The NCAA Women’s Tournament has officially tipped off, and it didn’t take long to see the first upset. On Friday afternoon, No. 11 seed Middle Tennessee shocked No. 6 seed Louisville in the third-largest comeback win in NCAA Women’s Tournament history. 

The Cardinals’ stunning defeat wasn’t the only source of excitement from Day 1 of the opening round. North Carolina survived a late rally to beat Michigan State, and Duke overcame a first-half deficit of its own to eliminate Richmond. Ohio State and South Carolina, meanwhile, cruised to easy wins over Maine and Presbyterian, respectively. Texas and Virginia Tech continued the blowout trend with big wins over Drexel and Marshall. 

Don’t forget, there’s still time to fill out your bracket and prepare for the action.
