It's mostly been all chalk in the first round 2011 Women's NCAA Tournament. Almost every key top seed has advanced comfortably to the second round, with No. 2 seeds Xavier and Texas A&M joining that group Sunday afternoon with easy first-round wins of their own.

The Musketeers defeated No. 15 seed South Dakota State, 72-56, and will next play No. 7 seed Louisville after the Cardinals defeated Vanderbilt. Texas A&M, meanwhile, rolled over McNeese State, 87-47, and will next play the winner of Sunday night's game between No. 7 Rutgers and No. 10 Louisiana Tech.
