UConn Huskies take on Mississippi State Bulldogs in Final Four showdown

After Morgan William hit an overtime buzzer beater to sink the Huskies and send the Bulldogs to the national championship game, Prescott erupted from his spot in the stands. But before then, they clashed in the SEC final on March 5, which was a close game until the Gamecocks took over in the fourth quarter, outscoring the Bulldogs 19-4.

"They haven't become what I hoped they would become - you know, like, edgy", he said. "They know now the prize now is in front of them; it's attainable".

"Maybe we're just not ready for this". Unfortunately, reality hit for them in the Final Four. Today they deserved to win, they beat us. UConn's bench players combined for a single point with four turnovers on Friday, while bigs Napheesa Collier and Gabby Williams tallied four fouls each and struggled at times to contend with the Bulldogs' size in the paint.

It was history. And Mississippi State was on the right side of it. "You walk in the locker room, there's not a lot of jumping around". The Gamecocks beat Stanford in the first semifinal. They overwhelmed SC in February. People doubted us. He (Vic Schaefer) was like be a team, be confident, and just play your game.

The basketball gods came to play.

But Gene Auriemma and company just didn't look like their normally dominant selves all night, and in the end, they left the door open just wide enough for Mississippi State to pull of the improbable upset in dramatic fashion. "The intangible part of it is really hard to get our focus in on it". "One play doesn't cost you a game". The Lady Vols also had to top UConn in the semifinals. The others: SEC's Tennessee over Georgia (1996), ACC's Maryland over Duke (2006), and Big East's UConn over Louisville (2009, '13).

It will be the third matchup for the two teams.

Stanford missed three shots on its next possession, and SC quickly extended the lead on freshman Tyasha Harris' one-handed bullet pass to Doniyah Cline, who was open under the basket for a layup. The Final Four this year is in Dallas, Texas, so it was likely a short drive for him. "She's got a bright future in basketball at the next level and we don't want to risk setting it back potentially with her coming here instead of rehabbing". "What an unbelievable, gutsy performance that no one in the country probably thought could happen".

Mississippi State will face SC in an all-SEC National Championship showdown on Sunday at 6 p.m. ET.
