There weren’t many surprises this weekend in the first round of the women’s NCAA Tournament.
Twenty-eight of 32 top seeds advanced, and there was only one upset of any significance, 12th-seeded Kansas’s 15-point win over 5th-seeded Colorado.
But there were plenty of good games, including Dayton’s double-OT victory over St. John’s and North Carolina’s win over 14th-seeded Albany after trailing by five at the half (and not including Connecticut’s 105-37 thrashing of Idaho).
Second round games are tonight and tomorrow. Tonight’s line-up includes a pair of intriguing 4-5 games: Maryland-Michigan State at 6:20 Central and Georgia-Iowa State at 8:50. Tomorrow will see All-American Elena Delle Donne and Delaware take on coach Sylvia Hatchell’s third-seeded North Carolina Tar Heels.
Below is the schedule and television information for the second round. All start times are Central Time. Every game is available on the WatchESPN app.
