It’s March Madness Overload! Ladies Start Today!
COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — The women's NCAA Tournament gets underway today with half of the 64-team field playing. The Maryland women face Bucknell today at noon at College Park. Despite its displeasure with being a No. 3 seed in the NCAA Tournament, fourth-ranked Maryland need only win twice at home this weekend to reach the Sweet 16. One more victory after that, and the Terrapins could end up facing unbeaten, No. 1 Connecticut for the right to advance to the Final Four.

Notre Dame faces Robert Morris tonight at 7:30 p.m. at South Bend, Indiana. This season marks the seventh time overall, and the sixth time straight, where Notre Dame (30-3) is a top seed.
