The Huskies are 91-9 all-time as a No. 1 seed, including wins in 73 of its last 78 games. Ten of UConn's 11 national championships have come when the squad began play as a No. 1 seed.
UConn head coach Geno Auriemma, who was named The American's Co-Coach of the Year on March 4, has guided the program to all 109 of its NCAA Tournament wins, joining former Tennessee coach Pat Summit (112) as the only members of the 100-win club.
