Women's NCAA Tournament Bracket Update: Stanford Cardinal Return To The Final Four

The Stanford Cardinal are heading back to the Final 4 to try again for another national championship. They can thank their two sororal talents in the middle for getting them there.


Just like in the victory over North Carolina, Nnemkadi Ogwumike and her sister Chiney drove the team to victory, this time beating down the cinderella of the tournament, eleventh-seeded Gonzaga Bulldogs in Spokane (an essential road game) in the Elite 8. The two of them combined for 20 of the first 32 points to put the Cardinal up ten in the first eleven minutes of the game, and in the second half they blitzed the Bulldogs with 16 of the first 18 points to put Stanford comfortably up 20. Nnemkadi finished with 23 points and 11 rebounds, Chiney 18 points and 15 boards.

They will face Notre Dame, who upset Tennessee in their regional final to get to Indianapolis. The game will be broadcast in Sunday on 4 PM PT/7 PM ET on ESPN.
