NCAA Results
BYU 80, Nebraska 76
Brigham Young got a series of three-pointers from unexpected shooters and survived a furious second-half rally, as the 12th-seeded Cougars advanced to their second NCAA Sweet 16 by beating No. 4 seed Nebraska, 80-76 on Monday in the second round of the 2014 NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament at Pauley Pavilion. In her final game as a Husker, senior All-American scored 20 points and grabbed four rebounds to finish her historic career with more than 2,300 points and more than 1,100 rebounds. Junior forwards Emily Cady and Hailie Sample, who both started the 100th games of their career with Hooper on Monday night, both notched double-doubles for the Big Red. Cady finished with 13 points and 10 rebounds for her 14th double-double of the season and second of the NCAA Tournament. Sample added her third double-double of her career with 10 points and 10 rebounds. RECAP

Oklahoma State 73, Purdue 66
Brittney Martin had 20 points and 20 rebounds, leading Oklahoma State past Purdue 73-66 on Monday and into the Notre Dame Regional semifinals. The Cowgirls (25-8) won their second straight, ending a 15-game stretch in which they had alternated wins and losses. It's the first time since 2008 and the third time Oklahoma State has ever reached the NCAA's Sweet 16. It will face top-seeded Notre Dame on Saturday in South Bend, Ind. And it came on a night the fifth-seeded Cowgirls lost star point guard Tiffany Bias for nearly 10 minutes in the second half with what appeared to be a left leg or foot injury. Fourth-seed Purdue (22-9) was led by Whitney Bays with 21 points and 13 rebounds. RECAP
