No. 3 seed LSU (30-2) vs. No. 2 seed Utah (27-4), Greenville, S.C., Friday, 5 p.m. ET.

Kim Mulkey has the Tigers headed to the second weekend for the first time since 2014, and All-American Angel Reese is rolling. She had 25 points, 24 rebounds, six blocks, four assists, and three steals in a win over Michigan. The Utes have an All-American, too, in Alissa Pili, who had 28 points and 10 rebounds in a 63-56 victory against Princeton. Utah had not been to the Sweet 16 since 2006.

First-team All-American Caitlin Clark is a handful for Iowa opponents; she had 22 points and 12 assists against Georgia. The Buffaloes needed overtime in a 61-53 victory at Duke. Quay Miller came up huge to help Colorado get to its first Sweet 16 in 20 years with 17 points and 14 rebounds.

The Cardinals didn’t get to host the first weekend like they usually do, but it hardly seemed to matter as they routed Texas to reach the Sweet 16 for the sixth consecutive year.

Virginia Tech is in just its second Sweet 16, the Lady Vols in their 36th.
