Here are the matches which are all on TV without interruption, and also on ESPN 3:

Time (ET) Teams Region TV
12:00 PM #6 Delaware at #2 Kentucky Bridgeport ESPN
2:00 PM #4 Maryland at #1 Connecticut Bridgeport ESPN
9:00 PM #4 Georgia at #1 Stanford Spokane ESPN
11:30 PM #6 LSU at #2 California Spokane ESPN 2

In a nutshell for the afternoon, we get to see Elena Delle Donne facing a team that's a rising power in women's college basketball, followed by a rematch of two national powers, each with a senior whom the Mystics are strongly considering with the 4th pick in the 2013 Draft. In the evening, we'll see the country's strongest national power in the west face off against one of the SEC's traditional powers, but then we will see another rising national power in the West face off against a former head coach at a conference rival who is bringing another SEC power back to prominence.

So enjoy watching the basketball during your lunch break and tonight!
