It was a surprise either of them made it. California was playing its first Final Four, but it lost to Louisville, which has been taking down big teams throughout the women’s NCAA college basketball tournament.

No. 5 Louisville won 64-57. The San Jose Mercury News reports:

“After opening the game with one of their best halves of the tournament, the Bears (32-4) saw their double-digit lead evaporate in the second half.”

SB Nation called it “one of the best games” of the women’s contest this year.

Tuesday, Louisville will go on to play the winner of Sunday night’s UConn-Notre Dame matchup.
