Lady Volunteers edge out in-state Belmont to advance to Kansas showdown versus Louisville
The Tennesee Lady Volunteers basketball team (25-8) defeated Buffalo over the weekend, then edged out the surprise Nashville-based Belmont Bruins women’s team 70-67 on Monday afternoon at Thompson-Boling Arena in Knoxville to advance to the Sweet 16.
The Saturday afternoon matchup against the Louisville Cardinals women’s basketball team will take place at Intrust Bank Arena in Wichita, Kansas.
The winner of that game will head to the Elite Eight against either Michigan or South Dakota.
More Options For Women’s NCAA Basketball Odds During March Madness
FanDuel has consistently offered odds on in-state women’s basketball games throughout the regular season and will soon be accepting wagers in the highly anticipated game that could elevate the Lady Volunteers to an Elite Eight appearance in the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Tournament.
Other legal sportsbooks in Tennessee, including DraftKings, WynnBET, and TwinSpires have also entered the betting market now that NCAA women’s basketball playoff action is attracting mainstream attention.
The #4 seeded Lady Volunteers are expected to come in as underdogs versus the top-seeded Louisville women’s team, but anything could happen now that teams will be playing at the last venue in Wichita before the Final Four.
The eight-time national championship Lady Volunteers have not made a Final Four appearance since the departure of the late, great Pat Summitt.
Tennessee Volunteers Men’s Basketball Team Eliminated From NCAA Tournament
The men’s basketball team was upset last week by Michigan by a score of 76-68 during the second round, and have been eliminated altogether from March Madness contention.
There will be a new NCAA Men’s Basketball champion this year due to the Baylor Bears exit in the Second Round at the hands of the North Carolina Tarheels.
Sweet 16 action in the Men’s Tournament includes three #1 seeds along with an extremely surprising #15 seed Saint Peter’s Peacocks (21-11) team that upset the Kentucky Wildcats in the First Round.
The Peacocks are set for a Sweet 16 game against the Purdue Boilermakers at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia this coming Friday.
Although many NCAA basketball fans’ brackets have long since failed to achieve perfection, there is still plenty of excitement ahead for individuals who are keen on accurately predicting which teams will make it to the Final Four in both the men’s and women’s March Madness tournaments.
