2012 Women's NCAA Tournament Bracket And Schedule: Remaining Sweet 16 Games Finish Up On Sunday

The women's NCAA tournament will round out the Elite Eight with regional semifinal action continuing on Sunday. In the Raliegh region No. 1 seed Notre Dame with star guard Skylar Diggins expect to advance against No. 5 seed St. Bonaventure. But before the Fighting Irish play, No. 2 seed Maryland play the defending champion and No. 3 seed Texas A&M Aggies in what should be a highly competitive Sweet 16 game.

In The Kingston Region, No. 1 seed UConn hopes to keep rolling against a strong No. 4 seed in Penn State, while No. 2 seed Kentucky will be on upset alert when they close out the day's action by playing No. 11 seed Gonzaga for the final spot in the Elite Eight.

The other four spots were decided in the Des Moines and Fresno semifinals on Saturday. Baylor, Tennesse, Stanford and Duke were all double-digit winners as the top two seeds in both regions advanced to what should be a highly entertaining pair of regional finals.

NCAA Women's Tournament 2012, Ohio State Vs. Florida Score: Buckeyes Bow Out In First Round With Loss To Gators

The Ohio State women's basketball season ended unceremoniously on Sunday with a first-round loss to the Florida Gators. The Buckeyes were the No. 8 seed but had the fortuitous placement of being sent to Bowling Green for the first and second round games. They were not able to capitalize on the friendly environment and lost to the Gators, 70-65, in their opening round game.

Tayler Hill scored 23 points to lead OSU, including two buckets down the stretch that cut the Florida lead to just two. But OSU could never pull even with Florida, who moved on behind the performance of Jennifer George, who answered Hill at the other end. George had 16 points and six rebounds for Florida. The Gators will almost certainly play the No. 1 overall seed in the next round - an undefeated Baylor Bears squad led by Brittney Griner.
