Last night, Gonzaga became the first double-digit seed to advance to this year's Sweet Sixteen in the 2012 NCAA women's basketball tournament. Tonight, two more teams look to join them.
First, No. 13 Marist is pitted against fellow mid-major St. Bonaventure for an elusive trip to regional site, Raleigh, this weekend. One of the Big 12's 'last four in', Kansas, is paired with the tough test of facing off with Delaware's phenom Elena Delle Donne. The final field of 16 teams will be set by the time the first day of spring has sprung.
Games will be on wrap around coverage on ESPN2 as well as online in their entirety at ESPN3. All times eastern.
