This should be a hell of a game between two teams that have been rolling as of late and kind of seperated themselves early as the two best teams from the Dallas region of the bracket. Oregon State has proven itself on the defensive end, allowing no more than 54 points in 10 of its last 12 games. Meanwhile, Baylor has lost just one game all season and has a 1-2 punch that helps produce a truckload of points almost nightly.
When it's all said and done, Baylor is the better team here with better balance and more consistency. Look for the Lady Bears to meet UConn in the Final Four.
