Undefeated South Carolina advanced to the Final Four of the women’s NCAA Tournament with a 70-58 win over Oregon State on Sunday (per Yahoo Sports).

Tessa Johnson finished with a team-high 15 points and three assists, and Kamilla Cardoso added 12 to help South Carolina advance to the national semifinals unbeaten for the second straight season. If the Gamecocks achieve two more wins, they would become the 10th school to finish a season undefeated, and the first since UConn did it in 2016.

South Carolina coach Dawn Staley said: “That’s our team, they’re resilient. They deserve this. They’ve worked extremely hard to be where we are. I’m super proud of them. I’m giving all the glory to God though. God is really funny, he’s really funny. The devastating loss we had last year, to put us back here with a totally different team. If you don’t believe in God, something’s wrong with you, seriously. I’m a believer because he makes things come true.” 

The Gamecocks have mow made the Final Four for four straight years, and will play N.C. State on Friday night in Cleveland, Ohio.
