Natalie Achonwa discusses injury in post-game interview

+

Interviewer Maria Taylor: "Do you know what your prognosis is, whether or not you'll be able to play in the Final Four?"

Natalie: "No I'm not sure. But I know at Notre Dame, my family and this team, we're praying people. And faith in God and the fact that whatever happens happens. And that no matter what, these 13 girls will fight."

Here's an update on Achonwa's status in regards to her knee injury during Notre Dame's win over Baylor on Monday, March 31 over Baylor.

Notre Dame beats Baylor to advance to Final Four

+

Sadly, the officiating ended up detracting from the enjoyment of what should've been a marquee matchup between some of the nation's top offensive stars, but Notre Dame is undefeated for a reason and used their balanced lineup to beat Baylor and advance to a fourth straight Final Four.

Jewell Loyd and Odyssey Sims put on a show scoring 30 and 33 points respectively to lead their teams, but Baylor struggled as they had multiple post players in foul trouble.

Alyssa Thomas scores career-high in Maryland's win over Tennessee

+

As David Hooper of Rocky Top Talk wrote in his preview this morning, "We're now at the point in the tournament where any team can realistically beat any other team (Notre Dame and UConn excepted)" - it's hard to call this one a true "upset".

But with Tennessee having an opportunity to go to the Final Four with a home crowd behind them, it's certainly a disappointment for Lady Vols fans.

On the other hand, Alyssa Thomas looked about as dominant as it gets in scoring a career-high 33 points to go with 13 rebounds.

UNC vs. South Carolina rewind: Can UNC win again?

Like the Baylor - Kentucky game yesterday, the Sweet 16 game between North Carolina and South Carolina is a rematch of a December game in which the lower seed won. So what can we learn from...

Notre Dame Blasts Cowgirls, advance to Elite 8

Notre Dame is one win away from advancing to their fifth straight Final Four

#7 DePaul upsets #2 Duke, advances to Sweet 16

+

I was neither confident that DePaul would be in the second round nor that Duke would lose at home in my preview of the Lincoln bracket, but Queenie sounded pretty confident that Duke would not advance and that DePaul would be the one to take them down during her radio interview on Edge of Sports Radio with Dave Zirin and it came to fruition tonight.

Offensively, DePaul spread the court with a crew of players who can score from deep with the quickness to drive to the basket; Defensively, Duke was struggled to contest shooters and stop dribble penetration.

Battle of the evil blues do battle for Sweet 16

Fresh off playing in the NCAA Tournament's high scoring regulation game, the DePaul Blue Demons will have their hands full with the 2nd-seeded Duke Blue Devils.

Alyssa Thomas draws high praise from Army coach Dave Magarity

"I haven't been in the women's game that long. I came from the men's side. I coached the number two pick in the NBA draft, Rik Smits in college. She is one of the best players I have ever seen. In terms of her instincts, her ability. What an unbelievable nose for the ball. Just tremendous. She's so good in person. I knew she was good watching her on tape but I hadn't seen her live before. So that was in some ways a treat as a basketball person. It wasn't a lot of fun for these guys [indicating his players]. She's just unbelievable. But we did a pretty good job I thought of keeping her in front of us. We forced her into a couple of tough shots. We doubled her whenever we could. But to her credit, she had four assists. She found people. She's so unselfish. And she still goes for a double double."

From "Ferocious defense and hot shooting propelled Terps past Army 90-52" via Todd Carton of SB Nation's Testudo Times.
