When the two best freshman (really players) in the game squared off in the Sweet 16 when UConn and Iowa clashed, the results were anticlimactic. At best. It wasn't even that the Hawkeyes' star guard Caitlin Clark played poorly. Quite to the contrary. She led her team with 21 points in an effort where Iowa scored 72. The problem was the Huskies just have a deeper roster who got contributions from everyone.

For example, going into the game, the headlines were all about UConn's star freshman Paige Bueckers. She played well scoring 18 points but was outdueled by her own teammate Christyn Williams who scored 27 as the Huskies cruised and won by 20. Coach Geno Auriemma called Williams "uncoachable" last year and after her inspired performance, you can tell she really took the criticism to heart over the weekend. Like the Huskies needed more chips on their shoulders to be dominant in this tournament.

Baylor will get the pleasure of trying to stop this UConn freight train when the Bears and Huskies meet in the Elite 8. But Baylor might just be that team with the knowhow to deploy the breaks on that train. They have won 20 games in a row. They haven't lost nearly three months ago and in their two losses their margin of defeat of nine points. Don't forget either that Baylor is technically the defending National Champs winning back in 2019. On top of that, Baylor has won every regular season in the Big 12 since 2010. They haven't missed the tourney since 2003. These Lady Bears are here to stay and have created a powerhouse of their own.

Elsewhere in the Sweet 16, the story was upsets. Texas beat Maryland on a late turnover that led to a layup that put the longhorns up for good. The upset on Saturday had the Hoosiers take down the first one seed to go down, NC State to reach their first ever Elite 8 appearance. Arizona accomplished the same feat by beating a higher seed Texas A&M.

In many years past we always can rely on the established programs to take home the hardware but this past weekend made all of that feels like there's some change brewing in the air. Can the underdogs bring even more madness to this March or will Baylor, UConn, Stanford or South Carolina have something to say about it? Bring on the Elite 8.
