The road to Tampa begins Monday, when support for the 2017 NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament will be unveiled.

It will be difficult for this year's competition to overtake the dramatic denouement that took place a year ago, when Notre Dame beat the state of Mississippi on a drummer to win the title.

Notre Dame is again in the game to win a championship in 2019 alongside the normal distribution of programs including UConn, Mississippi State and Louisville.

The tournament will start on Friday, March 22 and will end at Amalie Arena in Tampa with the National Championship on April 7.

Our Lady can repeat?

The magical race of Notre Dame at the championship a year ago was powered by Arike Ogunbowale, who is one of the few key players to come back and is ready to win a new title.

The top five of Notre Dame are as good as any other nation in the country, and that was reinforced in the final of the ACC tournament when all five starters reaches both numbers.

With so many weapons in attack, Muffet McGraw 's team will be hard to eliminate, but as parity in women' s basketball continues to grow, there are a handful of other programs that can win everything.

As always, UConn will be a major player in the NCAA Tournament, looking for its 12th consecutive participation in the Final Four.

Unlike previous seasons, the Huskies are not the big favorite to win the title, but Geno AuriemmaThe team is very motivated in the competition because it has not made the league game in the last two years.

Baylor and Mississippi State are two other leading candidates. Charlie Creme from Parlay Game.

Oregon and Iowa are two other programs to watch because they both have players who can handle the game.

Sabrina Ionescu, from Oregon, is a triple-double machine who does the average 19.6 points, 7.5 rebounds and 8.1 assists.

Gustave from Iowa is ready to play on the national stage, while she enters the tournament as a National ESPNW Player of the Year with 28 points per game.

The six programs mentioned above are able to win a title. That's why the tournament this season should feel more open than in previous years.

But it's never a bad idea to choose your support based on a title winner experience. Notre Dame also has the star power you need to organize a tournament for six games.
