— Here's what you need to know about the Sweet 16 of the NCAA women's tournament, and the "party crashers," BYU, according to USnews.com.

"You start to understand that the game is changing a little bit," UConn coach Geno Auriemma said. "It's not automatic anymore that if you're seeded higher you're going to win. It's been rewarding to see teams play great basketball and get rewarded with wins and having new teams in the regionals."

Sports Illustrated explains why UConn's path to the Final Four just got easier, thanks in part to BYU.
