No. 1 Overall Seed UConn Women's Basketball Will Host No. 16 Robert Morris on Saturday

There's no surprise who the No. 1 overall seed was in the women's bracket.

The 2016 NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament brackets were announced Monday evening on ESPN, and they made us wait until the bitter end to find out who the Huskies were going to play. Everyone knew they were going to be the No. 1 overall seed, so it was the only drama that existed.

At about 7:40 p.m., the announcement of the Bridgeport Regional revealed that the Robert Morris Colonials would be UConn's first victim, with tip-off at 11 a.m. this Saturday on ESPN2. Robert Morris (20-12) secured its tournament berth by winning the NEC Tournament final over Sacred Heart.

If the UConn women can make it past Robert Morris, they would get the winner of the 8-9 matchup between Seton Hall and Duquesne on Monday. The time of that game has not been determined yet.

The USF Bulls were the only other member of the AAC to get into the tournament. The Bulls, who were given the No. 6 seed in the Bridgeport Regional, will take on the No. 11 seed Colorado State Rams in Los Angeles, CA on Saturday at 9 p.m.
