NCAA Women’s Tournament 2016: Regional Finals (Round of 8) Day 1

Welcome to Upset Day! That’s right, every single team in this side of the Regional Finals bracket had to upset a higher seeded team to get here. The Regional Champions go on to represent their Regions in the National Semi-Finals (Round of 4) on Sunday April 3rd.

Do I have my favorites? Sure, Syracuse because I went there (and I hate Tennessee), and Washington, in part because I think a Husky v. Husky Final would be an amusing broadcast to listen to the announcers struggle with, but also because Stanford has a history of being UConn streak enders and I think they’re the most dangerous team left on this side of the bracket. There will be no designated underdog, they are all underdogs.

    Stanford’s Karlie Samuelson’s sister Katie Lou plays for UConn. The only way they would play each other would be in the Final. Doesn’t look like there is any chance of that

    1. pretty notable family, another older sister also played for Stanford, graduated last year.

  21. Hi Ek. Hi TMC.

    >>Stanford is not plating their A game like they did against Notre Dame.

    nice understatement. Couldn’t overcome a terrible start and couldn’t get inside effectively at all.

    1. Hey there,

      Good to see you. How do you like the new digs?

      1. this is just fine, good job with the transition. no longer among the sites most likely to crash firefox.

          It took us a couple of weeks to get it going. There are still kinks to be worked out but nothing major. I really miss Edger. The folks at Go-Daddy and WordPress have been realy helpful

      • TMC on March 27, 2016 at 3:59 pm

      Too bad, they played so well against ND. IT would have been fun to see the Samuelson sisters compete in the final if Sanford had made it. I have little doubt about UConn winning.
