Women’s March Madness Elite 8 live updates: South Carolina in action

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?

The second set of Elite Eight games tips off with No. 1 South Carolina — the defending national champions — playing No. 2 Maryland (7 p.m. ET on ESPN). The Gamecocks are aiming to be the first repeat women’s basketball champion since Connecticut won four straight national titles from 2013-16. Maryland last reached the Final Four in 2015, and boast a national championship of their own in 2006.

Then, No. 1 Virginia Tech will play 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.

Aliyah Boston has South Carolina on the brink of another Final Four appearance.

The Maryland Terrapins are not making it easy for the South Carolina Gamecocks to reach the Final Four and are up 21-15 at the end of the first quarter. The Terrapins scored 12 unanswered points toward the end of the period as Dawn Staley’s team failed to find a rhythm. South Carolina’s Laeticia Amihere finally broke the streak with a pair of free throws.
