NCAA Women's Final Four: Watch Louisville vs

FINAL FOUR Louisville vs. Mississippi State TONIGHT – Winner Plays For Title Mark Blankenbaker

Mississippi State would take full advantage, wearing down the Cardinals 73-63 in overtime.

Since so many fans want to see the Mississippi State vs. CT rematch, it's easy to overlook Mississippi State's semifinal opponent, Louisville. The Bulldogs upset the undefeated UConn Huskies in the national semifinals past year, but then fell to SC in the championship.

For the second-straight season, Mississippi State is headed back to the national championship game.

Mississippi State's Roshunda Johnson, though, drilled a huge 3-pointer with seven seconds left in the game to tie it up.

All four No. 1 seeds advanced to the Final Four of the 2018 Women's NCAA Tournament.

The Mississippi State Bulldogs will compete against the victor of Notre Dame and UConn.

They won't have to worry about the Gamecocks in this year's Final Four, with UConn beating SC 94-65 Monday night in the Albany Region final.

Not more than a minute later, it was still a one-point game.

"Last year's experience was great", said William, who became a celebrity thanks to her beast-slaying shot. Coach Vic Schaefer marked up the score sheet in silence. "In this game, we had a lot of people do things just right (Friday night)".

While she hit the game victor for Notre Dame, it was sophomore guard Jackie Young who was the leading scorer for the Fighting Irish with 32 points. "If it's overtime, we say it's our time, it's our game".

Victoria Vivians also got into 20 plus point territory, racking up 25 points until she eventually fouled out late in the game. That shot rattled out anyway, but the points stands.

The most monumental test for Louisville may be Mississippi State's 6-foot-7 Teaira McCowan, who has been terrific in the NCAA Tournament. Senior forward Myisha Hines-Allen, a third-team All-American selection, and junior forward Sam Fuehring have averaged double-digit scoring for the Cardinals in the tournament while also dominating the boards. I don't care where she plays after this. Neither Louisville nor Mississippi State has won a national championship, as both teams have finished as runners-up in each of their previous Final Four trips.
