KINGSTON, R.I. (AP) - Brittney Griner and Baylor are two wins from a perfect season.
Still, it won't be easy for the Lady Bears to become the seventh women's team to go undefeated. They'll have to get past two other No. 1 seeds at the Final Four in Denver - Stanford and either Notre Dame or Connecticut. It's the first time since 1989 that all four top seeds reached the semifinals of the NCAA tournament.
No real surprise, though, because the Lady Bears, Cardinal, Irish and Huskies have dominated all year long. They've held the top four spots in The Associated Press poll virtually all season and have combined to lose only twice to anyone but themselves.
The pressure of playing on the national stage in Denver shouldn't bother any of them. After all, Stanford, Notre Dame and UConn were in the Final Four last season. Baylor was there two years ago.
