    INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - The University of Connecticut has been selected as one of the 16 first and second-round sites for the 2014 NCAA Division I Women's Basketball Championship, which, along with the NCAA Regional sites, were announced today by the NCAA Division I Women's Basketball Committee.

    The selection will mark the 19th time that UConn has hosted NCAA Tournament games at Gampel Pavilion, with the most recent coming in 2013. The Huskies boast an all-time record of 32-2 in NCAA Tournament games played at Gampel.

    Other cities chosen to host first- and second-round games in 2014 include Ames, Iowa; Baton Rouge, La.; Chapel Hill, N.C.; College Park, Md.; College Station, Texas; Durham, N.C.; Iowa City, Iowa; Knoxville, Tenn.; Lexington, Ky.; Los Angeles, Calif.; Seattle, Wash.; Toledo, Ohio; University Park, Penn.; Waco, Texas; and West Lafayette, Ind. The four selected regional sites are Lincoln, Neb.; Louisville, Ky.; Notre Dame, Ind., and Stanford, Calif. 

     "The committee continues to look for ways to create a better in-arena atmosphere for our student-athletes, improve attendance and enhance the broadcast look of the games," Carolayne Henry said, chair of the Division I Women's Basketball Committee and senior associate commissioner/senior woman administrator at the Mountain West Conference. "The 2014 championship presented us with a unique opportunity for our institutional hosts during the regional rounds of play. The committee is continuing to look at other host and format options that make sense for our championship going into 2015 and beyond."

    The following first- and second-round sites will host games either Saturday, March 22, and Monday, March 24 or Sunday, March 23, and Tuesday, March 25, 2014 (dates to be determined):
