W BBall: Irish Earn #1 Tourney Seed

Notre Dame Women's Basketball | Mar. 17, 2014 | Notre Dame Athletics

NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- For the 19th consecutive season, and the 21st time in school history, Notre Dame has earned a berth in the NCAA Women's Basketball Championship, having received the Atlantic Coast Conference's automatic berth into this year's field by winning its first ACC Championship title last week. The Fighting Irish are the No. 1 seed in the NCAA Championship's Notre Dame Region -- the third consecutive year and fourth time in program history they have earned a top seed -- and will play 16th-seeded Robert Morris (the Northeast Conference champion) at 1:30 p.m. (ET) Saturday at Savage Arena in Toledo, Ohio.

The game will be televised by ESPN as part of that network's "whiparound coverage," while viewers in the South Bend market, as well as those watching on the Internet through the WatchESPN platform, will see the game in its entirety. However, the majority of ESPN viewers nationwide will be shuttled between all four games in that time slot, including the Notre Dame-Robert Morris contest. All Fighting Irish games also can be heard live on the radio in the Michiana area on Pulse FM (96.9/92.1), as well as worldwide on the Internet through the official Notre Dame athletics multimedia platform, WatchND (watchnd.tv), with veteran broadcaster Bob Nagle on the call.
