Who created the Elite Eight?

The Elite Eight for the NCAA Women’s Tournament is locked with the No. 1 seeds making a statement and the Cinderellas are still being hunted.

The NCAA Women’s Tournament is down to just eight.

All four No. 1 seeds take care of business and overcome the matches to put themselves in a position to knock the net.

South Carolina knocked out No. 5 North Carolina in a head-to-head match on Friday, 69-61, while Stanford edged out No. 4 Maryland, 72-66.

Saturday’s action saw NC State pass 5th Notre Dame, 66-63, and Louisville trailed off 4th place Tennessee.

A few 2nd seeds also won tickets to the Elite Eight. As for UConn, that involved a crunch win over 3 Indiana, 75-58. It was a narrower situation for Texas in its 66-63 win over Ohio State No.

Friday’s surprise came courtesy of No. 10 Creighton, who pestered Iowa State No. 3 to extend their magic run and gain total dominion over Iowa.

The South Dakota No 10 tried to do the same with the Michigan No 3 on Saturday night but the Wolverines kept going forward, 52-49.
