How to watch today's South Carolina vs. Iowa Women's NCAA March Madness championship game: Live stream, TV channel, and start time

The NCAA Division I women's basketball March Madness tournament is heading towards an epic championship game with just two teams remaining, with the No. 1 seed South Carolina Gamecocks (37-0) set to meet the No. 1 seed Iowa Hawkeyes (34-4) in Sunday’s showpiece final.

Yes, you guessed right. Sunday's national championship game is a rematch. Last season, powered by 41 points from Clark, Iowa upset heavily favoured and then-unbeaten South Carolina in the national semifinals. Here they are a year later, the Gamecocks are undefeated again, with vengeance on their minds.

The two sides were involved in a pair of exciting Final Four matchups on Friday night. The Gamecocks took down No. 3 -seed NC State 78-59 to advance to the national championship game.

The Wolfpack kept things competitive through the first period, but as they have done plenty of times this season, South Carolina went on a stellar run to pull away and win comfortably.

Now, the Gamecocks will aim to lift their second national championship in the last three seasons and their third in program history. Standing in their way is a tough Iowa side, though.

The Hawkeyes' 71-69 win over No. 3 UConn was much trickier than South Carolina's win, with Caitlin Clark playing one of the more modest games of her Big Dance run.

It will be a quick turnaround for both teams, but especially for Iowa. The Hawkeyes will have less than 40 hours from the end of Friday's game to prepare for Sunday's championship.

Are you ready to watch sensation Caitlin Clark's final college basketball game before she enters the WNBA draft?
