OK, now Vanderbilt's in the Sweet 16

Yesterday, we prematurely announced the Lady Dores were in the Sweet 16. No, it's just like the men's tournament — you've got to win two games, and that's what they did last night by pounding Kansas State 74-61. Jennifer Risper (above) slashed to the basket for 27 points. Now they're in.

Want to hear something weird? If LSU and Florida women lose tonight to higher seeds as expected then the Lady Dores will be the only SEC team to make either the men's or women's Sweet 16. While No. 4 Vandy was dispatching the No. 5 Wildcats, No. 2 Auburn was getting destroyed by No. 7 Rutgers.

Anyway, this weekend the Dores will play the winner of tonight's Maryland-Utah contest.
