Virginia Tech vs Ohio State

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.
