Oregon Ducks women's basketball stuns Duke to reach NCAA Sweet 16

No. 7 seed OR shredded Duke's matchup zone defense on its way to a 74-65 upset victory at Cameron Indoor Stadium Monday night.

Maryland women's basketball clinched a spot in the Sweet 16 with a 27-point win Sunday over West Virginia, and the No. 3-seed Terps will play OR in the Bridgeport regional semifinals.

Quinnipiac 85, Miami 78 • Morgan Manz scored 22 points and made six 3s and 12th-seeded Quinnipiac stunned fourth-seeded Miami.

Although the Blue Devils had a season of redemption after missing the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1994 past year by finishing tied for second in the ACC regular-season standings and advancing to the conference tournament title game, another season ended on a sour note for head coach Joanne P. McCallie's team. The Bobcats of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference made 15 of 26 from 3-point range, and won their 12th straight game.

With the Blue Devils unable to get Greenwell going, the Ducks continued surging anytime Duke got close, with Hebard, Cazorla and Bando all scoring in the final 1:33 of the third period to put their team up by 11.

Prince added five rebounds and six assists, while Kristy Wallace had 10 points and nine assists. She had 25 points. 3 Seed Maryland is up next, but OR won't look ahead. Plum passed former Missouri State star Jackie Stiles' record (1,062) to become the all-time single-season scoring leader, having already topped Stiles' all-time career scoring mark last month.

No. 4 Louisville 75, No. 5 Tennessee 64: At Louisville, Ky., Asia Durr scored 23 points, Mariya Moore made all five 3-pointers for 19 points and Louisville beat Tennessee 75-64 in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

No. 2 Stanford 69, No. 7 Kansas State 48: At Manhattan, Kan.

The Sweet 16 now takes the Oregon Ducks to CT, a place where teams don't go to win.

The Cardinal had no problem dealing with the Wildcats or their home crowd, which spent much of the game sitting in silence. The Oregon Ducks seemed to step on the gas from the start and never look back.
