Get ready for Connecticut vs. Notre Dame round four.
For the third straight season the two Big East rivals will meet in the Final Four. Throw in plucky Louisville and the Big East will be well represented in the Big Easy this weekend.
The Cardinals, who pulled off the biggest upset in the tournament knocking off Brittney Griner and Baylor, will face Final Four newcomer California on Sunday night in the first game in New Orleans.
Skylar Diggins and her Fighting Irish will play Connecticut in the second game.
The Irish have owned this rivalry lately winning seven of the last eight meetings, including both of the national semifinal matchups. The two teams played three thrilling games this year with Notre Dame winning each.
