This season sees Iowa in their first Final Four appearance in three decades.
LSU Rallies to Beat Virginia Tech
LSU rallied to beat Virginia Tech 79-72 thanks to a stellar performance from Alexis Morris, who scored 27 points. Angel Reese scored 24 points and had 12 rebounds. It marks the first time LSU has reached the national championship game, having suffered five consecutive national semifinal losses in the 2004-08 era. LSU will play against Iowa.
Final Thoughts on the Game
The game between Iowa and South Carolina did not disappoint, lived up to the hype, and thrilled the crowd that turned out to watch a terrific contest. South Carolina’s Aliyah Boston struggled with her performance, having only scored eight points and ten overall rebounds due to Iowa’s tight defensive play. LSU, meanwhile, caught fire midway through their game against Virginia Tech to produce an amazing turn of events and make it to the national championship.
