RALEIGH, N.C. — Maine will take on NC State in the first round of this year's 2019 NCAA women's basketball tournament.
The No. 14 Black Bears and No. 3 Wolfpack are scheduled to square off Saturday, March 23, at 1 p.m. in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Maine will vie to advance past the first round of the Greensboro Region sub-bracket and play the winner of Kentucky-Princeton.
NC State beat Maine 84-46 earlier this season on Dec. 15.
Maine lost to Texas in last year's tournament, 83-54.
The bracket's announcement came after an accidental on-air leak by ESPN hours before its official release as part of a special selection show.
