Stars Asia Durr and Myisha Hines-Allen did their part, combining for 34 points. But Louisville is headed to the Final Four after executing a defensive game plan perfectly tailored to take away Oregon State's strengths.

Asia Durr scored 18 points, Myisha Hines-Allen added 16 and top-seeded Louisville earned its first Final Four berth since 2013 with a 76-43 rout of No. 6 seed Oregon State on Sunday in the women's NCAA Tournament Lexington Region final.
A No. 1 seed for the first time, Louisville is the first team to punch its ticket to Columbus. The Cardinals, who are making their third Final Four appearance, forced No. 6 seed Oregon State into 17 turnovers and limited Marie Gulich to 14 points.
Just three years ago, all four No. 1 seeds reached the Final Four. Will chalk hold all the way to Columbus, or will there be upsets in the Elite Eight? Oregon, not defending-champion South Carolina, might be the No. 2 seed that shakes things up.

Five years ago, Louisville pulled off one of the greatest upsets in women's NCAA tournament history. But on Sunday in the Elite Eight, the top-seeded Cardinals are the favorite against a team that is on a roll.
Marie Gulich had 26 points, Kat Tudor added 16 and sixth-seeded Oregon State shot 58 percent in the second half to upset No. 2 seed Baylor 72-67 on Friday night in the women's NCAA Tournament Lexington Region semifinal.
After winning on the road in the second round, Oregon State is right at home in the Lexington Regional. The sixth-seeded Beavers upset No. 2 seed Baylor in the Sweet 16, snapping the Lady Bears' 30-game winning streak.
Oregon State notched a historic win in the second round. Friday was even more impressive. After three cross-country flights and squeezing in finals on campus, the Beavers kept it simple in bouncing second-seeded Baylor out of the Sweet 16.

Before taking the court @BeaverWBB yells this German saying in locker room. Led by their German Sr C Marie Gulich...best part is she won't tell them what they're saying! Beavers battle Baylor Bears Friday night in Lexington 7:00pm ESPN2
How well 6-foot-5 Marie Gülich plays 6-7 Kalani Brown on Friday (ESPN2, 7 p.m. ET) will likely determine whether Oregon State -- in the Sweet 16 for the third season in a row just a decade removed from oblivion -- can beat Baylor in the regional semis.
The Beavers became the first team to beat the Lady Vols on their home court in the history of the women's NCAA tournament -- not by playing the game of their lives but by playing like themselves for three quarters.
Tennessee lost for the first time at home in women's NCAA Tournament history when Marie Gulich had 14 points and 12 rebounds to lead sixth-seeded Oregon State to a 66-59 win on Sunday .
Oregon State's first win over Tennessee sent the Beavers to the Sweet 16 -- but also marked the first time in program history that Tennessee missed the Sweet 16 in back-to-back seasons, and the Lady Vols' first home loss in 58 NCAA tournament games.
While senior Marie Gulich led No. 6 Oregon State with 29 points and 15 rebounds, sophomores Mikayla Pivec and Kat Tudor were just as instrumental in leading the Beavers to a matchup against No. 3 Tennessee.
Marie Gulich scored 21 of her 29 points in the second half and grabbed 15 rebounds as No. 6 seed Oregon State beat No. 11 Western Kentucky 82-58 in the first round of the women's NCAA Tournament on Friday.
Can Kelsey Mitchell and Ohio State make it to the Final Four in Columbus? Is top-seeded Louisville in the toughest region? Is Texas' Brooke McCarty the next Morgan William? And what are the best games and players to see in the early rounds?
Courtney Ekmark scored 18 points and Arizona State held No. 10 Oregon State without a field goal over the final 5:14 to rally for a 57-51 victory in the quarterfinals of the Pac-12 Tournament on Friday night.
There was a time when German native Marie Gülich didn't know what "March Madness" meant. Now a senior who has savored the chance to play college basketball and continued to elevate Oregon State, Gülich leads the No. 10 Beavers into the postseason.
