#1 The two number ones gather for the Women’s Final Four on Friday night at the Alamodome in San Antonio the No.1 South Carolina Gamecocks (26-4) who bring in a seven game win streak most recently defeated No.6 Texas (21-10) and that game wasn’t even close 62-34. Will South Carolina’s defense have to be something to be concerned about for No.1 Stanford Cardinal (29-2).
#2 The Cardinal are coming off a come back win against the Louisville Cardinals 78-63. The Cardinal were behind by 12 points at half time but bounced right back in the third and fourth quarters to get the 78-63 win.
#3 For Louisville their only scorer to finish in double figures was guard Dana Evans with 24 points for Evans it had to be tough doing all the lifting against a solid Stanford defense in the second half.
#4 The second half of Tuesday night’s game was the difference and the fourth quarter the Cardinal allowed the Cardinals to score only 13 points once again the Cardinal defense shutdown their opponent and got them in the next round.
#5 So it’s South Carolina and Stanford in the Final Four always exciting to get there and the Cardinal and head coach Tara VanDerveer have been itching to win a Final Four how do you like Stanford’s chances against South Carolina on Friday night.
