The marquee game of that Women's Final Four in Los Angeles was the semifinal between No. 1 seeds Stanford and Virginia, which the Cardinal won 66-65, ending Dawn Staley's college career. By the way, if seeds hold in this year's regional at Stanford, it will be VanDerveer's second-seeded Cardinal against Staley's top-seeded South Carolina team in the final.
Stanford starts this year's Big Dance in a rather unlikely place: Ames, Iowa, where the Cardinal open with South Dakota (ESPN2, 6:30 p.m. ET Saturday). And while Stanford is in the Midwest, South Carolina will be on the West Coast, opening against Cal State Northridge in Seattle (ESPN2, 5:30 p.m. ET Sunday).
Happy dancing, folks!
