2013 Women's NCAA bracket results: Notre Dame, Louisville complete Final Four

USA TODAY Sports

Notre Dame and Louisville join UConn and Cal in the Final Four.

The Women's NCAA Tournament Final Four is set. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish and Louisville Cardinals filled out the national semifinal field on Tuesday for next week's championship in New Orleans.

Notre Dame, the No. 1 seed in the Norfolk regional, earned its third-straight trip to the Final Four with an 87-76 win over the No. 2-seeded Duke Blue Devils. Skylar Diggins was not at her best Tuesday, especially early, but she still scored 24 points to send the Fighting Irish into a Final Four match-up against a familiar foe, the Connecticut Huskies. Notre Dame is 3-0 against the Huskies this season, but the series is much closer than that would indicate. Notre Dame won two of the games in regulation by a combined three points. The third win was a 96-87 win in three overtimes.

The Cardinals, seeded No. 5 in the Oklahoma City regional, punched their Final Four ticket with an 86-78 win over the No. 2 Tennessee Volunteers. Louisville built a lead as large as 20 points Tuesday, much like it did in Sunday's upset over the No. 1 Baylor Bears, before the Volunteers came back. But Tennessee would not get any closer than two points.

Louisville, whose only other Final Four appearance resulted in a loss at the 2009 national championship game to UConn, will play the California Golden Bears, the No. 2 seed out of the Spokane regional, in the Final Four.
