STORRS, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut is looking at this NCAA tournament as a chance for redemption.

The third-ranked Huskies, who lost both the Big East regular-season and tournament titles to Notre Dame, received the top seed in the Bridgeport Regional and will face 16th-seeded Idaho (17-15) from the Western Athletic Conference in the first round on Saturday.

The Huskies (29-4) are looking for a record sixth consecutive trip to the Final Four and an eighth national title.

They will host the first two rounds at Gampel Pavilion, and are looking at a second-round matchup with either St. Joseph’s or Vanderbilt. Should the Huskies advance, they would play the next two rounds about 80 miles from campus in Bridgeport.

The second seed in the Bridgeport Regional is Kentucky, a team UConn beat in last year’s regional final.
