Notre Dame vs. South Carolina

When: Sunday at 6:30 p.m.

Outlook: One of the keys will be how South Carolina's backcourt, led by all-American Tiffany Mitchell, matches up to Notre Dame's tandem of all-American Jewell Loyd, Lindsay Allen, and Michaela Mabrey. Coach Dawn Staley isn't sharing the Gamecocks' game plan. "This time around, they're going to have to make plays. Tiff is going to have to make plays for us."

Connecticut vs. Maryland

When: Sunday at 9 p.m.

Outlook: Led by Breanna Stewart, the two-time AP player of the year and two-time most outstanding player of the Final Four, the Huskies have run through the tournament. They won their first three games by an average of 47.6 points. Dayton gave UConn a bit of a challenge for the first 20 minutes and actually led at the half. Connecticut was undeterred and went on to win the regional final by 21 points. - Associated Press
