Seimone Augustus Shoots!Seimone Augustus Celebrates!

SAN ANTONIO -- LSU's Seimone Augustus drew a charging foul with 4.8 seconds remaining and then made two free throws with 4.6 seconds remaining to send the Lady Tigers to their third-straight Women's Final Four, 62-59, over Stanford.

Augustus, the reigning national player of the year, scored 12 of LSU's final 15 points in the last 7:31 to single-handedly carry the Lady Tigers past the fading Cardinal down the stretch.

She wouldn't be denied a final shot at the school's first national championship in her senior season. Augustus finished with a game-high 26 points on 11-of-21 shooting, blocking a career-best three shots, grabbing four rebounds and adding two steals.

LSU (31-3) will face the winner of the Albuquerque Regional final between No. 1-seeded Duke and No. 2-seeded Connecticut (March 28, 8 p.m. CT).

The 2006 Women's Final Four, to be held in Boston's TD Banknorth Arena, will start on Sunday, April 2, at either 6 or 8:30 p.m.
