Connecticut's Maya Moore.

The updates that have followed in the wake of the March 18 blog "Our March Madness Predictions: A Prelude to Humiliation...," which shared choices in the men's and women's NCAA basketball tournament made by my daughter Lora and me, have been grim at times. Last night, though, the news was better when it came to the pair of women's Elite Eight contests, if resolutely unsurprising. Connecticut took it easy on Arizona State, only winning by nineteen points, while Oklahoma outlasted Purdue, giving us a 2-0 record for the evening. Ah, sweet relief. Here's our updated bracket:
