NOTRE DAME, Ind. - Onward to the Chicago Regional for the No. 1 seeded Notre Dame women's basketball team as the Fighting Irish (32-3) look to book their second straight trip to the Final Four and ninth overall.

Notre Dame begins its 26th NCAA Championship in 2019 and 24th in a row. Their 24 straight appearances are the fourth longest active streak in the country and fifth best all-time.

The Irish are 64-23 all-time in the NCAA Tournament. Their 64 wins rank fifth all-time. Notre Dame joins Louisiana Tech, Baylor, USC and Stanford with two NCAA titles behind only UConn (11) and Tennessee (8).
