Xavier Roger


Half of the women’s NCAA Tournament Final Four field is set. The other half will be settled Monday night.

Who will join Iowa and LSU in Dallas?

No. 1 South Carolina — the defending national champions — beat the second-seeded Maryland Terrapins. The Gamecocks are aiming to be the first repeat women’s basketball champion since Connecticut won four straight national titles from 2013-16.

Next up, No. 1 Virginia Tech faces No. 3 Ohio State (9 p.m. ET on ESPN). The Hokies have never reached the Final Four. The Buckeyes, meanwhile, last made the Final Four in 1993 when three-time Olympic gold medalist, WNBA champin and future Hall of Famer Katie Smith was a freshman.
