Attempting to reach their sixth straight Final Four, the Connecticut Huskies will face Maryland in the Sweet 16. Though the Terrapins tied for second in the ACC, they do not have the resume of UConn, who lost only to Notre Dame and Baylor in the regular season. The Huskies have rolled in the tournament so far, cruising in their first two game by a combined 101 points. Maryland has cruised as well, defeating Quinnipiac and Michigan State.
In the second game in Bridgeport, one of the game's marquee players will be on display. Delaware's Elena Delle Donne will try to lead her Blue Hens to another upset, this time over Kentucky. The Hens have already beat West Virginia and North Carolina, but will now face the press of the Lady Wildcats. Kentucky has held court over Navy and Dayton thus far in the tournament. The Wildcats may have trouble with Delle Donne, who averages 25.8 ppg.
Here's the schedule for Bridgeport:
No. 2 Kentucky vs. No. 6 Delaware, Noon ET, ESPN/Watch ESPN
No. 1 Connecticut vs. No. 4 Maryland, 2 p.m ET, ESPN/Watch ESPN
