The NCAA Tournament gets underway tonight with a pair of "First Four" games

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
