UConn leads field into Sweet 16
Big East, Big 12 send four teams apiece; Pac-10, Big Ten each add three
Connecticut cruised into the Sweet 16 on Tuesday just as anticipated, but it has Big East company that perhaps wasn't so expected. At least not according to the seedings.
The Big East got seven teams into the tournament, and four of them are moving on to the regional semifinals, which open Saturday (ESPN, noon ET). Three were among the top four seeds: the No. 1 Huskies in the Trenton Regional, No. 3 Louisville in the Raleigh Regional and No. 4 Pittsburgh in the Oklahoma City Regional.
