Earlier this week the coaches of the Final Four teams praised the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) for accurately predicting the teams that would make it all the way.

Notre Dame's Muffet McGraw said “Looks like the committee did a fantastic job, too. Congratulations for getting us all assembled in Denver."

Baylor, Stanford, Notre Dame and UConn ready to play in Sunday's semifinals. This will be the fourth time UConn and Notre Dame meet this season in the first semifinal at 6:30 p.m. Baylor, the nation's only undefeated team, plays Stanford at 9 p.m.

This is the second time in the history of the women's championship that all four number one seeds have advanced to the Final Four.

Here’s what you need to know about the Notre Dame team:

-This is the team’s fourth trip to the Final Four. It’s also the second year in a row they’ve made it to the finals.

-Skylar Diggins has attracted major attention over the last few weeks over her good looks. She has generated quite the Twitter following.

-Apart from losing to UConn the team have sailed through the NCAAs. They have won their four games by an average of 29.3 points, allowing only 47.3 points. They have also only allowed opponents a 35.4 shooting percentage from the field.

-The teams have experienced players with fifth year seniors Dev Peters, Brittany Mallory, and Natalie Novosel leading the team on the floor. However their young players such as Kayla McBride are pretty deadly.
