The No. 3 NC State women’s team may not be on the same level of Cinderella story as that of their male counterparts as the No. 11 seed, with both Wolfpack teams making the Final Four, but they certainly have made noise since the Big Dance commenced.

 


The Lady Wolfpack began their journey by tearing through No. 14 Chattanooga (64-45) before dispatching No. 6 Tennessee in the second round by the score of 79-72. In the Sweet 16, they made short work of No. 2 Stanford (77-67) before upsetting No. 1 seed Texas (76-66) in the Elite Eight as 5 ½ point underdogs.

No. 1 South Carolina has the biggest target on their backs, installed as the prohibitive favorites before the tournament began and now entering the Final Four after jaw-dropping margins of victory over No. 16 Presbyterian (91-39) and No. 8 North Carolina (88-41) in the first two rounds. But No. 4 Indiana proved to be a tough out in a 79-75 decision followed by a solid, 70-58, Elite Eight victory over No. 3 Oregon State.

UConn women’s basketball is a powerhouse like the men’s team, also landing in the Final Four, and although its four victories leading to this point were not ostentatious, with the exception of their first-round decimation of No. 14 Jackson State (86-64), they have demonstrated the true grit that is emblematic of this year’s Huskies’ edition.

Victories over No. 6 Syracuse (72-64), No. 7 Duke, (53-45), and a gutsy win over No. 1 USC (80-73) have propelled UConn to a date with destiny and the Iowa Hawkeyes.

 


All eyes are on Caitlin Clark and the Iowa women’s basketball team after they avenged last year’s blowout championship loss to LSU by defeating the Tigers, 94-87, in their Elite Eight clash. It’s impossible to talk about this Iowa team, or even women’s college basketball this year, without mentioning Caitlin Clark’s stats.

 


The reigning Naismith Women’s College Player of the Year winner broke the college basketball career scoring record this season and is currently sitting with 3900 points over her four years in a Hawkeyes uniform.

Clark has been a force of nature throughout the season, and the postseason has been no exception. Clark has averaged 32.2 points, 10 assists, and 7.2 rebounds per game over her four tournament performances and is the odds-on-favorite to repeat as the Player of the Year before entering the WNBA Draft as the likely No. 1 overall pick of the Indiana Fever.
