WHO HAS THE EDGE? // Tennessee vs. Notre Dame

THREE-POINT SHOOTING

Both teams have been outshot by opponents from three-point range. But Notre Dame has hit 21 more than Tennessee, and All-American Beth Morgan is a long-range threat. EDGE: Notre Dame

REBOUNDING

Volunteers sophomore All-American Chamique Holdsclaw _ who has battled some of the nation's top teams in the paint _ is the difference here. EDGE: Tennessee

DEFENSE

Tennessee has relied more on offensive production from Holdsclaw and Abby Conklin, Notre Dame's defense is a big reason it is in the Final Four. Edge: Notre Dame

BENCH

Injury-riddled Notre Dame has just eight players on its roster. EDGE: Tennessee

COACH

The Irish's Muffet McGraw has won 69 percent of her games but never has led a team to the Final Four. The Vols' Pat Summitt is a legend. She likes to say that she and her assistants have 80 years of coaching experience. Not to mention four national titles. EDGE: Tennessee

INTANGIBLES

Neither team was expected to make it here, but don't expect the Vols to be starry-eyed. They've seen and done it all. EDGE: Tennessee
