Two rounds done; women’s tourney full of intrigue
Question of the Day
Brittney Griner has helped Baylor get through the first two rounds. The Lady Bears will next have to deal with mid-major darling Wisconsin-Green Bay. The Phoenix easily dispatched Michigan State to extend its winning streak to 25 games.
All season long the question has been how good are the Phoenix since they didn’t have the strongest schedule. They played only four foes ranked in the top 100 of the RPI during the regular season.
“I know they’ve only lost one basketball game,” Baylor coach Kim Mulkey said. “I watched them a long time last year in the Iowa State game in the playoffs, I have not watched much film on them this year, but we will. When you’ve only lost one game, that gets your attention.”
Unlike last season, one team that Baylor won’t have to go through to get back to the Final Four is Tennessee. The Lady Vols won both games on their homecourt to advance to Dayton. They got a scare from Marquette in the second round which coach Pat Summitt hopes will provide a renewed focus for her team.
Oklahoma ended Miami’s stellar season and the Sooners hope to get back to the Final Four for a third straight season. A matchup with No. 2 Notre Dame awaits in Ohio.
