UConn has reached the Women's Final Four 20 times overall, including the past 12 years in a row. Notre Dame is making its ninth trip; Baylor its fourth. And then there's the newbie, Oregon. The Ducks are in the national semifinals of the women's NCAA tournament for the first time, but nobody is doubting them.

They meet in Friday's semifinals in Tampa, Florida, with No. 1 Baylor facing No. 2 Oregon at 6:00 PM CT, followed by No. 1 Notre Dame vs. No. 2 UConn.

Baylor and Oregon have met three times, including in the NCAA second round in 2005, when the Lady Bears won their first national championship. Notre Dame and UConn are quite a bit more familiar than that: Friday will mark their 50th meeting, and their eighth in the Final Four. UConn has the series lead, 37-12, but Notre Dame has the edge at the Final Four, 4-3.

Both games are on ESPN2/ESPN App.
