Update: NCAA Women’s Final — UCONN vs. Notre Dame
Now that the Men’s NCAA Tournament is through and the Connecticut Huskies are the new NCAA Champions of the basketball world, the UCONN women will try to follow in the Men’s footsteps Tuesday night vs. Notre Dame in the Women’s NCAA finale. No. 1 Notre Dame (37-0) vs. No. 1 seed Connecticut (39-0) should be a game for the ages!
The game is scheduled to tip off at 8:30 p.m. ET, Tuesday, and can be seen nationally on ESPN and live online through WatchESPN.
If you are a college basketball fan, this weekend is your weekend! The 2014 NCAA Tournament is down to the Sweet 16 round and this is as good as it gets when it comes to college basketball. If you still have a bracket that has a chance ow winning you are nothing short of a genius. The action kicks off this Thursday afternoon with the top two bracket busters squaring off when the Dayton Flyers face the Stanford Cardinal. Dayton has defeated Ohio State and Syracuse and can no longer be considered a “Cinderella” team. Any team that defeats those two powerhouses in back to back games means business!
It’s actually a shame that Dayton and Stanford are meeting up since obviously only one of these underdogs can move on to the next round. The other games on Thursday’s schedule come as no surprise really as they are full of top seeded teams including two No. 1 seeds in Arizona and Florida.
Friday’s action may have one of the best game’s out of the eight going during the Sweet 16 round.
The last game to tip off Friday night will feature two red hot teams when the Michigan State Spartans face Virginia. Tom Izzo has his team playing some of the best basketball in the country right now and so does Virginia head coach Tony Bennett. The Spartans motored through the Big Ten Tournament and have ripped off two straight NCAA wins, while Bennett has led Virginia to wins in 18 of the their last 19 games. Something has to give Friday night.
Fans will once again be able to catch all the action as every game will be televised by either CBS or TNT. For the on the go college hoops fan, you can catch every last second shot through your PC, tablet or smart phone by heading to NCAA.com/march-madness.
