Yet, the Irish prevailed 67 - 54 over Utah -- in a game that was in doubt at half-time and as late as eight minutes to go in the game when the Utes were within five points. The Irish were led by Skylar Diggins and Natalie Novosel with 20 points each.
Up next -- #10 seeded Temple who clobbered #7 seeded Arizona State 63 - 45. The game is scheduled for Monday -- still waiting on the time for the game. Here are link to the Salt Lake Tribune and Sports Illustrated stories -- along with a link to the NCAA Women's Bracket:
