The first round of the 2023 Women's NCAA Tournament has officially ended after a jam-packed weekend of thrilling games.
Among the teams that punched their tickets to the Round of 32 were No. 2 seed UConn and No. 5 seed Louisville, two teams that went to the Final Four last season. The Huskies, led by Aaliyah Edwards, are trying to win their first national championship since 2016. Edwards put together a championship-calibre performance in the Huskies' first-round victory over Vermont, recording 28 points on 13 of 15 shooting to go along with seven rebounds, five assists, four steals and two blocks.
The Cardinals aren't a No. 1 seed like they were last season, but they are still a threat to make a run, especially if Hailey Van Lith is playing at the top of her game. Van Lith has put together a monster season, averaging 19.2 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 3.2 assists per game. In the opening round against Drake, Van Lith played up to her reputation by recording a team-high 26 points and two steals in a narrow victory.
The only No. 1 seed in action on Saturday was Indiana, which took on No. 16 seed Tennessee Tech in Bloomington, Ind. Indiana predictably won in blowout fashion with Sydney Parrish recording 19 points and eight rebounds. Indiana is hoping to keep the momentum going and advance past the Elite Eight in the NCAA Tournament for the first time ever.
