Women's NCAA Tournament Bracket Update: Connecticut Easily Advances To Second Round

Unsurprisingly, defending champion and No. 1 seed Connecticut had little trouble in its opening-round Women's NCAA Tournament game. The Huskies jumped ahead of No. 16 seed Hartford early, taking a 40-17 halftime lead and eventually winning, 75-39.

Maya Moore led a host of players in double figures with 12, as the Huskies outrebounded Hartford by a staggering 47-23 margin. The Huskies will next face the winner of Kansas State vs. Purdue on Tuesday.

In other action, two strong ACC schools moved on easily. No. 3 seed Miami topped No. 14 seed Gardner-Webb, 80-62, while No. 4 seed Maryland rolled over No. 13 seed St. Francis (PA), 70-48. Finally, No. 7 seed Louisville had little trouble with No. 10 seed Vanderbilt, winning 81-62.
