South Carolina is heading into the Final Four, maintaining an undefeated season after getting past Oregon State with a 70-58 win Sunday afternoon.

While it turned into a double-digit win, things were far from easy for the Gamecocks in the Elite 8. A trio of Beavers scored in double figures, including Raegan Beers delivering 16 points and 3 blocks while leading OSU.

Fortunately, South Carolina had an answer any time Oregon State threatened. Despite finishing 4-for-20 from 3-point range and just 33% from the field as a team, Tessa Johnson delivered a massive 15 points off the bench. Kamilla Cardoso and Bree Hall also reached double figures for South Carolina.

What’s at stake

South Carolina is back in the Final Four for a 4th straight season since the 2020 NCAA Tournament was canceled due to COVID. 3 of the 4 tournament wins this time around have come by double digits after a close call against Indiana in the Sweet 16.

The Gamecocks are now 36-0 overall and are looking to complete their first-ever perfect season. South Carolina already has 2 national titles under Dawn Staley but has never finished a season undefeated. The most recent perfect season in women’s college basketball came in the 2015-16 season when the UConn Huskies finished 38-0 behind Breanna Stewart.

However, South Carolina will be on high alert after falling in the Final Four with a similar 36-0 record a season ago. Iowa won that game in a thriller with Caitlin Clark delivering 41 points, 8 assists and 6 rebounds to reach the national championship game.

South Carolina is the first team to punch a Final Four ticket in the women’s bracket and will await the winner of Texas vs. NC State in the national semifinals. In the other Elite 8 matchups, USC will face UConn and Iowa will face LSU. There is still a chance all 4 No. 1 seeds will be standing in the Final Four.
