For the first time since 2016, the Tennessee Lady Vols are back in the Sweet 16. It took a dramatic win in the round of 32 to get here, as Belmont took the game to the wire. The Bruins missed a couple of key free throws in the closing moments, and freshman guard Sara Puckett buried a corner three to put the Lady Vols ahead late.
Tennessee has now made the trip to Wichita, Kansas, set to face the No. 1 seed Louisville Cardinals. Louisville had beaten Albany and Gonzaga to advance this far, carrying a 27-4 record into the matchup.
The winner here will advance to the Elite Eight, facing the winner of Michigan-South Dakota.
Louisville head coach Jeff Walz is making his tenth trip to the Sweet 16, looking to make his seventh trip to the Elite Eight. He holds a 412-111 record during his time at Louisville, which now spans 15 years.
