Broadcast information

Led by 12th-year head coach Cori Close, UCLA is one spot out of the top 25 in the AP Poll and three spots out in the Coaches Poll. This will be their first Power Five matchup on the year, although South Dakota State was receiving votes in the top 25 as well.

Although they only returned one starter from last year’s team that made the Women’s NIT Semifinals, that one starter is leading scorer Charisma Osborne. Meanwhile, they have also gotten Emily Bessoir back after missing all of last year due to injury.

Freshmen Kiki Rice, Gabriela Jacquez, Christeen Iwuala, Londynn Jones and Lina Sontag have all helped offset those losses along with Wake Forest Demon Deacons transfer Gina Conti. The return of Camryn Brown and Dominique Onu also helps.

All 10 of those players average over 12 minutes a game, showing how deep they go, and senior  Brynn Masikewich is also back from an injury and averaging over eight minutes a game. Simply put, this team can go deep into their bench.

On the other side, Kellie Harper has the same advantage with Jordan Horston back and healthy, and she used it Saturday. That should make this an intriguing matchup. The Tennessee Lady Vols lead the all-time series with UCLA 18-2, but UCLA won the most recent meeting 89-77, an NCAA Tournament First Round matchup in 2019.

Whichever team wins this game will advance to the championship game at Noon ET Monday to take on the winner between the Gonzaga Bulldogs and Marquette Golden Eagles, who upset the No. 6 ranked Louisville Cardinals and No. 3 ranked Texas Longhorns respectively Saturday. The losers of those two games will face off at 2:30 p.m. ET Monday.
