The Mississippi State Bulldogs were the team no one expected to see in the finals. They were expected to get knocked out in the Elite Eight round against Baylor, but managed to eek out the win. The Bulldogs real upset happened in the Final Four against UConn. The Huskies had been on a 111 game winning-streak that stretched back to 2014. Mississippi State fought through to overtime and Morgan William delivered with her buzzer beating shot. They definitely deserved to be in the finals after that 66-64 win.
South Carolina faced their share of challenges, too, throughout the tourney. The Gamecocks played well against Stanford in their Final Four game. Allisha Gray really came up big for her team and scored 18 points in the semifinals. A’ja assisted her teammates with an impressive 19 rebounds during the game. Tonight, it came down to her once again with the win, and the girls could not have looked more thrilled to holding up the championship trophy!
