NCAA Women's Bracket 2012 Update: Michigan Falls To Oklahoma, 88-67

All three teams from the state of Michigan have already been eliminated from the 2012 NCAA women's basketball tournament. Eastern Michigan lost to South Carolina on Saturday, and Michigan State fell to Louisville that same day. Then, on Sunday night, Michigan was defeated by Oklahoma by a score of 88-67.

The Wolverines managed to keep things close against the Sooners for about five minutes. Then Oklahoma pulled away in front of its home crowd (the game was played at Oklahoma) and never looked back. Michigan was unable to get back in the game and saw its season to come an end as a result.

Carmen Reynolds led Michigan in scoring with 20 points. Three other Wolverines were in double digits on Sunday: Kate Thompson (15 points), Courtney Boylan (12 points) and Sam Arnold (11 points).

For Oklahoma, Aaryn Ellenberg led the way with 28 points on 10-of-18 shooting. The other four players in the starting lineup also scored in double digits. Morgan Hook had 13 points, while Whitney Hand had 12 points and Nicole Griffin and Kaylon Williams each had 10 points.

NCAA Women's Bracket 2012 Update: Michigan State Falls To Louisville

Like Eastern Michigan, Michigan State was eliminated in the first round of the 2012 NCAA women's basketball tournament in a game that was never really close.

The Spartans were down 39-23, and although they played better in the second half, the Cardinals won 67-55.

Louisville had four players score in double digits on Saturday. Shawnta' Dyer actually came off the bench to lead all scorers with 13 points. Becky Burke and Bria Smith each had 12 points, and Asia Taylor added 10 points of her own off the bench.

Michigan State's starting lineup amazingly only produced 18 points on Saturday. The Spartans' leading scorers were Klarissa Bell (12 points), Jasmine Hines (eight points) and Porschè Poole (eight points), all of whom came off the bench.

Louisville is now moving on to the second round to take on Maryland. The Terrapins beat Navy 59-44 to set up the second-round matchup.
