Women's Elite Eight 2011 Bracket, TV Schedule, Game Times, Locations

Two tickets will be punched to the 2011 Final Four in Indianapolis on Monday, with two more on Tuesday. The games feature three heavyweight matchups and a fourth game with an upstart trying to pull the upset. 

Monday kicks off at 7:00 p.m. in Dayton with a battle between No. 2 Notre Dame and No. 1 Tennessee. The Lady Vols are coming off an 85-75 victory over Ohio State, while Notre Dame has won their three games all by double-digit margins on the way to the Elite 8. 

The second game of the doubleheader is No. 11 Gonzaga taking on No. 1 Stanford. Gonzaga has already beaten No. 6 Iowa, No. 3 UCLA, and No. 7 Louisville, but their toughest matchup will come Monday night. Can they pull off another upset to reach Indianapolis? 

Tuesday features a rematch of No. 2 versus No. 1 Connecticut. The Huskies absolutely dominated Duke in late January in a 87-51 victory. Baylor takes on Texas A&M in the late game. Baylor beat Green Bay on Sunday 86-76 and the Aggies are coming off a 79-38 demolition of No. 6 Georgia.

Georgia Vs. Texas A&M, Women's Bracket Update: Lady Dogs Hammered By Aggies 79-38

Georgia's run to this year's sweet 16 comes to an end at the hands of Texas A&M by a dominating score of 79-38. The Aggies started this game on a 32-5 run and never looked back. It took Georgia nearly six minutes to score their first basket and by the time they did they were already. Credit A&M for dominating the Bulldogs inside offensively and unleashing a suffocating defense. Georgia connected on only 25% of the field goal attempts while Texas A&M managed to shoot 44%. 

Danielle Adams led the way for the Aggies with 23 points and 14 rebounds. Tyra White added 14 points for A&M. Georgia was led by Jasmine James who scored 10 points for the Lady Dogs who trailed 48-17 at halftime. 

Texas A&M advances to the Elite Eight where they will play the winner of the Baylor, Green Bay match up from later tonight.

Georgia Vs. Texas A&M, Women's Sweet 16: Lady Dogs Look To Pull Yet Another Upset

Today's match up between the Georgia Lady Dogs and Texas A&M rekindles a rivalry between head coaches Andy Landers and Gary Blair. The SEC is familiar territory for Blair who coached at Arkansas from 1993-2003. Over that period, Blair didn't have a lot of success against Landers' Georgia teams going just 1-13. However, that may or may not play into today's game between the No. 6 seeded Bulldogs and the No. 2 seeded Aggies. 

The Aggies are a formidable opponent for the Lady Dogs at 29-5 and is led by leading scorer Danielle Adams who is averaging 22.7 points per game. A&M is also led by their experienced backcourt combination of Sydney Colson and Sydney Carter. 

The Bulldogs defeated Middle Tennessee State and Florida State on their way to the Sweet 16. Coach Landers has the Bulldogs in the round of 16 for the 19th time in his career. It will take a strong defensive effort to slow down a Texas A&M team that is averaging just under 80 points per game this season. Offensively the Lady Dogs provide a balanced attack led by 12.3 points per game. Seven Georgia players average at least seven points per game.

Women's NCAA Tournament 2011 Bracket, TV Schedule, Game Times For Sweet Sixteen

Georgia women's basketball topped FSU Tuesday night to advance to the 2011 NCAA Women's Sweet 16, Andy Landers' second-straight such appearance and sixth in the past nine years. They'll face Texas A&M, which has yet to be challenged after trouncing McNeese State and Rutgers in the first and second rounds.

The winner will draw either Baylor or Green Bay, by which I mean Baylor. A victory over the Aggies will set up an Elite Eight meeting with the terrifying Brittney Griner, who dropped 30 points on West Virginia in round two despite sitting out almost half of the first half. That's almost a quarter, if you think about it!

The Aggies have gone 29-5 this year, with three of those losses coming against Baylor. Two of those were three-point events, so if the Lady Bulldogs can't take down A&M, maybe a fourth meeting could be the charm.

Georgia Vs. Florida State, Women's Bracket Update: Lady Dogs Upset Seminoles 61-59

Jasmine James' put back with just two seconds remaining in the game provided the difference for the Bulldogs who survived over the No. 3 seeded Florida State Seminoles. With the Bulldogs down one, Porsha Phillips missed a shot with James collecting the put back while also getting fouled on the play. The basket gave the Bulldogs a one point lead and the ensuing free throw put Georgia up 61-59 with just two seconds remaining in the game. The Seminoles were unable to get off a shot and Georgia advances to the next round of the Women's NCAA Tournament. 

Anne Marie Armstrong led the Bulldogs with 15 points while James added 14 including the game winner. Georgia shot just 36% from the field in the game but survived by forcing Florida State into 19 turnovers. Cierra Bravard led Florida State with 19 points. Georgia trailed by as many as nine points in the second half before finishing the game on a run. 

Georgia advances to the Sweet Sixteen where they will take on the No. 2 seed Texas A&M

Georgia Tech Vs. Ohio State, Women's Bracket Update: Buckeyes top Yellow Jackets 67-60

Jantel Lavender paced the Buckeyes with 21 points and 11 rebounds. Samantha Prahalis added 16 for Ohio State who led by as much as 13 points in the second half. 

Tech had a hard time scoring shooting only 39% from the field for the game. Metra Walthour scored 15 points for the Yellow Jackets but was just 6-16 from the floor. Sasha Goodlett and Tyaunna Marshall each added 12 for Tech. Alex Montgomery had a tough night scoring seven points on 3-15 shooting. Montgomery was just 1-11 from three-point range on the night. 

The Yellow Jackets finish their season at 24-11 after going 9-5 in the ACC. 

Ohio State advances to the third round where they will play Tennessee who defeated Marquette 79-70 earlier today.

Women's NCAA Tournament Bracket Update, TV Schedule: Georgia Tech, Georgia Basketball Move On

Porsha Philips pitched in a double-double as Georgia women's basketball beat Middle Tennessee State, 56-41, to earn a trip to the second round of the 2011 NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament.

Among ACC teams, all six (Duke, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Maryland, Miami, North Carolina) moved on to the bracket's next round.

Women's NCAA Tournament 2011 Bracket, TV Schedule, Game Times, Locations, And More

The complete 2011 NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament bracket debuted Monday night on ESPN, with UConn, Tennessee, Baylor, and Stanford taking the No. 1 seeds. No. 5 Georgia Tech and No. 6 Georgia are scheduled to play their round-one games as favorites, taking on Bowling Green and Middle Tennessee State respectively.

Tech gets a tough road draw, with Columbus a far more favorable commute for Bowling Green. Georgia's haul to Auburn is slightly shorter than MTSU's, but at least it's familiar turf.

The Huskies are again the overall favorites, though not by as wide a margin as in previous years. If everything plays out as expected, they could wind up with a national title rematch against the Stanford squad that broke their record winning streak.

The women's tournament begins Saturday, March 19 in the Philadelphia and Dayton regions. Every March 19 game will be shown on both ESPN2 and ESPN3, with ESPN joining the rotation on March 20. For a better guess on which of the various ESPNs will air each game, go here.

Woman's NCAA Tournament Bracket 2011: UGA Joins Georgia Tech Among High Seeds

The 2011 Women's NCAA Bracket is out, and the south is well represented. The ACC has six representatives, including No. 4 Maryland, No. 2 Duke, No. 5 Georgia Tech, No. 3 Miami, No. 5 North Carolina, and No. 3 Florida State, meaning that six of the top 20 teams in the tournament from the ACC. The SEC has an unusually low amount of teams in the tournament with only four, including No. 1 Tennessee, No. 4 Kentucky, No. 10 Vanderbilt, and No. 6 Georgia. 

The top four seeds to no one's surprise are Connecticut, Tennessee, Stanford, and Baylor. Xavier, Duke, Notre Dame, and Texas A&M grabbed the two seeds. 

No. 5 Georgia Tech opens the tournament against No. 12 Bowling Green on Friday in Columbus, Ohio. The Jackets went 23-10 on the season, including a season sweep of North Carolina and victories over Maryland, Georgia, and Clemson. Tech went 9-5 in the ACC, finishing tied for fourth in the conference. Tech has faced some of the nation's toughest teams in the campaign, going up against Connecticut, Tennessee, and Georgetown. 

Bowling Green finished the year 28-4 and 13-3 in MAC play. Their only win over a ranked opponent was in early December with a 79-68 victory over 23rd ranked Vanderbilt. The Falcons won the MAC tournament and enter the NCAA tournament on an 11 game win streak. 

The winner will most likely face a tough No. 4 Ohio State squad and then a potential matchup in the Sweet 16 against No. 1 Tennessee. 

Georgia gets the No. 6 seed and will face Middle Tennessee State on Saturday in the first round in Auburn, Alabama. Georgia finished the season with a 21-10 record and a third place finish in the SEC with a 10-6 record. The Lady Bulldogs have wins over Kentucky, Arkansas, and Kentucky. 

Middle Tennessee State finished with a 23-7 record and a 14-2 mark in the Sun Belt. The Blue Raiders only faced two ranked squads in Xavier and Kentucky, losing both. The winner of the first round game gets a potential date against either No. 3 Florida State or No. 14 Samford. The top seed in the bottom of their bracket is No. 2 Texas A&M.

Women's NCAA Bracket 2011 Selection Show Schedule: Georgia Tech, Georgia Aim For High Seeds

Monday night is 2011 NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament selection night, with the 64-team bracket unveiled live on ESPN at 7 pm ET. According to bracketologist Charlie Creme, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets and Georgia Bulldogs both stand to earn high seeds, the Jackets as a No. 5 seed and the Lady Dogs as a No. 7.

 Georgia Tech finished No. 5 in an ACC much deeper than its men's counterpart and are ranked No. 24 in the latest AP top 25. A season sweep of North Carolina and four conference road wins are their primary claims to fame.

Georgia has dropped four of its last five, including a pair to Tennessee, but scored impressive back-to-back road wins against Kentucky and Arkansas earlier in SEC play. They finished third in the conference.

The Big East is expected to dominate proceedings just as it did yesterday, though the ACC should fare much better. The SEC is projected to send five teams.
