In a game which had 12 lead changes and 12 ties, OR falls to Baylor by a 72-67 final on Friday during the Final Four in Tampa, Florida.

The opening semifinal at sold-out Amalie Arena was billed as old school vs. new school - a matchup of contrasting styles, with Baylor hoping to exploit a size advantage inside with an imposing frontcourt of the 6-foot-7 Brown and 6-4 Cox, and OR looking to test the Bears' ability to defend the 3-point line.

"It's terrible not being able to play", Sabally said with tearful eyes in the locker room after Friday's game. Cox made a pair of free throws to push Baylor's lead to 71-67 with 18 seconds left.

The Ducks led 34-33 at halftime after a four-point play by Ionescu with eight seconds remaining. OR was going to rely on the 3-point shot. There was never a question what OR and Baylor's game plans were going to be in their Final Four matchup Friday night. It put Baylor up for good 69-67 in a game that featured 12 ties and 12 lead changes.

Brown and Cox were able to notch a few more points, but Ionescu closed the quarter on a six point run including a make just before half over Richards where the Ducks drew a foul.

There was nothing OR was throwing at the All-America post player that she hadn't seen this season. "And I think we shocked a lot of people and I'm so proud of all my teammates". She led the team by far with 311 assists and Offensively hit 44 percent from the floor and 42 percent from beyond the arc.

" "Perseverance" was a big word", Mulkey said.

"I really thought that we had a chance to win that game - and even to win it all".

Baylor hasn't lost since before Christmas and trounced its first four opponents in the NCAA tournament by an average of just over 38 points per game. "We saw bits and pieces of it here and there".

After that miss, Baylor senior Chloe Jackson relied on a screen from Brown to convert the eventual game-winning layup. Ionescu shot 6 for 24, including 0 for 7 in the fourth quarter.

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.

In a post on the Player Tribune titled, "A Letter to Ducks Nation", Ionescu wrote Saturday, "I came to the University of OR as a freshman in 2016-2017".

This game between UConn and the Irish was a rematch of last season's Final Four classic Notre Dame won on a last-second shot by Ogunbowale.

Ionsecu continued to lead the team to a narrow victory against No. 1 Mississippi State in the Elite Eight only to fall to top-seeded Baylor in the semifinals. In doing so, the Lady Bears became just the third team since the field was expanded to 64 teams to win each of their games en route to the Final Four by 25-plus points. Baylor's powerful post players combined to score 43 points on 18-of-26 shooting.

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.
