Women's basketball: South Carolina beats Stanford 62-53 in Final Four

02 April, 2017, 00:52 | Author: Patsy Dennis

That gives SC a different look than they had with the big lineup that we faced. The Gamecocks took a 41-37 lead into the final period after scoring 21 points in the third, one more than the entire first half. Now four conferences each have one team: the SEC (South Carolina), the West Coast (Gonzaga), the Pac-12 (Oregon) and the Atlantic Coast (North Carolina).

"It's fantastic", Scott said. The last loss came to Notre Dame in 2012 in the Final Four. Though not traditionally a lock-down defensive team, they've limited opponents to just 60.9 points per game this season, fifth-best in the NCAA.

Gonzaga got to the Final Four after an incredible shooting performance over the Xavier Musketeers.

The total has gone over in seven of North Carolina's last 10 NCAA tournament games. In the first half, the Gamecocks simply could not hit shots. Stanford led 33-26 before SC scored the next 11 points to take a 37-33 lead on Doniyah Cliney's layup with 2:43 left in the third.

Can the Gamecocks continue their run all the way to a national title?

"I do think you have to have some guys that can make 3-point shots". They might as well win another two games and finish this thing off, right?

The front runner is Moon Jae-in , a veteran lawmaker who lost to Park in 2012, and is now leading in early polls. It has not yet been confirmed whether Park will be offered exclusivity as her imprisoned predecessors.

Player of the half II: South Carolina's Wilson. It took a rare 50-50 ball won in the air by Wilson to pull Stanford out of the way for a signature burst to the basket and layup to put SC up 45-40, the moment notable for its rarity. He also is a senior account executive for Gamecock IMG Sports Marketing.

So exciting! Gonzaga and SC are each making their very first Final Four appearances, and both teams will be battling hard for a chance to play for the NCAA National Championship.

And then the neighborhood that raised me, Little Havana, my neighbors, you know, we all raised each other. "I tell him at least this is better than calling in sick".

His best argument is that the Zags don't have to do anything they haven't done before to beat SC in the semifinals Saturday and either North Carolina or OR on Monday in the title game.

"That was just a crushing blow", Scott said. "We had to figure them out and create, get easy buckets and get into transition", Staley said.

How did Martin turn around the program?

"We've got to limit their touches in the paint as much as we can, which is a very hard task since they run so many things to get the ball inside to Meeks and Hicks and Bradley", Oregon coach Dana Altman said. He added that he's come a long way since calling Turf Bowl games with former Marshall professor Ed McCarnes on Marshall student station WMUL. "I said, 'Huh? What is wrong with you?" The Gamecocks shot just 36.5 percent from the floor, but made 10 more free throws than the Cardinal.
