2012 NCAA Women's Tournament: Baylor Faces Florida In Second Round

The undefeated Baylor Bears women's basketball team continues its run to the NCAA Tournament championship with a second-round match-up against the Florida Gators Tuesday night.

Florida has made it no secret that the challenge of knocking off the best team in the nation is something they look forward to. Actually, Florida's Azania Stewart doesn't at all seem overly-impressed with Baylor's Brittney Griner.

"I've played overseas against Olympians who are just as big and just as skilled as her," Stewart said. "I've had experience against players like that, so I'm confident and ready."

The Gators' aggressive defense and physicality surprised Ohio State in the opening round, which led to a Florida victory. But the Bears have been welcoming their opponents' heaviest punch all season.

"We want everyone's best shot," Baylor forward Destiny Williams said. "It only helps us personally to be a better team and help us with the things we need to work on."

Tipoff: 6:05 pm CST Tuesday, Mar 20
