UConn to host first and second rounds in NCAA tournament

The NCAA announced sites for the subregionals and regionals in the 2014 women's basketball tournament.

Gampel Pavilion will host the first and second rounds on either Mar. 22 and 24 or Mar. 23 and 25. This would be the 23rd time in the last 25 years that the Huskies would open play in the NCAA tournament in the state of Connecticut with 20 of those games being played in Storrs.

UConn will hit the road for the regionals as the sites are Louisville, Nebraska, Notre Dame and Stanford with host schools able to play on their home courts for the subregionals and regionals. What that means is that UConn could have to play Notre Dame, Louisville or Stanford on their home court en route to making a record seventh straight trip to the Final Four. While there's a lot of basketball to play between now and when the NCAA pairings are released, it would seem to me that the Nebraska regional would be a natural landing spot for UConn.

UConn chose not to submit a bid for the regionals and Webster Bank Arena is hosting a Division I men's hockey regional.
