The UMBC women's basketball team will not need the assistance of MapQuest to find its way to its first NCAA Division I tournament game.

"We know how to get there," coach Phil Stern said after the tournament committee last night paired the 16th-seeded Retrievers with No. 1 Connecticut in a first-round game in Hartford, Conn., on Sunday. "We've played at Hartford before. We just haven't played in front of 16,000 people."

UMBC VS. Connecticut Fresno Regional first round, Hartford (Conn.) Civic Center, Sunday, approximately 9:30 p.m., TV TBA
