NCAA Women’s Basketball Final Set: Baylor vs. Notre Dame

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

Baylor and Notre Dame capped the women's college basketball season with a thrilling championship game.

"It's tough", the 5-foot-8 senior from Milwaukee said. "I just know when you lose a big-time player in the middle of a national championship, you're not supposed to win". Her stats made her Baylor's third-leading scorer and rebounder on the night. "I think you're always looking at that one thing you could have done differently to make the difference in the game", McGraw said. Arike's free throw with 3:18 left gave their Irish their first lead since the first two minutes of the game.

"I'm one of the leaders of this team, so (I came back) just to have my voice there, to tell them that I'm still OK", Cox said to ESPN. Then you're like, 'We didn't play well enough.' Then you start getting really picky. I don't know what "old school" means. And the way they won in 2018 was breathtaking, with buzzer-beaters by Ogunbowale in the semifinal and championship games against CT and Mississippi State, respectively.

A freak accident if there ever was on, Cox's teammate Kalani Brown landed on Cox's leg, sending the junior post player to the ground and a hush over the crowd. Wasn't exactly how we thought it would go.

In 2019, Ogunbowale found herself with the ball in the closing seconds against Baylor, with Notre Dame down by two in the title contest at Amalie Arena.

UConn, which lost to Notre Dame in this year's semifinals, won for four straight from 2013-16.

The two teams were going back and forth until Jackson's game-winning layup. "I needed to make them understand, 'We're going to still win this basketball game".

Trump, Pence stress support for Israel
Trump surveyed his pro-Israel actions as president and warned of the dangers to the Jewish State of a Democratic victory in 2020. President Donald Trump mocked Congresswoman Ilhan Omar during his speech to the Republican Jewish Coalition this afternoon.

"I would have liked to have won the game, "she said".

Arike Ogunbowale wipes away tears as she walks off the floor. "And for LC (Cox), she got us here, and we had to finish the job for her". She finished with 31 points.

"Coaches can coach a lifetime and never win a championship". The victor of the title game will move into sole possession of third place on the all-time list behind Geno Auriemma (11) and Pat Summitt (8). In 2012, Baylor went 40-0 when Makenzie (Robertson) Fuller was a guard on that title team. Mulkey's daughter, Makenzie Fuller, had a daughter who was stillborn in November 2017.

Instead, the Lady Bears were able to run off the final seconds, setting off a celebration that lasted well into the night and carried back to the team hotel for a pep rally to celebrate with a group of students that were busing 20 miles back to Waco. But the Irish have a knack for big comebacks, doing it against UConn in this year's semifinal and against Mississippi State in last season's title game, when they rallied from 15 down in the third quarter. McGraw has been the coach for 835 of them.

"It's sweet", said Landrum, who had eight points, six assists, three rebounds and two blocks. "We had so many missed opportunities both ends of the floor". We just had to come together.

When the Irish were down by as many as 17, it might have seemed to some like the finals were not almost as exciting as last year's.
