The Huskies have won 34-straight against ACC teams dating back to an 82- 76 loss at No. 2 UNC on January 15, 2007.

That's what the Huskies did last April, holding Sykes to just 12 points and Peterson to 11 in an 82-51 win in the title game. But the Huskies only have one starter, guard Gabby Williams, back from that game. Meanwhile, her backcourt mate Brittney Sykes finished with 28 points, 5 assists, and 6 rebounds.

Ruthy Hebard had 20 points and 15 rebounds, and OR earned its first Sweet 16 berth by upsetting Duke at Durham, North Carolina.

Iowa State actually outscored Syracuse 57-52 over the final three quarters, but the game was decided in the first 10 minutes.

The Ducks, in their first tournament since 2005, had never advanced past the second round in their 12 previous appearances. No. 4 seed Louisville will face top-seeded Baylor in the regional semifinal.

OR 74, Duke 65: Ruthy Hebard scored 20 points as OR earned its first Sweet 16 berth by upsetting second-seeded Duke (28-6) in Durham, N.C. Duke played without guard Kyra Lambert, who tore her left anterior cruciate ligament in the first round against Hampton.

Asia Durr scored 23 points, Mariya Moore made all five 3-pointers for 19 points and Louisville beat Tennessee in Louisville, Kentucky.

An 18-point fourth wrapped up the win for Syracuse. You could say he knows a thing or two about how to coach.

The victor advances to face the Texas A&M-UCLA victor in the Bridgeport Region semifinal.

The U.S. intelligence community concluded that Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the hacking into computers at the DNC. But there was an obvious difference in how the committee's Democratic and Republican lawmakers approached the questioning.

Syracuse held close with the Huskies out of the gate-it was still a two-point game with just under six minutes left in the half. Diamond DeShields had 15.

Stanford 69, Kansas State 48: Brittany McPhee had 21 points as Stanford routed No. 7 seed Kansas State to advance to its 10th straight Sweet 16.

The Cardinal (30-5) had no problem dealing with the Wildcats (23-11) or their home crowd, which spent much of the game sitting in silence.

Syracuse led 45-24 at halftime.

Napheesa Collier chipped in with 17 points, seven rebounds, three assists, three steals and two blocked shots as UConn, winners of an NCAA record 109 games in a row, improved to 34-0.

Eighth-seeded Syracuse will bring a red-hot 3-point shooter into Monday's NCAA Tournament second-round game against top-seeded CT.

Kristine Anigwe had 20 points for ninth-seeded California (20-14).

Cooper made eight 3-pointers on 15 attempts and her early shooting opened the floor for her teammates. Sarah Shewan and Paula Strautmane each scored 11 for Quinnipiac (29-6), which will head to Stockton, Calif. and play top-seeded SC on Saturday.

Quinnipiac 85, Miami 78: Morgan Manz scored 22 points as No. 12 seed Quinnipiac stunned Miami (24-9) in Coral Gables, Fla.
