NCAA Tournament: Sweet Sixteen in Full Swing
With the NCAA women's basketball tournament in full swing, WNBA stars are putting their hoops expertise on the line. For starters you can peruse the heavily alma mater and family related prognostication of Nneka Ogwumike (LA Sparks and Stanford) below. Additionally, Indiana Fever superstar Tamika Catchings kept it in the family by volunteering Tennessee as the eventual champion, and Chicago Sky post-presence Sylvia Fowles joined President Obama in predicting another UConn title.
While on the subject of Ogwumike's, Nneka's younger sister Chiney isn't just talented on the court for Stanford, but also explores her musical passions elsewhere on campus in support of Nerd Nation. Enjoy the newest YouTube sensation below and be sure to check back to WNBA.com for the 2014 Draft, where Chiney may indeed join her big sister in the professional women's basketball ranks.
In addition to Ogwumike and Stanford reaching the Sweet Sixteen, undefeated Connecticut and also-undefeated Notre Dame also advanced. Odyssey Sims-led led Baylor also reached the second weekend of play. Check out the full list below and the bracket on espnW.
