CONFERENCE ENTRIES IN THE ROUND-OF-16 – During the past 12 seasons (2001-12), dating back to the first year of the NCAA 64-team format, the Atlantic Coast Conference has led the way with 53 total entrants in the round--of-16 (4.4 per year) ... next on that list is the Pacific-10/12 with 27 round-of-16 qualifiers since 2001, followed by the BIG EAST (26), BigTen (22), West Coast Conference (19), Big 12 (18) and Southeastern Conference  (12) ... the ACC and Pac-10 have combined to produce 42% of the round-of-16 entrants (80 of 192) during the past 12 seasons ... the top-six conferences on this list – ACC, Pac-10, BIG EAST, Big Ten, WCC and Big 12 – have combined to produce 86% of the teams in the round-of-16 (165 of 192) from 2001-12.

UNPRECEDENTED EARLY EXIT FOR DEFENDING CHAMPS – Notre Dame's 1-0 loss at Illinois on Nov. 13, 2011, marked the first time that the NCAA women's defending champion has been knocked off that early in the tournament (first round; rd-of-64). One year earlier, North Carolina's 3-1 win over James Madison on Nov. 14, 2010, marked the 11th straight season that the defending NCAA champion had advanced to (at least) the round-of-16. In 1999, Florida suffered a 1-0 loss to Hartford in the second round (less than one year after winning the ’98 NCAA title) – the only time that a defending champion had failed to reach at least the round-of-16 (prior to ND this season). When looking at the first 29 teams that have won the NCAA Division I women’s soccer title ('82-’10), 18 of them have returned to the championship game (13 repeated as champion, five were runner-up), two others made it back to the College Cup semifinals, two lost in the quarterfinals and five were knocked out in the round-of-16 (including UNC in 2010).

Prior to UNC's repeat title in 2009, Santa Clara was the most recent NCAA champion that returned to the College Cup’s final weekend (as a semifinalist/finalist) in the next season, doing so in 2002 (Portland lost in the ’03 round-of-16, UNC in the ’04 round-of-16, Notre Dame in the ’05 quarters, UP in the ’06 quarters, UNC in the ’07 rd-of-16, and USC in the '08 rd-of-16).

NCAA Tournament Finishes By Defending Champion
• 13 repeated as champion (North Carolina in 1983, ’84, '87-’94, ’97, 2000, '09)

• 5 runner-up (UNC in ’85 and ’95, Notre Dame in ’96, UNC in ’98, and Santa Clara in '02)

• 2 other semifinalists (George Mason in ’86, Portland in ’01

• 2 quarterfinalists (Notre Dame in ’05, Portland in '06)

• 5 round-of-16 finishers (Portland in ’03, UNC in ’04 and '07, USC in '08; UNC in '10)

• 1 round-of-32 finisher (Florida in '99)

• 1 round-of-64 entrant, failed to advance (Notre Dame in '11)

(18 defending champs have returned to title game, 20 to the College Cup final weekend, 22 to at least the quarterfinals and 27 of the 29 have made it to at least the round-of-16 … 2011 champ Stanford has reached the 2012 second round)

Active Streaks of Reaching the NCAA round-of-16

Lauren Alwine (right) and her  teammates extended Virginia's NCAA round-of-16 streak to seven seasons ('05-'11), with UVa reaching the final-16 again in 2012 ... the Cavaliers were hoping to make the program's second appearance in the NCAA semifinals ('91), but lost 3-0 at Florida State in the 2011 quarterfinals (followed by 2012 round-of-16 loss vs. another ACC team, Duke, 3-1).


Notes: Notre Dame's 7-year streak of reaching the round-of-16 (2004-10) ended in 1-0 loss at Illinois on Nov. 13, 2011 ... one week later (11/18/11), UCLA's run of 12 straight round-of-16 appearances (1999-2010) was snapped in a PK game vs. San Diego (1-1; 2-3 in 6 PK rds) ... the 2010 NCAA round-of-16 included six teams – UNC, UCLA, ND, FSU, UVa and Stanford – with senior classes that advanced to the final-16 all four seasons ... UCLA lost to BYU (0-2) in the 1998 second round (that was the third varsity season for the Bruins) ... ND lost to Michigan in the 2003 NCAA second round (0-1) ...  FSU was edged by BC in PKs during the '04 NCAA first round (0-0/1-3 PKs) ... Virginia lost to Duke in the '04 NCAA second round (0-3) ... Stanford lost to St. Louis in the '05 NCAA first round (0-2).
