First, at 6:00 p.m. ET on ESPN, Dawn Staley and the South Carolina Gamecocks will take on the Stanford Cardinal at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.  The Gamecocks defeated Texas 62-34, holding the Longhorns to a scoreless fourth quarter to earn their spot in the Final Four. While Stanford pulled off a 78-63 comeback win over Louisville to earn their 14th Final Four Appearance.

For the Gamecocks, this marks South Carolina’s third Final Four appearance and its first since winning the national title in 2017 which means Coach Staley, could potentially lead her program to a second national championship ahead of the Tokyo Olympics, where she will coach the U.S. women’s national basketball team in pursuit of its seventh straight gold medal.

Following the Stanford vs South Carolina game, the UConn Huskies looking for their 12th NCAA Championship will face the Arizona Wildcats who are in the Final Four for the first time.
