with montrel horel. mason plumley's jam tied the game at two. but they outscored the blue devils. smith drives in for two of his team. the cardinals get the hardware as they head to the final four. they also remembered their teammate who is in the hospital. >> i don't think we could have gone on if it wasn't for ware saying, go win the game. but we had to gather ourselves. we couldn't lose this game for him. we just couldn't. >> today's other regional final was in the south played in arlington. michigan came out firing against florida. better than nick stouskas. only went six for six from

the tigers. how about this play by clarendon. images to get it to britney lloyd and bury it is jumper. cal moves on with a 73-63 win. georgia which knocked off stanford is now standing between the bears and the first ever trip to the final four. not only are the bears winning they are having a lot of fun in the process. >> just be and embrace the moment. be happy that we're here but don't be satisfied one more tp- fp ear other. one more for this team. one more for our program, our school. do something that cal has never done before. i think you know that's just gives us -- make us think that we can go out and dunk or something. just be us and play cal basketball. >> britney greiner and baylor ended up in the final four. cardinal started the game with an attitude and kept us up the entire way. shimel with the ball behind the
ball to greiner. baylor rallied and sims hit that three. the teams then traded free throws. sims was baylor's last desperate chance. that's to be considered one of the biggest upsets in women's sports. top seeded bears knocked out by louisville. who will play quarterback for the raiders in 2013 continues to be one of the biggest topics. rumors that matt flynn is about to become a raider. the acquisition of flynn would obviously also mean the departure of carson palmer. >> reports tonight that two important role players in the 49ers should be ready for training camp. hunter was a solid back up to frank gore until he was injured on this play against the saints
