Tipping Off: Second half of Final Four field to be decided

Half the women's Final Four field is complete after two thrilling games.

The other two spots in Dallas will be decided Monday night when UConn faces upstart Oregon and South Carolina plays Florida State.

It took a huge second-half rally and one last defensive stop for Stanford to beat Notre Dame, sending the Cardinal to the national semifinals for the first time since 2014.

"It's an amazing feeling to be back, and we're ready to play," said Stanford senior Karlie Samuelson.

She hopes to be joined by her sister Katie Lou Samuelson, who has starred for UConn this season.

The Cardinal will play the winner of the South Carolina-Florida State...
