The NCAA women’s basketball tournament will feature a new format in 2022. The six-team field competition, which is two rounds of play and no championship game, has only been tested once before on the Division III level.
The “ncaa women’s basketball tournament schedule 2022” is the upcoming schedule for the NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament.

- For ESPN.com, Charlie Creme forecasts the women’s NCAA tournament bracket.
The 68-team field for the 2022 NCAA women’s tournament has been reduced to 32. Each of the Seeds ranked No. 1 breezed through the first round. The top four seeds in each area are still alive, but only by a slim margin for teams like the No. 3 seed LSU Tigers, the fourth-seeded Arizona Wildcats, and the Oklahoma Sooners.
That isn’t to say that everything follows the rules. Six seeded in the double digits have advanced to the second round. That’s more than the previous two NCAA tournaments put together.
The Big 12 has had a resurgence this season, as seen by the league’s 6-0 record through two days. The SEC, on the other hand, went 4-4 this season despite being the highest-rated league in the nation. The Kentucky Wildcats and the Ole Miss Lady Rebels were both upset victims in the SEC.
All of this makes reseeding the NCAA women’s tournament a lot of fun, if not a necessity. The Kansas Jayhawks were as good as any team in the Big 12 and deserved to be adjusted. In the first place, the Florida Gulf Coast Eagles should not have been a No. 12 seed. For the second year in a row, the Belmont Bruins have won the first round. The Creighton Bluejays’ offense, meanwhile, drew attention. We can now repair those seeds.
This link will take you to a comprehensive schedule of Sunday’s and Monday’s games on the ESPN family of networks. Check your Women’s Tournament Challenge bracket at this website. Two brackets have remained flawless through the first 32 games.
Seeds ranked No. 1
The South Carolina Gamecocks were seeded first overall and were defeated in the first round. No. 16 Howard wins by a score of 79-21.
Now that the women’s NCAA tournament games have begun, check your bracket. Challenge yourself to a Tournament
Howard had a difficult enough time against South Carolina. The mountain was made even higher by having to face a Gamecocks squad that had been stewing for 11 days over a defeat in their last game. At least part of the reason South Carolina wrapped its arms around this game and squeezed it was because of this. At halftime, Howard had four points. The Gamecocks regained whatever concentration they had lost in the fourth quarter of their SEC tournament title game defeat to Kentucky. Granted, pitting an SEC power against the MEAC champion isn’t the best litmus test for a championship contender, but South Carolina was locked in after only allowing 21 points over 40 minutes, the fewest in a women’s game in NCAA tournament history. That should enough as a takeaway for a team that will be playing in two weekends.
Next up is a matchup with Miami (Sunday, 3 p.m. ET, ABC)
No. 1 seed Stanford Cardinal defeated No. 16 Montana State 78-37 in the first round.
Fran Belibi scored a slam. In the first quarter, the Cardinal threw a shutout. Stanford had a good idea of what the final score would be. It was precisely what you’d expect a No. 1 seed to do against a No. 16 seed: never give them a chance. No one on Stanford’s roster had a big game — Hannah Jump led the way with 15 points — and Haley Jones only shot 2-of-9 from the field, but the cooperation (20 assists on 29 field goals) and execution were dominant. Twelve different Cardinals scored, and they outrebounded their opponents 56-33. Cameron Brink led the team in rebounding with 11 to go along with his 11 points. Stanford skewed a statistical category in his favor. The Cardinals looked every bit as terrific as their winning run of 21 games implies.
Next up is a matchup with Kansas (Sunday, 9 p.m. ET, ESPN)
No. 1 seed NC State Wolfpack defeated No. 16 Longwood 96-68 in the first round.
Known for being a sluggish starter Even against No. 16 seed Longwood, NC State took a while to get rolling, leading by just four points halfway through the second quarter. The Wolfpack then went on a 17-0 run, capped by a pair of Diamond Johnson 3-pointers. After there, it was pretty much cruise control for NC State, which has now advanced to the second round in four straight tournaments after spending ten years without winning an NCAA tournament game.
Next up: Kansas State (Monday, 4 p.m. ET, ESPN)
No. 1 seed Louisville Cardinals defeated No. 16 Albany 83-51 in the first round.
The Cardinals hadn’t played in two weeks after losing in the ACC tournament quarterfinals. Rust? Not even a smidgeon. Against the physically weaker Great Danes, Louisville made shots early and frequently. Coach Jeff Walz didn’t have to play anybody for more than 25 minutes since Louisville scored 52.4 percent from the floor and had 44 points in the paint. Going into the second round, the Cardinals may be the most rested club in the competition. The greatest indicator of all is Hailey Van Lith’s continued demonstration that her troubles from the first half of the season are behind her. In her previous nine games, she has averaging 17.6 points per game, including 20 points on 8-for-15 shooting versus Albany.
Next up is a matchup with Gonzaga (Sunday, 7 p.m. ET, ESPN)
Seeds No. 2
The Baylor Bears defeated No. 15 Hawai’i 89-49 in the first round.
Baylor couldn’t seem to shake the Big West champion throughout the first 20 minutes. The third quarter followed. The defense stepped up a notch, and the Bears’ physical dominance took control. Baylor had a 34-8 quarter and a 35-point advantage after making 12 field goals, six of which were from point-blank range. In the third, Hawai’i shot 3-of-20 from the field. Coach Nicki Collen got her first NCAA tournament win, and NaLyssa Smith’s usual brilliance was on display with 21 points and 14 rebounds. Jordan Lewis’ 7-for-8 shooting and 23 points was a good sign.
Next up is a matchup with South Dakota (Sunday, 6 p.m. ET, ESPN2)
The UConn Huskies defeated No. 15 Mercer 83-38 in the first round.
It was UConn basketball the way we expect it to be played against a weaker opponent: deliberate and dominating. The Huskies never gave Mercer a chance to breathe, particularly in the second half, when the Bears only managed to score 15 points (and none in the third quarter). The return of Paige Bueckers (12 points, five assists) and the Huskies’ complete rotation of quality players being healthy has gotten a lot of attention, but defense is what keeps them going. Only one of UConn’s previous nine opponents has scored more than 50 points (Marquette with 51), while six have scored less than 40. Mercer finished with a 23.2 percent field-goal percentage and 18 turnovers. That’s why it’s just OK that Christyn Williams led the Huskies in scoring with 13 points.
Next up is a matchup with UCF (Monday, 9 p.m. ET, ESPN)
The Texas Longhorns defeated No. 15 Fairfield in the first round, 70-52.
The Longhorns’ success is based on a single formula, which starts and concludes with their defense. The Stags remained competitive in the second half, even outscoring Texas, but 22 mistakes and a 10-rebound disadvantage were too much to overcome. The Longhorns were able to overcome 43.1 percent shooting and 10 missed free throws thanks to those additional possessions. Freshman Aaliyah Moore’s 18 points and 10 rebounds were a major lift. All season, she didn’t have a double-double. The 11 assists by Rori Harmon were also crucial.
Next up is a matchup with Utah (Sunday, 5 p.m. ET, ESPN)
Iowa Hawkeyes defeated No. 15 Illinois State 98-58 in the first round of the NCAA tournament.
Iowa was able to score 98 points despite a poor start. The Hawkeyes just did what they do best, which is to put the ball in the hoop at a high rate. The team with the highest field goal percentage in the country made 60% of its shots. Iowa also hit 21 of 22 free throws, attempting to become the first team since UConn in 2016 to lead the nation in both categories for an entire season. Caitlin Clark’s stat line of 27 points, 10 rebounds, and 6 rebounds would be spectacular if she wasn’t making those kinds of games so routine. Monika Czinano didn’t miss a shot (6-for-6 from the field and 6-for-6 from the line), and Caitlin Clark’s stat line of 27 points, 10 rebounds, and 6 rebounds would be spectacular if she wasn’t making those kinds of games so routine.
Next up: Creighton (Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, ABC)
Seeds No. 3
Hoosiers from Indiana No. 3 (Original Seed) No. 14 Charlotte was defeated 85-51 in the first round.
Indiana’s stuttering at the conclusion of the regular season feels like a distant memory today. Before a run to the Big Ten tournament championship, the Hoosiers had lost three in a row and four of their previous five games. After the 49ers’ decisive and comprehensive dominance on Saturday, it’s official. Only one Hoosier missed at least half of her shots (Nicole Cardano-Hillary was 3-of-8) and they never allowed Charlotte think this was going to be a contest. Mackenzie Holmes returned to the lineup for the ninth game after recuperating from a knee injury. Her greatest performance in that period was 19 points and eight rebounds.
Next up: vs. Princeton (Monday, 8 p.m. ET, ESPNU)
Original Seed: No. 3 Michigan Wolverines Defeated No. 14 American in the first round, 74-39.
Toward the conclusion of the season, Michigan’s defense has been surprisingly uneven. Perhaps the Wolverines needed the extended rest. After losing in the Big Ten quarterfinals more than two weeks ago, they used all of their hoarded energy to suffocate the Eagles. The offense took a few minutes to get going as Michigan hosted its first NCAA tournament game, but the defense was ready to play right away. American scored 13 points in the first half, and the Eagles’ total of 39 points was the fewest the Wolverines had allowed all season. Naz Hillmon’s double-double of 24 points and 11 rebounds was her 15th of the season.
Next up: Villanova (Monday, 6 p.m. ET, ESPNU)
The LSU Tigers defeated No. 14 Jackson State 83-77 in the first round.
Kim Mulkey may have a restless night on Saturday. When Jackson State, which entered the NCAA tournament with the nation’s best 21-game winning streak, changed into a near giant killer, her Tigers led by 17 and seemed to be on their way to an easy first-round victory. The Lady Tigers, who had played confidently all day and never surrendered to LSU, went on a 24-5 run to seize the lead, and they were still up by 2:44. LSU concluded on a 10-3 run, sparked by two baskets by Khayla Pointer. Only then could the Tigers, who were greatly favored, take a big breath. Pointer, who is crucial to the Tigers’ success in this competition, ended with 25 points.
Next up is a matchup with Ohio State (Monday, 8 p.m. ET, ESPN2)
The Iowa State Cyclones were seeded third and defeated No. 14 UT Arlington 78-71 in the first round.
There are no top-four seeds in this game, and none of the four Big 12 teams are playing. The Cyclones had it harder than Friday. Despite Ashley Joens’ 36 points and 15 rebounds, Iowa State needed a fourth-quarter comeback and some clutch plays from Emily Ryan to hold off UT Arlington. The Lady Mavs surpassed their seed, and the Cyclones didn’t even play terribly. With 19 points, Starr Jacobs, the Sun Belt Player of the Year, who began her career at Houston before transferring to a junior college for two years, demonstrated that she is a Power 5 player. Joens, Ryan, and Lexi Donarski all played the whole 40 minutes, which will be interesting to see in what could be a physically demanding game against Georgia.
Next up is a matchup with Georgia (Sunday, 8 p.m. ET, ESPN2)
Seeds No. 4
Original Seed: No. 4 Maryland Terrapins Defeated No. 13 Delaware 102-71 in the first round.
It’s hard to think that a Maryland team that led the country in scoring last season and finished sixth this year could have a three-game run when it only scored 59 points on average. That’s exactly what transpired in the Terps’ last three games. Coach Brenda Frese must have been concerned, but the Maryland squad she is more familiar with returned on Friday. The Terps’ five starters all scored in double digits, and they shot almost 60% from the field. Ashley Owusu, who had been plagued by injury and ineffectiveness for most of February, returned to form with 24 points on 10-of-14 shooting and six assists.
Next up is a matchup against the Florida Gulf Coast (Sunday, 3 p.m. ET, ESPN)
Original Seed: No. 4 Tennessee Lady Volunteers Defeated No. 13 Buffalo in the first round, 80-67.
Tennessee capitalized on its assets, and it paid out handsomely. The Bulls were able to score against the Lady Vols, but they were unable to rebound. That was the distinction. The Lady Vols, who were fourth in the nation in rebounding, continued to pound the glass. Tennessee’s 55-38 rebounding edge resulted in a 21-6 differential in made free throws. Tamari Key and Alexus Dye combined for a total of 34 points and 11 rebounds. Despite not having top scorer Jordan Horston returning and continuing to have turnover troubles with another 19 on Saturday, the Lady Vols will keep their No. 4 seed. In terms of total turnovers, they are 325th in the nation.
Next up is a matchup with Belmont (Monday, 7 p.m. ET, ESPN)
Original Seed: No. 4 Arizona Wildcats Defeated No. 13 UNLV 72-67 in the first round.
The final result failed to reflect the tension felt in Tucson. One of the few top-four seeds on the verge of losing in the first round, the Wildcats pulled away late in the fourth quarter. UNLV, a significant underdog, led for most of the game and had a lead as late as the eighth minute. Shaina Pellington’s 30 points were the difference in Arizona’s first NCAA tournament home game. Cate Reese returned to the Wildcats after missing four games with a shoulder injury at the conclusion of the season. Her 16 points were also significant in the team’s victory against UNLV, which outshot and outrebounded Arizona.
Next up is a matchup with North Carolina (Monday, 10 p.m. ET, ESPN2)
Oklahoma Sooners (Oklahoma Sooners) Original Seed: No. 4 Defeated No. 13 IUPUI 76-72 in the first round.
Interior defense has been the Sooners’ main issue all season, so IUPUI’s Macee Williams, who shoots 65 percent from the field and averages 18.7 points per game, provided a concern. Williams was good, but Oklahoma held her in control for the most part. Williams ended with 15 points, falling short of Oklahoma’s Madi Williams’ 21 points. For the first time in five years, she and Taylor Robertson guided the Sooners into the second round. The second-round matchup between Oklahoma and Notre Dame promises to be an explosive shootout.
Next up: Notre Dame (Monday, 6 p.m. ET, ESPN2)
Seeds No. 5
Original seed: No. 5 Notre Dame Fighting Irish First round: Defeated No. 12 UMass 89-78
Despite Olivia Miles’ triple-double, 58.7% shooting, and a 38-22 rebounding lead, Notre Dame couldn’t shake UMass until the final minutes. That’s because the Minutewomen’s offense was almost as strong as the Irish’s, with to Atlantic 10 Player of the Year Sam Breen’s 31 points. Miles had 12 points, 10 rebounds, and 11 assists for the Irish, who have now had two NCAA tournament triple-doubles (the other being by Skylar Diggins in 2012), while Dara Mabrey nailed five 3-pointers for a squad that continues to depend on their offense.
Next up is a matchup with Oklahoma (Monday, 6 p.m. ET, ESPN2)
Tar Heels of North Carolina Original seed: No. 5; first round: No. 12; second round: No. 5; third round: No. 5; fourth round: No. 12; fifth round: No 79-66 Stephen F. Austin
SFA, with its up-tempo, pressing style, would be difficult to play against, according to North Carolina coach Courtney Banghart. For the first three quarters, it seemed like another double-digit seed would pull off an upset. The fourth quarter followed. North Carolina defeated the Ladyjacks 25-10 in the last ten minutes, with Deja Kelly scoring nine of her 28 points. The Ladyjacks were eliminated from the first round for the first time since 2015. This was the second year in a row that SFA competed in the NCAA tournament with an ACC team. Last March, the Ladyjacks brought Georgia Tech to overtime.
Next up is a matchup with Arizona (Monday, 10 p.m. ET, ESPN2)
The Ohio State Buckeyes defeated No. 11 Missouri State 63-56 in the first round.
The Buckeyes beat Missouri State in a game in which they were outrebounded 51-33 and hit just 5 of 20 3-point attempts. The difference in a game that was otherwise well controlled by the Bears was a 23-6 surge at the close of the first half, propelled by a relentless full-court press, and a 13-6 finish. Missouri State would have became the first team to win a second game in the First Four if it had done a better job of preserving the ball. Ohio State scored 25 points off of 22 turnovers. Jacy Sheldon’s five thefts were a key part of it, and she used them to score a few layups on route to a game-high 25 points.
Next up is a matchup with LSU (Monday, 8 p.m. ET, ESPN2)
The Georgia Lady Bulldogs defeated No. 11 Dayton in the first round, 70-54.
In the First Four game against DePaul, Dayton hit 17 3-pointers. Georgia only allowed the Flyers to make 6-of-18 attempts from beyond the arc. The Lady Dogs’ defense was outstanding. Georgia didn’t accomplish anything exceptional on offensively, delivering exactly what was anticipated. That was almost enough to keep the game under control from start to finish. In crucial circumstances, Joni Taylor resorted to her veterans. Georgia won its third NCAA tournament game under Taylor, with Que Morrison and Jenna Staiti combining for 35 points and 16 rebounds. She hasn’t progressed beyond the second round yet.
Next up is a matchup with Iowa State (Sunday, 8 p.m. ET, ESPN2)
Seeds No. 6
The Utah Utes defeated No. 10 Arkansas 92-69 in the first round.
For the first time since 2009, the Utes won an NCAA tournament game, and they did so emphatically. Utah produced its most spectacular and effective offensive game of the season, given the caliber of the opponent and the gravity of the situation. The Razorbacks, who usually depend on their own shooting, had no response for the youthful Utes’ deep shooting ability. Utah was never truly challenged as sophomore Kennady McQueen and freshman Gianna Kneepkens combined to hit 9 of 12 3-pointers.
Next up is a matchup with Texas (Sunday, 5 p.m. ET, ESPN)
UCF Knights defeated No. 10 Florida 69-52 in the first round of the NCAA tournament.
It may seem funny, but Florida’s defense in the SEC is nothing like the Knights’. Without injured Kiki Smith, the Gators only shot 30% from the field. Florida lacked their main scorer and playmaker to break through a defense that allows just 47.5 points per game, the lowest in the country. And losing Faith Dut, the team’s center, late in the first half was too much to overcome. With the help of Brittney Smith’s 26 points, UCF earned its first victory against the Gators (it had been 0-26 earlier) and first NCAA tournament win in school history.
Next up is a matchup with UConn (Monday, 9 p.m. ET, ESPN)
No. 8 seed Kansas Jayhawks defeated No. 9 Georgia Tech 77-58 in the first round.
The Yellow Jackets’ petrol tank was empty. Kansas took full advantage of the situation, delivering Georgia Tech its worst defeat of the season. Georgia Tech finished the season with a six- or seven-player rotation for the most of the second half, losing five of its final seven games. Meanwhile, the Jayhawks defeated the Yellow Jackets 64-36 in the last three quarters to win their first NCAA tournament game since 2013. The Jayhawks accomplished it with defense and offensive balance, much as they have all year. Four Kanas players scored in double digits, led by Holly Kersgieter’s 19 points. Georgia Tech shot 38.7% from the field.
Next up is a matchup against Stanford (Sunday, 9 p.m. ET, ESPN)
The Miami Hurricanes defeated No. 9 South Florida 78-66 in the first round.
Kate Meier is a likely chance to play a second game if her Hurricanes make it to the NCAA tournament. Under the 17-year head coach, Miami is presently 6-3 in first-round games. The Hurricanes can win in a variety of ways. Leading scorer Kelsey Marshall had just 10 field goal attempts and 12 points against USF, while Miami’s bench scored 29 points. Miami won all three games in the ACC tournament by overcoming second-half deficits. On Friday, it was all about getting out of the gate quickly. After 10 minutes, Miami had a 24-11 advantage and easily countered every South Florida surge for the remainder of the game.
Next up is a matchup with South Carolina (Sunday, 3 p.m. ET, ABC)
Seeds No. 7
Gonzaga Bulldogs Defeated No. 8 Nebraska 68-55 in the first round of the NCAA tournament.
The Bulldogs have discovered the ideal time of year to be at their best. Gonzaga beat BYU in the WCC tournament final game after being blasted out twice by the Cougars earlier in the season. After Gonzaga scored the opening six points of the second half, the Bulldogs took it to another level against the Cornhuskers, who were never able to break through. Kayleigh Truong not only scored 20 points, but she also managed to keep the game under control from her point guard position.
Next up is a matchup with Louisville (Sunday, 7 p.m. ET, ESPN)
The Florida Gulf Coast Eagles were seeded 12th and defeated No. 5 Virginia Tech 84-81 in the first round.
A No. 7 seed would have put the Eagles closer to where they should have been in the first place. Virginia Tech was given a bad break by the committee, as they were forced to play a team in the first round that was well overqualified for a 12-seed. And that’s how the game ended. FGCU has the best 3-point shooting in the nation and made 15 against the Hokies. The Eagles knew they’d have no answer for FCGU’s Elizabeth Kitley, who scored a career-high 42 points, but they were able to offset that by committing just three turnovers. Each side played to their strengths, with the Eagles coming out on top. When the offense goes down and the 3-pointer is unavailable, having an all-around player like Kierstan Bell to fall back on is also beneficial. Bell, who had a team-high 22 points, converted a fantastic individual move into a layup to give FGCU a 76-74 lead, which they never lost.
Next up is a matchup with Maryland (Sunday, 3 p.m. ET, ESPN)
Creighton Bluejays Defeated No. 7 Colorado 84-74 in the first round.
According to Her Hoops Stats, Colorado has a top-30 ranked defense. It was sliced apart by the Bluejays’ motion attack. The only time the Buffs have allowed anything close to Creighton’s 84 points this season was when Oregon scored 86, but it took the Ducks double OT to get there. That’s not all that shocking. Jim Flanery’s teams execute attacks that produce excellent shots, and he brings in players who can make them, such as Emma Ronsiek (14.8 points per game) and Lauren Jensen (43.7 percent on 3-pointers). In terms of points per 100 possessions, the Bluejays rank eighth in the country. In that area, Iowa, their next opponent (and where Jensen started her career), leads the nation.
Next up is a matchup with Iowa (Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, ABC)
South Dakota Coyotes Original Seed: No. 10 First Round: 75-61 loss to No. 7 Ole Miss
Seniors Chloe Lamb, Hannah Sjerven, and Liv Korngable chose to return for their additional year to try for the program’s first NCAA tournament victory. The mission has been completed. The Coyotes led from start to finish, slicing apart the Rebels’ defense with 55.8% shooting. Sjerven and Lamb each scored 20 points. A defense that ranked 10th in the nation in points allowed per game was just as good against SEC opponents as it was against Summit League opponents. Shakira Austin of Ole Miss was a non-factor according to coach Dawn Plitzuweit’s approach. Despite her size advantage, Austin only scored nine points on three of sixteen shooting.
Next up is a matchup with Baylor (Sunday, 6 p.m. ET, ESPN2)
Seeds No. 8
Kansas State Wildcats Defeated No. 8 Washington State in the first round, 50-40.
In the first half, Kansas State standout center Ayoka Lee had three touches and the Wildcats’ offense was struggling with just 17 points. A few tweaks were done. In the second half, the ball found Lee a lot more. Lee had 15 rebounds and 20 points, half of which came from the free throw line, as the Wildcats went to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2017. This one will not be saved by either side. Kansas State was the most accurate of the two, shooting 26.7 percent from the field. Despite all of the shocks, Kansas State remains a No. 8 seed due to their issues.
Next up is a matchup against NC State (Monday, 4 p.m. ET, ESPN)
Princeton Tigers (No. 11 seed) lost 69-62 to No. 6 Kentucky in the first round.
Kentucky came in hot, having won ten games in a row. It was hotter in Princeton. After defeating the Wildcats, the Tigers have won 18 straight games. Although the seeding suggest an upset, Princeton was the superior team for the whole of the game. Abby Meyers’ 29 points in the NCAA tournament were the highest by an Ivy League player since 2000. Despite committing 19 turnovers, the Tigers ran their offense perfectly at all times and never allowed the Wildcats get closer than a single possession in the fourth quarter. Rhyne Howard’s Kentucky career finishes with 17 points on 4 of 14 shooting.
Next up is a matchup with Indiana (Monday, 8 p.m. ET, ESPNU)
The Villanova Wildcats were seeded 11th and defeated No. 6 BYU 61-57 in the first round.
Nothing about the Wildcats will wow you. They are just hard to play against. Whether it was under Harry Perretta for 42 years or Denise Dillon now, Villanova runs a disciplined offense, makes open shots and doesn’t make many mistakes. BYU became the latest casualty of that Saturday and was the first of two Seeds No. 6 to fall. Maddy Siegrist (Big East) got the better of Shaylee Gonzales (WCC) in a matchup of conference players of the year with 25 points. The Wildcats’ defense also rose to the occasion and held Gonzales to just eight points on 3-of-14 shooting.
Next up is a matchup with Michigan (Monday, 6 p.m. ET, ESPNU)
Original Seed: No. 12 Belmont Bruins Defeated No. 5 Oregon 73-70 in 2OT in the first round.
This season, the Bruins faced Arkansas, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Ole Miss, and UCF. They also won a first-round game as a No. 12 seed in March. They were as prepared as any mid-major could be for the NCAA tournament, and it paid off once again. Belmont defeated Gonzaga last season. It’s possible that this time was more spectacular. The Ducks had made it to at least the Sweet 16 four times in a row. Despite having no answer for Nyara Sabally (31 points, 12 rebounds) and giving up 40 points in the paint, the Bruins came out on top. Twelve 3-pointers aided the cause. Tuti Jones ended with 22 points after making all four of her long pointers.
Next up is a matchup with Tennessee (Monday, 7 p.m. ET, ESPN)
