Virginia Tech in Final Four

Xavier Roger


Half of the women’s NCAA Tournament Final Four field was set on Sunday. The other half was settled Monday night.

The South Carolina Gamecocks and Virginia Tech Hokies 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.

In the night’s second game, another No. 1 seed, Virginia Tech fended off No. 3 seed Ohio State, 84-74. 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 champion and future Hall of Famer Katie Smith was a freshman.
