Tuesday night’s semifinals had less drama than the quarterfinals, ending with Oklahoma State and Ole Miss advancing to the national championship match, two teams that advanced to match play for the first time this week.
Duke vs. Oklahoma State
After dominating Auburn in the quarterfinals, Oklahoma State made it all look easy in Tuesday’s semifinal, sweeping the Duke Blue Devils in a dominant performance.

While the Oklahoma State men’s golf team has 11 national titles, second most in NCAA Division I, the women’s squad has yet to win an NCAA championship and will look to do so tomorrow night.
Ole Miss vs. Arizona
Ole Miss continued their astounding run in Tuesday’s semifinals with a 3-2 win over Arizona.
Sophomore Andrea Lignell, who was a key factor for the Rebels earlier in the day, had a big par putt to put Ole Miss up two.
