Notre Dame vs. Mississippi State

Open this

They responded this year by going 37-2, including their own overtime win Friday in the Final Four against top-seeded Louisville, with their one loss before Sunday coming in the Southeastern Conference tournament championship game against the same SC team that beat them in the national final a year ago. Backtracking one round, how did the Huskies actually lose a game? Ogunbowale converted a three-point play with a driving layup and free throw to trim Mississippi State's lead to 41-38 late in the third quarter.

Mississippi State controlled most of the game, leading by 13 at halftime. Ogunbowale's title-winning shot was just Notre Dame's second made 3-pointer of the game. "Three exciting games. I hope the ratings reflect it", McGraw said. Credit Notre Dame's zone defense, especially in the second half, for taking State out of its offensive rhythm. Notre Dame won 61-58. "We talked about how we were going to break the pressure and then we didn't do any of that (in the first half.) We tried to go one on one".

Two days earlier, Ogunbowale's jumper with one second remaining in overtime knocked off previously unbeaten CT in the semifinals.

"They just put their head down and drove it to the rim", Mississippi State Coach Vic Schaefer said.

Arike Ogunbowale hit the shot of her life - again.

It was Ogunbowale's second game-winning shot of the weekend - her first was on March 30 at the Final Four semifinal which helped Notre Dame past previously unbeaten UConn 91-89 in overtime. After a defensive stop, guard Jackie Young banked in a shot from the lane to tie the game with under a minute remaining. Mississippi State's McCowan, who had 21 points and 25 rebounds in the semifinals, appeared rushed and jittery against Notre Dame's zone. When Notre Dame double-teamed her, McCowan made only 1-of-8 shots.

Notre Dame's Arike Ogunbowale holds the trophy after defeating Mississippi State in the final of the women's NCAA Final Four college basketball tournament, Sunday, April 1, 2018, in Columbus, Ohio.

For a Notre Dame team that survived injuries all season and was given nearly no chance to beat UConn on Friday, this weekend was an absolute dream come true.
