2012 NCAA Women's Tournament Bracket And Schedule: Final Four Sunday In Denver

The 2012 Women's NCAA Tournament selection committee must be feeling pretty good about themselves, as all four of their selections as No. 1 seeds will be playing in the Final Four on Sunday in Denver. It is only the second time in the history of the women's tournament that all four No. 1 seeds have advanced to the Final Four.

The first game, tipping off at 6:30 p.m. ET, will pit Big East foes against each other for the fourth time this season. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish, coming off a demolition of Maryland, will take on the Connecticut Huskies, who defeated Kentucky in the Elite 8 to reach Denver.

The late game, scheduled for approximately 8:30 p.m. ET, will see Brittney Griner and the undefeated Baylor Bears take on the Stanford Cardinal. Baylor defeated Tennessee in a physical affair to make it to Denver, while Stanford easily handled Duke in Elite 8 play. The Cardinal have now made five straight Final Four appearances.

Women's NCAA Bracket 2012: Baylor, Stanford Are First Two Final Four Teams

The first two games in the Women's NCAA Tournament Elite Eight were played on Monday night and two tickets were punched for the Final Four. As there had been for much of the tournament, chalk was in the air.

If there was ever going to be an upset, it probably would have come in the matchup of No. 1 Baylor and No. 2 Tennessee. I'm not saying Baylor is ripe to be upset, but you can never bet against Pat Summit. Unfortunately, it wasn't meant to be. Baylor ran over Tennessee like they have in almost every game this season. Final score, 77-58.

The second game of the evening was No. 2 Duke against No. 1 Stanford, and there was enough chalk to make it to the late game. No. 1 Stanford rolled behind senior star Nneka Ogwumike and her 29 point 17 rebound double-double. Stanford rolled 81-69.

Elite Eight play continues on Tuesday with No. 2 Maryland Vs. No. 1 Notre Dame and No. 2 Kentucky Vs. No. 1 Connecticut for the last two Final Four spots.
