LSU relied on their veterans during Friday's contest as Alexis Morris, Angel Reese, and LaDazhia Williams were the only Tigers to score in double figures. 

The Hokies led by as many as 12 in the third quarter, and it seemed like they were controlling the game. But big buckets by Alexis Morris and Angel Reese turned the tide.

Morris finished with 27 points, while Reese had her 33rd double-double finishing with 24 points and 12 rebounds.

LSU will play Iowa — which beat the previously undefeated South Carolina team Friday — for the national championship Sunday. The game will air on WBRZ.
