You would think that in one of the NCAA's premier events, every detail would be covered. However, that wasn't the case on Sunday when the Texas women squared off with NC State in the Elite 8.

Somehow, the 3-point line measurements were different on each end of the floor. That discrepancy on the court in Portland didn't stop the game from being played, though.

In fact, after both 3-point lines were measured before the game, NC State coach Wes Moore and Texas coach Vic Schaefer conferred and decided to play the game with the lines as they were. After all, there was no other choice but to use tape to put down new lines. Either way, it is truly a bad look for the NCAA as an oversight like that should never happen, especially in such a high-profile event.

Naturally, fans across the nation had a field day with the news. Much of that ridicule had to do with the fact that no one in charge seemed to notice the problem until Sunday despite a weekend's worth of games having already been played on that court.

Monday’s matchup between UConn and USC is still set to be played in Portland. Therefore, it remains to be seen if the NCAA will fix this embarrassing issue overnight though one would hope so.

Currently, the No. 3 seeded Wolfpack lead the No. 1 seeded Longhorns 47-35 in the 3rd quarter. The teams are a combined 7-12 from 3-point range. That includes only 1-3 shooting from deep by Texas.
