The first day of the second round of the NCAA Women's Tournament saw a couple of big upsets, but that wasn't the case on Tuesday as all but one of the higher seeds moved on to the Sweet 16.
The West Virginia Mountaineers were the lone upset on the second day of the second round. Here is the updated bracket for the NCAA Women's Tournament, followed by a brief rundown of each game on Tuesday.
No. 1 Connecticut 91, No. 9 Saint Joseph's 52
No team is as synonymous with the Sweet 16 as the Connecticut Huskies, who are making their 21st consecutive trip to glory. Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis led the Huskies with 20 points, 10 rebounds and 10 steals. It is the third triple-double in UConn history and the 14th in NCAA Women's Tournament history. Stefanie Dolson, who had the Huskies' other triple-double this season, finished with 17 points and six rebounds.
No. 4 Maryland 69, No. 5 Texas 64
Without Alyssa Thomas, Maryland would most likely be heading home. Thomas led the Terrapins with 16 points and scored all of them in the second half as Maryland held off a late rally from the Longhorns in the win. Texas struggled to get its offense going, hitting 36.2 percent of its shots from the floor.
No. 4 North Carolina 62, No. 5 Michigan State 53
Freshman Diamond DeShields scored 24 points and grabbed 12 rebounds to help guide North Carolina into another Sweet 16. In the process, she also set the ACC freshmen scoring record with 596 points. Much of the success for the Tar Heels came in shutting down Aerial Powers, the Spartans' leading scorer, who finished with two points. In the first round she scored 26 points and grabbed 18 rebounds.
No. 3 Penn State 83, No. 11 Florida 61
Maggie Lucas scored 22 points and became the fourth player in Big Ten history to score more than 2,500 points as Penn State crushed Florida. Lucas is the two-time Big Ten player of the year and helped spur an early 11-0 scoring run to put Florida away. The Gators couldn't compete early on, missing 10 of their first 13 shots.
No. 3 Louisville 83, No. 6 Iowa 53
Louisville's defense ran laps around Iowa on Tuesday night, forcing 19 turnovers and leading by 38 points at one point in the game. The Hawkeyes were held to 33 percent shooting and made just 1-of-16 three pointers. Louisville guard Shoni Schimmel scored 26 points and helped keep Louisville clicking at a good rate, as the team shot 53 percent from the floor.
No. 7 LSU 76, No. 2 West Virginia 67
LSU had to battle back from a seven-point second-half deficit to be the only team to pull off the upset on Tuesday. Even more impressive, the Tigers did it all while dealing with a solid amount of foul trouble. Danielle Ballard led all scorers with 22 points, but it was Shanence McKiney who was the real hero of the game. McKinney played for 12 minutes with four fouls while trying to keep West Virginia's Asya Bussie from carving up the post. Bussie led the Mountaineers with 21 points.
No. 1 South Carolina 78, No. 9 Oregon State 68
South Carolina held Oregon State to 38.5 percent shooting and made sure that the Gamecocks weren't bounced in the second round of the tournament for the second time running. Aleighsa Welch scored 21 points and Tiffany Mitchell added 20 as South Carolina overwhelmed Oregon State for the win. The Gamecocks won the game on the free throw line, attempting 43 free throws compared to 18 for Oregon State.
No. 3 Texas A&M 85, No. 11 James Madison 69
The Aggies got big statistical performances across the board from pretty much everyone on the team. Courtney Williams led the squad with 23 points, Karla Gilbert finished with 20 points and 15 rebounds and Jordan Jones dished out 16 assists. It was the first ever meeting between the two teams. James Madison upset No. 6 seed Gonzaga for its first tournament win since 1991.
