UNCASVILLE — When the 64-team bracket for the NCAA Tournament is unveiled Monday, the UConn women may find themselves in a familiar position — seeded atop the Albany (N.Y.) Regional.

It’s where they landed the last time they rolled through both the regular season and American Athletic Conference Tournament.

“If we’re not, who cares?” guard Crystal Dangerfield said. “We’re going to have to play basketball either way, whether in Albany or wherever else those three places are. We’re going to go play basketball. It’s March Madness. That’s all that matters.”

The Huskies know as well as anyone that being a top seed traditionally means chasing a Final Four from the comforts of home — or reasonably close to it. The last time they received anything less than a No. 1 was 2006.

“People think we get breaks. We earn our breaks,” UConn coach Geno Auriemma said Monday following a 66-45 win over UCF in the AAC final. “We win every (darn) game and then we go where we’re supposed to go. That’s what the rule says.”

While the Huskies aren’t expected to get the top overall seed — that’ll likely go to No. 1 Baylor, which handed Auriemma & Co. one of their two losses during the regular season — they’re still a good bet to land in Albany over the other regional sites of Chicago, Greensboro (N.C.) or Portland (Ore.). Roughly 140 miles separate UConn’s campus from New York’s capital city.

“The No. 1 seed in the country goes someplace close — someplace close in Albany or Bridgeport,” Auriemma continued. “When it was Trenton, we went to Trenton. When it was Dayton, we went to Dayton. How far east you gotta go?

“I don’t care if they put it in the freaking Middle East, we’ll go there.”

The Huskies rolled to the Final Four last year as the No. 1 seed out of Albany, just like they did in 2015. In three of the previous six seasons, they did so out of nearby Bridgeport.

Truth be told, though, the Huskies, who are 31-2 and ranked No. 2 in the country, don’t care where the NCAA selection committee decides to place them.

“I don’t think any of us are paying attention to that,” guard Katie Lou Samuelson said. “I think people are going to do what they want to do, judge us the way they want to judge us. That’s not anything we can control.”

ESPN’s latest bracket projection has Baylor (Greensboro), Notre Dame (Chicago) and Mississippi State (Portland) joining UConn as No. 1 seeds. Louisville, which beat UConn 78-69 in January, was slotted as the No. 2 seed in the Huskies’ region.

The Huskies will tip off the first round either March 22 or 23 on campus, with the ultimate goal being a 12th national championship.

They maintained their dominance in the AAC (120-0 all-time) by beating East Carolina, South Florida and UCF on consecutive days. And they did so without Samuelson, who has missed the last four games with a back injury.

“We had a lot of people step up this weekend,” Dangerfield said. “We’re going to need that even when she comes back. It’s just going to make our team that much stronger when she comes in. People can’t revert back to what they were doing when she was in before. They have to keep that going.”
