The Hawkeyes (3-0) will play UConn in the championship game tomorrow, while Oregon (2-1) will meet No. 15 Syracuse in the consolation game. Connecticut upset Syracuse, 83-76, in the first game.

Oregon closed with seven, 76-69, in the final 23.6 seconds, but that was as close as the Ducks would come.
