USC enters NCAA regional action as the nation’s overall No. 1 seed. The Pac-10 champs will headline the West Regional field, UCLA is the top team in the Central Region in Notre Dame, Ind., and Alabama will be the team to beat in the East at LPGA International in Daytona Beach, Fla. 

Fourth-ranked Purdue returns all five starters from last year’s NCAA Championship team. The Boilermakers will try to advance to this year’s championship through the East Region. 

Morehead State, Butler, Texas-El Paso, Texas-San Antonio and Alabama State will play in the postseason for the first time in school history as each received a bid by winning the automatic qualifying spot out of their respective conferences. North Texas also will play in the postseason for the first time in school history after receiving an at-large bid.

Eight teams from each region will advance to the NCAA Championship May 18-21 at Texas A&M’s Traditions Club in College Station, Texas.
