. The nightcap is also from the Midwest Region and
features Saint Mary's and Middle Tennessee, with the winner set to face
Memphis in the second round.

Baylor, Stanford, Connecticut and Notre Dame earned No. 1 seeds for the
women's NCAA basketball tournament for the second straight year. All four
programs reached the Final Four a year ago, with Baylor defeating Notre Dame
in the title game for its second national championship.
