Women's NCAA Bracket 2012: Baylor, Stanford Roll Into Final Four

The 2012 NCAA Women's Tournament has been far more unpredictable than its male counterpart, and that continued on Monday night in the first half of the Elite Eight.

No. 1 Baylor, who haven't been threatened very much this season, weren't threatened again in their matchup against No. 2 Tennessee either. Some choppiness aside, it was a relatively easy 77-58 victory for Baylor, who advance to the Final Four as the presumptive favorite.

The second game on Monday also featured the top two seeds of the region with No. 1 Stanford and No. 2 Duke. A dominant performance by Nneka Ogwumike (29 points 17 rebounds) led the Cardinal to a 81-69 victory.

There will be two more games on Tuesday night to decide the rest of the Final Four. No. 2 Maryland matches up with No. 1 Notre Dame and No. 2 Kentucky against No. 1 Connecticut.
