Notre Dame women head to Toledo for NCAA opener

SOUTH BEND – Notre Dame was a lock to get one of the No. 1 seeds in the NCAA women's tournament after going 32-0 and winning the ACC regular-season and tournament titles.

And the Irish were guaranteed to play at home in the second weekend as they are one of the four host teams when regional play begins.

But that didn't take all of the drama out of Monday night.

Notre Dame was named the top seed in the South Bend Region, and it will open play against No. 16 seed Robert Morris on Saturday at Toledo.

It was exactly what the Irish wanted to hear when the tournament seeding was revealed as they wanted to avoid playing a potential second-round game on the home floors of either LSU or Iowa State.
