Notre Dame beats UConn, will face Mississippi State in NCAA Women's Championship

  • NCAA women's Final Four: UConn-Miss. St.; Notre Dame-Louisville in battles of #1 seeds

In overtime, the Bulldogs asserted themselves and Morgan William, who hit the game-winning shot in OT previous year in the Final Four to end UConn's 111-game winning streak, made two free throws in the last minute to help Mississippi State (37-1) pull away.

The Cardinals lost to Florida State during ACC play and to UConn in a non-conference showdown, but those are Louisville's only two losses this season.

The No. 1 Bulldogs (36-1) will play in their second straight national semifinal at 7 p.m. ET Friday, taking on a fellow top seed in the Louisville Cardinals (36-2). They just know they have to stay focused on the task at hand - winning a national championship.

Coincidentally, Mississippi State's only loss this season was also to SC in the SEC Tournament title game.

"They're extremely multi-dimensional, multi-talented, can do a lot of things to hurt you", the Mississippi State coach said. Louisville defeated Notre Dame, who also made the women's Final Four, 74-72, in the ACC Tournament championship on March 4.

Louisville is making its third Final Four appearance in the women's NCAA Tournament.

Louisville junior guard Asia Durr led the Cardinals with 18 points. The Gamecocks and Huskies met in the Elite Eight, where UConn dominated, 94-65. The Bulldogs' lone finals appearance came last season versus SC.

Mississippi State beat Nicholls, Oklahoma State, N.C. State and UCLA by an average of 22.5 points to win the Kansas City region.

Mississippi State would take full advantage, wearing down the Cardinals 73-63 in overtime. McCowan played every single minute of the game.

The Lady Bulldogs are among the favorites now, and they want the opportunity to play Notre Dame or rematch UConn in the finals.

Victoria Vivians led the Bulldogs with 25 points in the win.

But, despite those 46 combined points and 29 total rebounds, the Bulldogs were down by three with seconds left at the end of regulation.

Mississippi State reached overtime after a frantic final sequence where Johnson hit the game-tying shot, Louisville's Myisha Hines-Allen went coast to coast and missed a layup and Jazmine Jones just missed the buzzer on a put-back.

The women's basketball national championship will be Sunday, April 1.
