LOS ANGELES (AP) - Jordin Canada scored 21 points and Japreece Dean added 16 points to lead third-seeded UCLA to an 86-64 victory over No. 11 seed Creighton in the second round of the women's NCAA Tournament. UCLA (26-7) reaches the Sweet 16 for the third consecutive year and advances to the Kansas City Regional and will face Texas on Friday.

NEW YORK (AP) - From 11 pairs of sisters to a mother-daughter combination, the women's NCAA Tournament is a family affair. Carly Fabbri plays for a Quinnipiac team coached by her mother, Tricia. Says daughter Carly: "Just being able to have the opportunity to play for her has been awesome."

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - The only thing Bill Self was pleased about from the Jayhawks' first-round win in the NCAA Tournament was the fact that they won. He wasn't a whole lot more impressed with their second-round win. So as they head to Omaha, Nebraska, for the regional semifinals against Clemson, Self is hopeful that the best is yet to come. Kansas will play the red-hot Tigers on Friday night.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - The NCAA Tournament has an altered landscape for the Sweet 16 after losing four of its top eight seeds. Top seeds Virginia and Xavier are gone, along with 2-seeds North Carolina and Cincinnati. That leaves Villanova and Kansas as the remaining No. 1 seeds, while No. 11 seeds Syracuse and Loyola-Chicago are the surprise teams vying to make it to San Antonio for the Final Four.
