2012 Women's NCAA Tournament: Kansas Upsets Delaware, Advances To Sweet 16

There's room for Cinderella in the Sweet 16, much to the delight of Kansas basketball fans. The Jayhawks advanced to the Sweet 16 in the 2012 Women's NCAA Tournament on Tuesday night, as they upset the Delaware Fightin' Blue Hens, 70-64.

The eleventh-seeded Jayhawks were led by Angel Goodrich, who scored 27 points in Kansas' upset victory. Goodrich also added six assists, four rebounds and two steals.

Kansas trailed Delaware at halftime by six points, but managed to hold Delaware to just 27 second half points as the Jayhawks were able to mount their comeback.

Elena Delle Donne did everything she could to stop the upset, as she scored 34 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in the losing effort for Delaware.

The Jayhawks now head to Des Moines for regional finals action, as they take on the No. 2 seed Tennessee Lady Vols in the Sweet 16.
