TAMPA – Notre Dame came within a point of repeating as the women’s college basketball champions.
Trailing by double digits for most of the game, the Irish came back in the fourth quarter after Baylor’s star forward Lauren Cox left with a knee injury.
Arike Ogunbowale made a jump shot and was fouled to complete a three-point play that trimmed the Baylor lead to six.
The Irish would go on to tie it with just seconds left. Jessica Shepherd hit two free throws to make it 80-80. But the finals' most outstanding player Chloe Jackson slashed to the basket and hit a layup to reclaim the lead.
After a time out to advance the ball to mid court and set up the final play, the ball ended up in Ogunbowale’s hands. Her shot was blocked but she was fouled and went to the line for two shots with 1.9 seconds remaining. She missed the first but made the second to make the final score 82-81.
It was the third national title for Baylor and denied Notre Dame’s Muffet McGraw a third national championship.
