But more than relying on experience to mentally prepare, Mississippi State (37-1) is tapping into their desire for redemption. Louisville won a share of the ACC regular season title and then won the ACC Tournament title. No. 1 seed Notre Dame slew its demon by ending a seven-game losing streak against CT, its longtime rival and the gold standard in women's basketball. For the second straight year and the second time in program history, Mississippi State will attempt to win a National Championship. The Bulldogs upset the undefeated UConn Huskies in the national semifinals previous year, but then fell to SC in the championship. The Cardinals have also won each game in the tournament by double digits and have beaten Notre Dame twice during the season. The Gamecocks and Huskies met in the Elite Eight, where UConn dominated, 94-65. The final score was 73-63. The Bulldogs may relish it. Louisville, meanwhile, would likely love the chance to play the team that beat it out for the conference - but the best dynasty in women's basketball history would be a nice consolation prize. The Cardinals went to the finals in 2009 and 2013 but lost both times to UConn. They haven't lost since a 69-58 setback at No. 1 UConn back on February 12 and made it to the Final Four for the third time in 11 years under coach Jeff Walz.
Guard Asia Durr has led the way for the Cardinals all season, winning ACC player of the year. Forwards Myisha Hines-Allen and Sam Fuehring also score in the double figures, averaging 14.1 and 10.1 points per contest, respectively. Senior guard Victoria Vivians was the leading scorer for the Bulldogs with 25 points. With all this firepower, this Final Four matchup could be a high scoring affair. After two misses by Louisville at the other end, the game headed to overtime.
The victor of this game will play for the national championship game on Sunday night at 6 p.m. on ESPN and play the victor of Notre Dame-UConn.
Now comes the hard part, in which the Bulldogs and Fighting Irish must find a way to level out mentally and emotionally before meeting in the championship game on Sunday evening.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
