HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ The Oklahoma women's team knows who its opponent will be in this Sunday's Sweet 16 game in Dayton, Ohio.

Mississippi employed stifling defense and scored 42 points off 29 Maryland turnovers as the Rebels upset the #2 seed Terrapins 89-78 Tuesday night.

Armintie Price scored 28 points to lead the Rebels, the same Ole Miss team that was blown out by the Terps 110-79 at a tournament in the Bahamas in November.

Mississippi will play OU in the Dayton Regional semifinals. The 3rd-seeded Sooners beat Marquette 78-47 on Monday.

Kristi Toliver led Maryland (28-6) with 24 points.
