The Notre Dame women's basketball team (31-1) will begin its latest quest for an NCAA national championship by first hosting 16th-seeded North Carolina A&T.

While the Lady Irish are unquestionably the favorites to make it out of the Lexington Regional, it won't be an easy road. Maryland, Kentucky, Stanford, and Miami are only a few of the potential pitfalls that stand in the way.
