NCAA Women's Tournament Top Moments: Final Four

April 2

The champion will come from the Pac-12.

What a Final Four it was. No. 1 seeds Stanford and South Carolina faced off in a thrilling battle that went down to the wire, and then 3-seed Arizona upset 1-seed UConn in dominant fashion.

Here are the top moments and plays from the Final Four in the NCAA Women's Tournament.

No. 1 Stanford Cardinal vs. No. 1 South Carolina Gamecocks
Result: Stanford wins 66-65

Hull hits from deep

Stanford's Lexie Hull connected from way downtown to keep the Cardinal's scoring streak going strong.

Brink block

Cameron Brink leads the nation in blocks by a freshman, and at 6-foot-5, she stood tall to deny the Gamecocks points.

Cooke is cooking

South Carolina's Zia Cooke was sinking shots from all over the court, highlighted by her unstoppable buckets from 3.

Holy Henderson

The Gamecocks' Destanni Henderson came up clutch late, giving her team the lead with the final seconds ticking down.

Jonesin' for a win

Stanford's Haley Jones snagged a rebound in heavy traffic and put it up to steal the lead, which the Cardinal never relinquished.

No. 3 Arizona Wildcats vs. No. 1 UConn Huskies
Result: Arizona wins 69-59

Alright, Aari

Arizona's Aari McDonald could not be contained, going off early to lead the Wildcats.

But really, though. In the paint and behind the arc, McDonald was a bucket.

Nothing but net

We'll just leave this here.

How about that Arizona defense?

There's one word to describe the Wildcat D, and it's relentless. Arizona held one of the top offenses in the nation, led by freshman phenom Paige Bueckers, to just 22 points in the first half.

Patience is key

Arizona's whole squad was dominant. We can't stop watching this smooth move in the paint.

Still in the fight

UConn did not go down quietly. Bueckers snagged the rebound, and Christyn Williams connected for two on the other end.

Stunner complete

The Huskies fought valiantly but could not claw their way back. Now, Bueckers & Co.'s journey to the 2021 title is finished, and the Wildcats are moving on.
