Notre Dame beats UConn in OT on last-second shot

AP_18086129113074

"I think I'm kind of torn between crying and laughing", McGraw said. "It's been a great effort all the way around by building vendors, ESPN, and the NCAA to make this event special".

In 2017, UConn's women's team suffered a historic upset to Mississippi State.

Now with the two powerhouse programs in different conferences - UConn in the American Athletic Conference and Notre Dame in the Atlantic Coast Conference - the intensity has diminished. With only seven healthy scholarship players left, the Irish rallied from second-half deficits in the last three NCAA games.

"It was the second or third time we beat them in the semifinal, that's been our lucky charm", coach Muffet McGraw said. Before Friday night, they hadn't been tested in this tournament so far, winning their four games by a 155-point margin, although more than half of that came in a record-setting first-round 140-52 win over St. Francis (Pa.).

The Louisville Cardinals and the Mississippi State Bulldogs both have a similar record going into their game.

Asia Durr hit a pair of late 3s to give Louisville a 48-46 lead over Mississippi State heading into the fourth quarter of their women's Final Four semifinal.

The network also looked to bring in Spidercam for its Final Four and National Championship broadcasts, which required separate surveys to determine cable and camera placement.

What sets this team apart from some other UConn teams is that the senior leaders are two of the best defenders. "When it gets really, really hard, that's when it gets about right for us. So I think it definitely has lessened the intensity of the rivalry, but that could change tomorrow".

After shocking the sports world previous year and beating the Huskies in the Final Four, the Bulldogs lost to conference rival SC in the title game.

UConn has won the five meetings since, including a 80-71 victory on December 3 this season. UConn had an opportunity to win the game in regulation after another Notre Dame turnover, but Gabby Williams' shot was off the mark.

"You know what? She's had a little bit to do with this today", Schaefer said.

Down two points with one second remaining, UConn heaved the ball down court in a last-ditch effort, but the ball was tipped and time expired before the Huskies were ever able to get a shot off.

And as much as this stings the Huskies and their fans, it is so sweet and satisfying for the Irish, who have lost four players to knee (ACL) injuries this season. And winning is hard work. The nightcap between undefeated UConn and Notre Dame was even better. UConn is in the semifinals for the 19th time, snapping a tie with Tennessee for the most in women's basketball.

A'ja Wilson of SC won the Ann Meyers Drysdale Award as the National Player of the Year. Jackie Young has 20 for Notre Dame.

It was that same SC squad that spoiled the Bulldogs' chance at an unbeaten season, beating them 62-51 in the SEC tournament final.

"It's a shame it has to come down to that", Louisville coach Jeff Walz said. "We kept fighting back and fighting back. She does so many things".

The Bulldogs head back to the championship after losing past year to SC. Senior Victoria Vivians is playing the best basketball of her career averaging 19.6 points per game and shooting almost 50 percent from the field.

Wilson received 22 votes from 32-member national media panel.

Instead, it will be Notre Dame that will face Mississippi State in Sunday's final after the Bulldogs also won in OT over Louisville 73-63.
