FINAL FOUR: Bulldogs headed to Big D
Mississippi State's women continue to make history.
Two days after making the NCAA Elite Eight for the first time, the Bulldogs out-lasted the Baylor Bears 94-85 in overtime Sunday night to reach the Final Four.
The next stop in the postseason journey for MSU will be Dallas. The Bulldogs join Stanford, which began the first team to make the Final Four earlier in the day.
MSU's Morgan William had a career night with a 41-point outing and appeared to will her team to victory.
William and the Bulldogs were not going to be denied.
Mainly due to the scoring of Williams, MSU outscored Baylor 19-10 in overtime.
This is the first Final Four for the women. The men qualified for the Final Four in 1996 under head coach Richard Williams.
The Bulldogs now wait on their opponent in Dallas. Connecticut and Oregon played each other for the championship of the Bridgeport Regional Monday night.
