  • Sun, March 31, 2024 at 2:59 PM MST

    Duke leads NC State 27-21 at halftime. The Wolfpack are shooting just 27% from the field and Duke is at 31%. The two teams are a combined 17 of 60 from the field. Ugh.

  • Sun, March 31, 2024 at 2:55 PM MST

    NC State calls timeout with 7:07 to go as Duke takes a 21-14 lead. Jared McCain has 11 of the Blue Devils’ 21 points and Duke is playing some great defense too.

  • Sun, March 31, 2024 at 2:33 PM MST

    DJ Burns has missed back-to-back shots at the basket and then picked up a cheap foul after the second miss. That’s his second foul. There’s 9:47 to go in the first half.

    Final: NC State 76, Texas 66

    The Wolfpack are moving on to the Final Four for the first time since 1998. They’ll face South Carolina on Friday. NC State’s Aziaha James led the way with 27 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists.

  • Sun, March 31, 2024 at 2:15 PM MST

    It’s not happening for Texas tonight. They’re going to play the foul game down the stretch here, but it’s far enough out of reach that NC State doesn’t have to worry.

  • Sun, March 31, 2024 at 2:12 PM MST

    It’s still an 8-point margin (72-64) with 1:32 left. The Longhorns need a stop badly.

  • Sun, March 31, 2024 at 2:09 PM MST

    It’s time to see which ACC team will join Purdue, UConn and Alabama in the Final Four. Will it be Duke or NC State?

  • Sun, March 31, 2024 at 2:07 PM MST

    Aziaha James might’ve just stuck a dagger in Texas. It’s her seventh 3-pointer and the Longhorns are up 11 with just over 3 minutes left.

  • Sun, March 31, 2024 at 1:59 PM MST

    The Longhorns are still in it, but they’re running short on time. The deficit is 8 and there’s a little over 5 minutes left on the clock. Madison Booker has 15 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists, but Texas will need her to carry them over the finish line here.

  • Sun, March 31, 2024 at 1:45 PM MST

    End of 3Q: NC State 57, Texas 48

    The Longhorns have cut into the lead, but it’s still a nine-point game heading into the final quarter.

    Final: Purdue 72, Tennessee 66

    Zach Edey finishes with a career-high 40 points and grabbed 16 rebounds. He went to the free throw line 22 times and made 14 of them.

    It’s the third Final Four trip for the Boilermakers and the team’s first since 1980.

  • Sun, March 31, 2024 at 1:40 PM MST

    It’s final. Purdue 72, Tennessee 66.
