Baylor's title win caps exciting women's basketball season

Notre Dame and Baylor to meet in Sunday's championship game

Then they met OR on Friday night and found themselves in a back-and-forth contest that featured 12 ties and 22 lead changes. "The game didn't come down to that free throw".

Baylor Bears coach Kim Mulkey was emotional upon celebrating her third national championship win as a head coach. But the Irish have a knack for big comebacks, doing it against UConn in this year's semifinal and against Mississippi State in last year's title game, when they rallied from 15 down in the third quarter. This came on the heels of a 2018 Final Four that saw both games go into overtime, the first time that had ever happened as well. "If I was going to get a rebound, scoring, boxing out, playing hard D, we were going to get the win".

Arike Ogunbowale, the star in last year's title game, was fouled with the Irish trailing by two with 1.9 seconds remaining. What would these teams do for an encore after last year's instant classic?

Now she's back in a different kind of Final Four - the Captain Morgan Pose-Off Bracket Challenge.

The Fighting Irish erased an 11-point deficit going into the fourth quarter, and had a one-point lead with about two and a half minutes to go. In all, there were five Notre Dame scorers in double figures to outclass Connecticut's four. Ogunbowale won both games with dramatic buzzer-beaters. Turner missed last year's championship run as she was sidelined with a torn ACL, but the grad student made her presence known all night long this time around as she finished with 15 points, 15 rebounds and five blocks, none bigger than the one on Collier as she attempted to pull UConn within one point. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are shooting 36.2 percent from beyond the arc and 74.4 percent from the free throw line.

On Friday night, the Notre Dame women's basketball team took on UConn in the Final Four.

As discussed above, Turner anchored the Irish defense and was crucial to their success against UConn.

Notre Dame guard Arike Ogunbowale had 23 points and six assists in Friday's victory against CT. "She now has the blocked shot record at Notre Dame, beating Ruth Riley". She played for Baylor as a senior during the 2005-06 season after spending the first three seasons of her college career at Florida.

Katie Lou Samuelson scored 20 points for coach Geno Auriemma's Huskies (35-3). She only missed two shots and she never turned the ball over. Arike Ogunbowale is averaging 21.5 points and 4.9 rebounds while Jessica Shepard is averaging 16.8 points and 10.3 rebounds.

Baylor's win Sunday snapped Notre Dame's two-game streak in the series.

After a thrilling game in which Baylor seemed to have things in control, seemed to be falling apart after a third-quarter injury to junior Lauren Cox, and then got things back together to win it all, 82-81, Mulkey reflected on the journey to get here. Ogunbowale was fouled with 1.9 seconds remaining as Notre Dame trailed 82-80. Despite Notre Dame's history of Final Four heroics, I'm going with Baylor. Will the Irish go out with back-to-back titles or will Baylor win their first title in seven years?
