When: 2:30 p.m.

Where: RBC Center, Raleigh, N.C.


Winner faces: Louisville-Baylor winner Monday in Raleigh

The game: When these two teams met a year ago in the same round of the NCAA tournament, the Terrapins triumphed, 80-66, behind the post play of Crystal Langhorne and Laura Harper, who combined for 39 points and 13 rebounds. Both are in the WNBA, but Maryland (30-4) should still have an edge inside with 6-foot-1 junior Dee Liles and 6-4 freshman Lynetta Kizer. Vanderbilt forward Hannah Tuomi missed the previous six games with a stress fracture in her left ankle, and that has led the Commodores (26-8) to start four guards and one forward. The last, senior Christina Wirth, is the only player taller than 6 feet. Maryland out-rebounded its first two NCAA opponents by a combined 106-58.
