NCAA Women's bracket results 2013: First round finished up on Sunday


The first round of the Women's NCAA Tournament lacked the upsets of its male counterparts as the second round is set for Monday.

The opening round of the Women's NCAA Tournament was a whole lot less chaotic than the men's side, as most of the top teams advanced to the second round, which starts on Monday.

No. 1 Baylor 82, No. 16 Prairie View A&M 40
Brittney Griner had 33 points, 10 rebounds and six blocks as she virtually beat her opponents by herself.

No. 1 Stanford 72, No. 16 Tulsa 56
Chiney Ogwumike led the Cardinal with 29 points and eight rebounds as Stanford looks to make its sixth straight Final Four appearance.

No. 1 Notre Dame 97, No. 16 UT Martin 64
The Fighting Irish had no trouble in the first round, holding off Heather Butler and her season-high 37 points in the win.

No. 2 Duke 67, No. 15 Hampton 51
The Blue Devils won their 17th straight tournament game at home, but needed a bit of help from everyone as Tricia Liston and Elizabeth Williams helped spark a late-rally to pull Duke through to the second round.

No. 2 Kentucky 61, No. 15 Navy 41
Kentucky made the most of the best seeding in school history, shaking off the cobwebs of a two-week layoff by the second half to take down Navy by 20 points.

No. 3 North Carolina 59, No. 14 Albany 54
Tierra Ruffin-Pratt scored a career-high 30 points and Waltiea Rolle added 14 points and eight blocks as the Tar Heels survived an upset scare from Albany. Ruffin-Pratt scored 17 of North Carolina's final 21 points, including the game-winning free throws with 10.8 seconds left.

No. 3 Penn State 85, No. 14 Cal Poly 55
Penn State used a big size advantage to take down Cal Poly in an easy first-round win. Penn State outscored Cal Poly in the paint, 44-28.

No. 4 Purdue 77, No. 13 Liberty 43
Liberty was held to just 27 percent shooting as Purdue pounded Liberty on the glass early and quickly to take home its 16th straight NCAA Tournament first round win.

No. 5 Louisville 74, No. 12 Mid Tennessee 49
Middle Tennessee's first-round NCAA Tournament bad luck continues as Shoni Schimmel scored 20 points for the Cardinals. Middle Tennessee has lost six straight first-round games.

No. 6 Delaware 66, No. 11 West Virginia 53
Elena Delle Donne scored 33 points as the Blue Hens had a big second half to extend their school-record home win streak to 26 games. Delaware draws North Carolina in the next round as it looks for its first Sweet 16 berth in school history.

No. 6 LSU 75, No. 11 Green Bay 71
LSU led by 18 points at one point in the game but needed every ounce of effort to gut out a four-point win to set up a rematch of last year's second-round matchup against Penn State.

No. 7 Oklahoma State 73, No. 10 DePaul 56
DePaul's top scorer couldn't find her shot, and that made things a whole lot easier for Oklahoma State. Brittany Hrynko, who normally averages 15 points, went just 2-for-17 in the loss.

No. 7 Dayton 96, No. 10 St. John's 90
Dayton needed two overtimes to get its second NCAA Tournament win ever, as Andrea Hoover scored a career-high 24 points in the win. It was the first double-overtime tournament game since 2000.

No. 8 Florida State 60, No. 9 Princeton 44
Princeton is going home early for the fourth straight year as Florida State got a big enough lead in the first half and held off the rally for the win.

No. 8 Michigan 60, No. 9 Villanova 52
Michigan had to grind out a win in the second half after entering halftime with only a two-point lead. It held Villanova to 39 percent shooting in the win.

No. 9 Iowa 69, No. 8 Miami
Samantha Logic scored 23 points and grabbed 11 rebounds as the Hawkeyes pulled the only upset of the day to secure a spot in the second-round.
