Women's NCAA Tournament 2012 Bracket: UConn Crushes Kansas State, 72-26, To Advance To The Sweet 16

The UConn Huskies set an NCAA Women's Tournament record on Monday night, holding the Kansas State Wildcats to just 26 points in a 72-26 win to advance to the Sweet 16. The Wildcats shot just 17.5 percent from the floor, and went 4-for-26 from beyond the 3-point arc. The Huskies shot 50.9 percent as a team, led by Bria Hartley's 16 points.

The Wildcats actually led very briefly in the first half, taking a 3-2 lead 34 seconds into the game. They proceeded to miss their next 18 consecutive shot, however, going 11:17 without a point. From then on it was all Huskies.

Brittany Chambers was the only Wildcat to reach double-digit points on the night. She went 4-for-16 from the floor to get there, however, finishing with 11 points. Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis added 15 points for the Huskies off the bench.
