Old Dominion forward Shahida Williams and her Monarchs face the No.  1 team in the nation.

This region features the top overall seed and its conference rival. But before those two can clash again, they must get past rematches against teams that they defeated during the regular season. This foursome boasts six national championships (five for Connecticut, one for Old Dominion) and 13 Final Fours.

No. 1 Connecticut vs.

No. 5 Old Dominion

UConn, the top overall seed, is in the Sweet 16 for the 15th consecutive season. Freshman forward and Big East player of the year Maya Moore (17.9 ppg, 7.6 rpg) leads the Huskies, who have won 28 of their past 30 NCAA Tournament games. Senior guard T.J. Jordan (13.0 ppg) leads a balanced attack for ODU, which lost to UConn 86-43 early in the season. The Monarchs are in the field as Colonial champs for the 17th year in a row.

No. 2 Rutgers vs.

No. 6 George Washington

Guard Epiphanny Prince (14.1 ppg) is shooting 55 percent from 3-point range in eight career tournament games for Rutgers, which seeks to reach the Final Four via the Greensboro Region for the second straight year. The Scarlet Knights played 10 games against the other Sweet 16 teams in the regular season. George Washington lost to Rutgers 67-42 in December. Atlantic 10 player of the year Kimberly Beck averages 12.8 points and 6.3 assists per game for the Colonials.
