South Carolina and Stanford join UConn and Arizona in the Final Four of the NCAA Women's Tournament

The last two programs to round out the 2021 Women's Final Four in San Antonio were decided Tuesday following big wins from two of the tournament's No. 1 seeds. South Carolina zoomed by No. 6 Texas, and Stanford ran past No. 2 Louisville.

For Dawn Staley and her Gameco*cks, it was a defensive showing that secured their trip to the Final Four. In No. 1 seed South Carolina's 62-34 win over Texas, the Longhorns were held to a scoreless fourth quarter, missed 20 straight shots and limited to just shooting 23 percent from the field.

South Carolina wasn't without its offense, of course. Sophom*ore guard Zia Cooke led her side with 16 points, and also notched three assists and six rebounds. Destanni Henderson and Victoria Saxton each added 12 points.

Despite what would normally be considered an incredible shooting night from No. 2 Louisville -- and an incredible start with a 38-26 halftime lead -- the shots at the charity stripe were the difference in their 78-63 loss against Stanford. The Cardinals hit 52.6 percent of their 3-pointers (10 of 19) but shot just four free throws, making only one, to Stanford's 17. Lexie Hull led the way for Stanford with 21 points, and Haley Jones got a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds.

The stage is now set for the Final Four with South Carolina taking on Stanford, and UConn taking on Arizona.
