The NCAA has announced the women's basketball bracket for 2015. UConn (32-1), Notre Dame (31-2), South Carolina (30-2) and Maryland (30-2) have all earned number 1 seeds.

The NCAA also says five schools are making their first appearances in the tournament this century: New Mexico State, Ohio, Seton Hall, Tennessee State and Northwestern.

American, St. Francis Brooklyn and Savannah State are all making their first-ever NCAA tournament appearances.

Tennessee is making its 34th straight appearance in the NCAA tournament. And AP reports Princeton is only the 15th team to enter the NCAA tournament undefeated.

Defending champions UConn are the team to beat. USA Today says UConn leads the nation in scoring offense, scoring defense , scoring margin, blocked shots, field goal percentage, field goal percentage defense, three-point percentage and more. Should they win this year, UConn coach Geno Auriemma would tie with UCLA men's coach John Wooden for most all-time titles, with 10.

The national championship game will be played April 7 in Tampa, Florida. You can see the NCAA's bracket here.
