The Final Four in the women's NCAA Tournament features nothing but No. 1 seeds. None of the No. 1 seeds were even remotely challenged in any of their games thus far in the tournament, their Elite Eight contests included. All of them destroyed No. 2 seeds in their regional finals. Chalk, chalk and more chalk.
The Notre Dame Fighting Irish and UConn Huskies filled out the Final Four with their wins on Tuesday night. This is the fifth consecutive appearance in the Final Four for Connecticut, an incredible feat considering that this year's team has just one senior. That one senior, Tiffany Hayes, had a big 22-point performance in UConn's 80-65 win over Kentucky in their Elite Eight matchup. UConn shot 51 percent from the floor and out-rebounded Kentucky 37-21.
As lopsided as that game was, the later regional final was even worse. Notre Dame absolutely laid waste to the Maryland Terrapins, defeating them 80-49. Skylar Diggans led all scorers with 22 points while grabbing 10 rebounds and dishing out 11 dimes for a spectacular triple-double. She also had five of her team's 10 steals.
The Final Four kicks off on Sunday, April 1, and the championship game will be played the following Tuesday.
