Mississippi State advances to Women's Final Four

Since so many fans want to see the Mississippi State vs. CT rematch, it's easy to overlook Mississippi State's semifinal opponent, Louisville.

Friday night had been historic.

When the last day of the women's basketball season arrives, Mississippi State will be on the dance floor once again.

The women's basketball national championship will be Sunday, April 1. "We're all in, but this is just another game for us". Foul trouble was the only thing slowing her down. We were spent. That was all the emotion that we had.

"A lot of teams put two or three people on me, which will leave my teammates open, which I don't get, because my teammates are great players", Durr said. "UConn, of course, and just to get back here, it's a blessing". You feel like that should have been the championship game. The Bulldogs upset the undefeated UConn Huskies in the national semifinals past year, but then fell to SC in the championship.

The Mississippi State-Louisville game will be broadcast on ESPN2.

"It's all about the mind-set", McGraw said. They were here a year ago. "They all know how to score from anywhere on the court". Last year, the Bulldogs upset unbeaten UConn thanks to a Morgan William buzzer-beater. This year's Final Four will be played in Columbus, Ohio. They earned their No. 1 seed fair and square, and belong squarely in contention for this national title. The Cardinals guard you every bit as hard as the Bulldogs do.

Danberry provided. And this was the first time this writer has ever asked a ballplayer about his or her hair-do after a game. At this point in time, everyone's sore. When I look at them, you know, both our teams are very, very similar. "This year, we have that mentality of 'We don't care how you feel, we don't care how exhausted you are, how sore.' We have come together as a team and made a point to finish it off". Coach Vic Schaefer marked up the score sheet in silence. Only one of McGraw's active players, senior Kathryn beld, has been to a title game. It's a 40 minute game and Louisville will go on runs but MSU must keep Louisville from gaining momentum when their bench players check in. But living up to the program's history motivates the team as much as anything, guard Marina Mabrey said. She played all 45 minutes. McCowan also had 21 points to go along with her dominance on the boards, the second time in the NCAA tournament she has had at least 20 points and 20 rebounds in a game.

The loss ended a wonderful season for Louisville, which won the ACC regular season and conference tournament for the first time in school history. But if it was going to take us losing the ACC tournament to try to fix things and change things around, tighten up, for us to win a national championship, I'll take it. "We have one goal in mind, and our goal was not to beat U-Conn., our goal was to get a national championship".
