Penn State 83, Florida 61
The No. 3 seed Penn State Lady Lions played one of their most complete games of the season in the 83-61 rout of No. 11 seed Florida in the NCAA Tournament Second Round. Penn State will now travel to Palo Alto, Calif. to face off against No. 2 seed Stanford in the Sweet Sixteen, which is the program's 13th berth in Penn State history. For the second-straight game, Penn State's seniors carried the team on the way to one of its most impressive victories of the season. Dara Taylor, Maggie Lucas and Ariel Edwards each had monster games en route to the lopsided victory. Taylor played the best game of her collegiate career, setting her career-high with 22 points and matching her personal best with eight rebounds while adding four assists and a steal to complete her impressive evening.

Louisville 83, Iowa 53
One of the best seasons in University of Iowa women's basketball history ended against one of the best teams in the NCAA Tournament Tuesday on Mediacom Court inside Carver-Hawkeye Arena. The No. 19 Hawkeyes bowed out of their seventh consecutive NCAA Tournament, 83-53, to No. 4 Louisville, a team that somehow slipped to a No. 3 seed in the Louisville Region. It was Iowa's first loss at home to a nonconference opponent this season. The Hawkeyes (27-9 overall) picked a poor time to shoot a season-low from long range, making 1-of-16 3-point field goal attempts. Ironically, junior Melissa Dixon sank the final 3-point attempt of the game for Iowa with 2:17 remaining. RECAP

North Carolina 62, Michigan State 53
Two days after tallying a double-double and setting a program rebounding record in the tournament, redshirt freshman Aerial Powers battled foul trouble and didn't make a basket during Michigan State's 62-53 loss at North Carolina in Tuesday night's second round. Powers, a 6-foot guard who missed last year with a torn left Achilles' tendon, finished with two points on 0-for-5 shooting in 17 minutes. Powers came in as a first-team all-Big Ten pick averaging a team-best 13.8 points. She had 26 points and set a program record for an NCAA game with 18 rebounds in the 30-point win against Hampton on Sunday. But with 6-2 sophomore Xylina McDaniel starting out on her defensively, Powers played just six minutes in a scoreless first half after picking up two fouls. RECAP
