SPOKANE -- The Gonzaga women's basketball team will face Louisville in the Sweet 16 this weekend in Spokane.

The Cardinals, the seven-seed, took down Xavier, the two-seed, 75-65 on Tuesday night. The Musketeers led the game by as many as nine-points late in the second half, but the Cardinals closed the game on a 21-5 run to advance.

Gonzaga (30-4) and Louisville (22-12) have never played each other before. It's the Cardinals' third ever trip to the Sweet 16 (last making it there in 2009), while the Bulldogs are in the Sweet 16 for the second straight year.

Gonzaga and Louisville play on Saturday at Veterans Memorial Arena. Tip-off is scheduled for 6pm. You can watch the game live on ESPN.
