    Women's March Madness thread

    I figured a separate thread to include general discussion about the women's tournament might be a good thing.

    From today's games it is apparent that the women's game has gained a lot of parity in the past few seasons (outside of the beasts at the top). I remember 5-10 years ago when you wouldn't even need to pay attention to the tourney until the Sweet 16 because it was almost a given the top four seeds from each region would advance.

    Looking at games today there are already a few upsets looming:

    (12) Wisconsin Green Bay is leading (5) Virginia 34-27 going into the second half in the undercard fight to the Iowa State game. Virginia (and particularly their star player) scare me a bit with Aus recovering, so an upset could be a big blessing for Iowa State.

    (11) San Diego State has a strong 44-30 lead over (6) Texas at the half. I expected a bit of a run from Texas in the tournament, but they are getting pretty soundly rolled.

    Also, (11) Arkansas Little Rock is up against (6) Georgia Tech 38-28 early in the second half.

    It's shaping up to be a more interesting tournament this year. Let's hope someone can step up to challenge UCONN!

    UCONN won their first game by 56 points. I know they were playing a 16 seed and always win by a lot.... but holy crap.

    They are absolutely on another level. For anyone that doesn't follow women's basketball, take a look at their season results.

    Some highlights for you:

    105-35 vs. Northeastern
    83-58 at #10 Texas
    88-47 vs. #7 North Carolina
    70-46 vs. #3 Notre Dame (that's one of three victories against the Irish on the season)
    81-48 at #7 Duke
    80-47 vs. #11 West Virginia (also crushed them 60-32 in the conference championship)


    Absolutely destruction. They've only really been challenged once or twice this year, and they've still won those matches by double-digits.

    Wisconsin Green Bay has some good looking players.

    Sloppy game.

    Texas women's bb, with their million-dollar coach, is turning into a version of their men's team.

    A shocking amount of turnovers in this Virginia v GB game.

    You're right, this is an absolute mess of a game. Pure meltdown from Green Bay, kind of the opposite of what you'd expect from a team named the Phoenix.

    Also, Virginia has some horrible sports on their team. Way too much pushing and pouting after the play.

    Green Bay - I think I've finally found a team that likes tanning beds more than ISU...

    San Diego State completes the upset over 6th-seeded Texas on the Longhorns' home court.

    Arkansas Little Rock upsets 6th-seeded Georgia Tech.

    Wisconsin-Green Bay finishes an ugly, ugly win over 5th-seeded Virginia in Ames. (The winner of Lehigh and) Iowa State will play the Phoenix.
