Great job, Wahine! Let's just tear through this regional! Ironically, an old article is at the top of the "More from the SA" section below and at first, I thought they played two matches and lost to Washington in the next round. But, that should serve as a reminder NOT to have history repeat itself!

You noticed how "full" that small gymnasium looked? If the games were at the Stan, sold out for sure. What was the NCAA thinking?

The brackets are skewed to favor Penn St. who has only No. 8 Minnesota or No. 9 Florida St. to punch their ticket to the Final Four. In Hawaii's bracket, besides No.13 Washington, they have to get past No. 4 Nebraska and probably No. 5 Oregon to get to the Final Four. Hosting the first two rounds is immaterial They're in the toughest bracket.
