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.
