NEW YORK – UConn’s run through the season so far and is six wins away from an unprecedented fourth straight national championship.

The Huskies are expected to be the top overall seed in the women’s NCAA Tournament that will be announced Monday night.

UConn (32-0) potentially won’t have to leave the state until the Final Four which is in Indianapolis this year on April 3 and 5.

If UConn can win six more games, coach Geno Auriemma would pass vaunted UCLA men’s basketball coach John Wooden for the most all-time with 11 championships.

Expected to join the Huskies as the other No. 1 seeds are South Carolina, Notre Dame and Baylor. The Huskies have already beaten the Gamecocks and Irish this season.

The top four seeds in each region will host the opening two rounds.
