NCAA Women's Tournament 2011: Sweet 16 Pairings Set

The Sweet 16 is set after Tuesday's action in the NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament. There are a few surprises, but all four No. 1 seeds -- Connecticut, Tennessee, Baylor and Stanford -- are still alive.

There were a handful of upsets on Tuesday, the biggest probably being No. 7 Louisville knocking off No. 2 Xavier, 85-75, in the Spokane Region. That bracket also featured what might have been the biggest upset of the tournament when No. 11 Gonzaga knocked No. 3 UCLA on Monday, 89-75.

A pair of six seeds knocked off three seeds in other Tuesday night upsets. Oklahoma defeated Miami, 88-83, in the Dayton Region and Georgia defeated Florida, 61-59, in the Dallas Region
