Inside and out, semifinal will be special by Nancy Lieberman, Special to ESPN.com LSU is the No. 1 overall seed in the women's NCAA Tournament and has the best mid-range game and top backcourt duo of any team going to the Final Four. But Baylor can make the same boast about its frontcourt. And when the two clash Sunday in the national semifinals, we'll see a very even matchup, with athleticism at every position and two teams that love to get up and down the floor. A look at how the two match up: Matchup to watch Abiola Wabara Seimone Augustus Abiola Wabara has been Baylor's big defensive stopper, and she'll be assigned to guard LSU superstar Seimone Augustus. Wabara is long and athletic and has caused problems for opponents' stars throughout the season and especially in the tournament. But Wabara will have her hands full as Augustus clearly is more experienced and the proven All-American. No matter how you play her, Augustus will get off her shots. She's too quick, her off-the-ball movement is too good and she comes off screens very well. Wabara will stick to Augustus and contest every shot, but the key is being able to apply consistent pressure without fouling. Wabara must defend and contest, but not bail Augustus out by putting her on the foul line for easy points. She has missed just 16 free throws all season (making 111 of 127 for 87 percent). Backcourt Chelsea Whitaker Temeka Johnson There is no negative to LSU's backcourt. The 5-foot-3 Temeka Johnson is the shortest player on the court but plays with the biggest heart, and is one of the nation's top point guards. Augustus (20.1 ppg) is not only the nation's best slasher, but the country's best player, period. These two (who combine for 32 points) play together very well, instinctively knowing where the other is or will be and help give LSU the Final Four's best mid-range shooting offense. Johnson committed an uncharacteristic seven turnovers in the Elite Eight. Chelsea Whitaker lacks Johnson's experience, but Baylor's point guard has had a tremendous season and really came into her own this year. Whitaker, who also had an uncharacteristic eight turnovers Monday, averages only 4.8 points, but dishes 5.2 assists on average and boasts a 1.8 assist-to-turnover ratio. The biggest key for Baylor's backcourt – and its potential for success against LSU – is whether Chameka Scott can play like she did against North Carolina on Monday. After going 0-for-9 from 3-point range in her previous two games, Scott went 4-of-8 from downtown against UNC for 18 points. She also had nine rebounds and four steals. Baylor's 3-point shooting could be a factor. The Lady Bears hit 4.6 treys per game and shoot 40.9 percent from downtown. LSU, the worst 3-point shooting team in the SEC this season, averages 3.8 treys and hits less than 35 percent of its attempts from beyond the arc. Scholanda Hoston, who so far in the tournament has been most effective with her defensive efforts, is the top 3-point threat, sinking 44 on 34.6 percent accuracy. LSU rarely looks for the 3. Rather, the Lady Tigers only take it if it's wide open. They prefer to slash to the basket, penetrate and suck in the defense to get open 17-footers or blow past the defense on the dribble. That's what separates LSU from other teams. The Lady Tigers always look to penetrate, taking that crucial second dribble to split the defense. >>>>in depth breakdown here<<<< last of 3 pages: Who wins? This one's close. They match up too well at every position. The key is how well Augustus plays or how well Baylor shuts down the all-everything superstar. LSU's the easy pick, but I'll take Baylor.
