Fayetteville Observer: South Carolina 78, NC State 65

Mikey DiLullo says: “It’s hard to see anyone beating South Carolina this year. NC State may keep it close for a quarter or two, but the Wolfpack — much like the rest of women’s basketball — won’t be able to keep up with Staley for much longer.”

The Athletic: South Carolina wins

Grayce Raynor and Sabreena Merchant write: “If we assume both teams’ guards will have their moments, it seems like this game will come down to who’s better down low. NC State forward River Baldwin likely will be in charge of Cardoso. She and the The Wolfpack already matched up well against Stanford’s Cameron Brink in the Sweet 16, but Cardoso could be an even more imposing challenge. South Carolina’s bench will also be a major challenge from the Wolfpack. The Gamecocks are built for March, averaging nearly 34 points per game from their reserves.”

Bleacher Report: South Carolina wins, NC State +11.5

Joe Tansey says: “The Wolfpack have the potential to stay within single digits. They went 7-3 against ranked opposition in the regular season. However, it will take a perfect performance for the Wolfpack to pull off what would be one of the more extraordinary Women’s Final Four upsets.”
