The No. 6 seed Texas Longhorns women’s basketball team upset the No. 3 seed UCLA Bruins last night, sending the Longhorns to the NCAA Tournament’s Sweet 16.
It’s the 16th time the Longhorns have appeared in the Sweet 16.
As noted by Texas Sports, “The win marks only the third time in Texas history that the Longhorns have won an NCAA Tournament game as the lower-seeded team. UT’s previous two victories came in 2003 (No. 2 Texas def. No. 1 LSU) and 1990 (No. 3 Texas def. No. 2 NC State). In addition, the victory secured Texas’ 37th 20-win season in school history.”

- Oklahoma Sooners head coach Lincoln Riley doesn’t thing guys like quarterback Chandler Morris, who recently left the Sooners to join the TCU Horned Frogs, shouldn’t be eligible.
Lincoln Riley says his opposition to Chandler Morris' immediate eligibility at TCU is about a core belief that you shouldn't be able to transfer intraconference without any kind of penalty. He said it's bad for the game.— Jason Kersey (@jasonkersey) March 24, 2021
