We’re down to 16 teams left in the Women’s NCAA Tournament, and No. 1 Louisville easily defeated No. 16 Albany and No. 9 Gonzaga to reach the regional weekend. For No. 4 Tennessee, a pair of automatic qualifiers in No. 13 Buffalo and No. 12 Belmont saw them through to the Sweet 16.

A place in the Elite Eight is on the line between these two teams at Intrust Bank Arena in Wichita, Kansas on Saturday afternoon.

No. 1 Louisville Cardinals 27-4 (16-2 ACC)

Hailey Vin Lith is the Cardinals leading scorer with 14 points per game, and poured in 20 and 21 in her first two games of the 2022 NCAA Tournament. Expect Van Lith to have another big performance in this one.

No. 4 Tennessee Volunteers 25-8 (11-5 SEC)

The Volunteers have four players scoring double digit points per game, and balance is always helpful during an NCAA Tournament run. Alexus Dye has been the leading scorer for the Vols in the NCAA Tournament at 19 points per game.
