  • Oregon's Sabrina Ionescu drives past Baylor's DiDi Richards in the NCAA Final Four game in Tampa on Friday April 5th 2019

She led the Ducks to their first Final Four this season, along with the Pac-12 regular-season championship. At almost 42 percent, OR leads the nation in 3-point shooting percentage, and they're likely to take advantage of that Friday, stretching out Baylor's defense. Chloe Jackson delivered a go-ahead layup with 39 seconds left, and Brown and Cox finished out the victory with free throws for the overall No. 1 seed.

Ionescu led the Ducks with 18 points to go along with five assists and four rebounds.

Landrum played all but one minute Friday night, attempting two of Baylor's three unsuccessful 3-pointers. It was typical of a Bears team that averaged just 3.2 3-pointers per game this season. They closed the first quarter with a 15-4 run, and the teams traded highlight reel-worthy plays - a powerful block by Cox here, another 3 from Boley there - to swap the lead until halftime.

Sabrina Ionescu entered Oregon's matchup with Baylor as a career 43% shooter from the 3-point line, so if she found that hot hand late, it might've equaled a semifinal exit for the Lady Bears, who ended up defeating the Ducks 72-67.

"I'm really proud of our team, no question about it". She missed a layup that would have given her team the lead in the final minute as the Ducks misfired on 12 of their last 13 shots.

Baylor went into the locker room down 34-33. "No magical words", Mulkey said.

She allegedly was told by "Charles" to talk to Trump's family about Chinese-American economic relations. In a case that renewed concerns about security at Trump's private club in Florida , the U.S.


"I'm going to be still hurt, even in a couple of years I'll be hurt because I know we belong up there, we belong in the final game", forward Satou Sabally said. "We saw bits and pieces of it here and there". Ionescu shot 6 for 24. "We've never seen it before, '" Brown said about her chemistry with Cox. The top-seeded Bears proved Friday night in a 72-67 win over No. 2 OR that they can clench their jaws and hold off a fearless, hot-shooting opponent down the stretch just as well as they crushed overmatched ones by halftime.

OR was one of the best 3-point shooting teams in the nation this season, but was just 12-of-32 from behind the arc and shot 36.8 percent overall. We've got a lot coming back.

We have unfinished business.And I mean that from the bottom of my heart.

OR actually got off 11 more shots than the Lady Bears, but shot just 37 percent for the game and 36 percent on 2-point field goals. The Walnut Creek, Calif., product scored 18 points in the loss on Friday.

Boley drained a 3-pointer to give OR a 55-52 lead with 1:10 remaining in the third quarter before Brown answered with a jumper on the next possession.

She whipped around and gave Richards an ice-cold stare for just a moment before her teammates picked her up.
