The Women’s Sweet 16 is here and USA Today Sports’ Tony Anderson previews some of the top matchups that fans are eagerly looking forward to. All four top seeds in the women’s NCAA Tournament are still in contention, with South Carolina set to face Indiana and Texas taking on Gonzaga on Friday.

The tournament will be broadcast on ESPN and ABC, and the schedule for Friday’s games includes Notre Dame vs. Oregon State, South Carolina vs. Indiana, Stanford vs. NC State, and Texas vs. Gonzaga. Fans can tune in to watch these exciting games as the top teams in women’s college basketball compete for a spot in the Elite Eight.

Notre Dame will play Oregon State Beavers in the opening game of the Sweet 16 on Friday at 2:30 p.m. ET. The Fighting Irish have had an impressive run so far, while Oregon State has shown strength with their high field goal percentage and strong defense.

South Carolina is the undefeated top seed and has been dominant so far, but Indiana has shown strength with their high field goal percentage and strong defense. The Gamecocks will face off against Indiana on Friday at 7:30 p.m., while Texas takes on Gonzaga at 9:30 p.m., both matches will take place at Key Arena in Seattle, Washington. Freshman Madison Booker has been impressive in her debut tournament for Texas, but they are playing without key players which might give them an advantage over Gonzaga who also advanced in men’s tournament but without their star player Jalen Suggs who opted out after leading his team to win national championship last year .
