Irish earn No. 1 seed in the Notre Dame Regional
Notre Dame is the top seed in their own region and is the only No. 1 seed that potentially wouldn’t have to play an opponent on its home floor to advance to the Final Four.
The undefeated Irish will open up against Robert Morris in the first round. They have made the Final Four the past three seasons, advancing to the championship game in 2011 and 2012. Notre Dame swept through the Atlantic Coast conference in its first year in the league, winning the regular season title and the conference tournament.
Baylor is the No. 2 seed, Kentucky is the three seed and Purdue the four in the Notre Dame Regional.
