NCAA Women's Tournament 2012 Bracket And Schedule: Saturday Starts Sweet 16 Stage

The 2012 NCAA Women's Tournament has reached the Sweet 16 stage, and the No. 1 Notre Dame Fighting Irish are still alive in the Raleigh Regional. Their matchup against the No. 5 St. Bonaventure Bonnies doesn't come until Sunday, but the other half of the tournament bracket advances teams to the Elite Eight on Saturday.

Out in the Fresno Regional, No. 3 St. John's tips off against No. 2 Duke, and No. 5 South Carolina hopes to make waves against top-seeded Stanford. Here is the tournament schedule for Saturday:
