Three No. 1 seeds — South Carolina, Stanford and UConn — and No. 3 seed Arizona have reached the Final Four. South Carolina and Stanford will face off in the first semifinal game on Friday followed by UConn against Arizona. The winners will then play for the national championship on Sunday.
In the Elite Eight, South Carolina routed Texas, Stanford blew past Louisville and Arizona pulled away late to top Indiana. Led by Paige Bueckers, who became the first freshman to win the AP women’s basketball player of the year award, UConn held on against Baylor after a controversial noncall at the buzzer.
Both Final Four games and the championship game will be played in the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas and broadcast on ESPN. Here’s what you need to know to watch the games without a cable or satellite subscription.
