The field is being whittled down in the 2023 NCAA Women’s Tournament and we’re inching closer to the Final Four at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, TX.
There has already been some chaos in this year’s tournament. For the first time ever, two No. 1 seeds failed to make it out of the first weekend. And for the first time since 2007, UConn will not be in the Final Four, ending its streak of 14 straight trips.
Here’s a list of each team that’s advanced to the Women’s Final Four of the 2023 NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Championship. The national semifinals will take place on Friday, March 31 with the first game tipping off at 7 p.m. ET and the second game tipping off at 9:30 p.m. ET. Both games will be televised on ESPN and the time slots will be determined on Monday night.
Greenville 1 - South Carolina
Greenville 2 - LSU
Seattle 3 - Virginia Tech
Seattle 4 - Iowa
South Carolina: The defending champions used a massive second quarter to eventually power past Maryland and will now go back to the Final Four. Aliyah Boston, Brea Beal and Zia Cooke were the stars in this game, combining for 56 points.
LSU: The Tigers are heading to the Final Four for the first time since 2008, taking out No. 9 Miami in the Elite Eight on Sunday. LSU has locked in defensively throughout the tournament and has held each of its four opponents to under 40% shooting. Angel Reese has been a double-double machine and picked up her 32nd of the season on Sunday.
Iowa: The Hawkeyes are in the Final Four for the first time since 1993 and have done so on the back of Caitlin Clark. She delivered one of the greatest performances in NCAA Tournament history against Louisville on Sunday, putting up 41 points, 12 assists, and 10 rebounds in the Elite Eight win. It will be interesting to see if anyone can stop this wrecking machine in Dallas this weekend.
Virginia Tech: The Hokies took down Ohio State after the Buckeyes shocked UConn in the Sweet 16. Elizabeth Kitley lead the way for Virginia Tech with 25 points and 12 rebounds, while Georgia Amoore added 24 points. The Hokies now get LSU in the Final Four.
