Stanford, which opens against UC Davis, could also face a team for the fourth time this season — UCLA. The Cardinal swept the No. 3 seed in Spokane three times, but the Bruins had a late lead in the Pac-10 title game on Saturday.

"I didn't know UCLA would be in our bracket. Honestly, I'm shocked about that," VanDerveer said. "We didn't play against UCLA the way we should have. A lot of the mistakes we made are correctable."

UC Davis is one of six teams making its first NCAA tournament appearance.

Tennessee is making its 30th trip to the tournament. The Lady Vols have been in every NCAA tournament since it began in 1982. They advanced to the regional semifinals last season before falling to Baylor. Two years ago Tennessee lost in the opening round for the first time ever.

This time the Lady Vols will open up against No. 16 Stetson, which needed a 55-footer at the buzzer to advance to the Atlantic Sun tournament championship game.

Summitt was focused on the team's first-round opponent and not worried about a potential showdown with UConn in the Final Four.

"Well, we're not even going to think about that," she said. "It's all about one game at a time and survive and advance."
