NCAA women’s basketball attendance at highest level in 15 years

NCAA women’s basketball attendance at highest level in 15 years

The Notre Dame women's basketball team is back on campus Monday after a heartbreaking loss in the national championship Sunday night against Baylor.

"It's tough", Ogunbowale said. Bickle knew that Baylor wasn't going to lose a step while Smith was on the floor.

Ionescu might not have been able to pull off a miracle against an insanely talented Baylor team this season, but by deciding to finish up her "unfinished business", she just gave the women's college basketball world a massive gift.

While this answer drew more criticism from people who don't believe gender inequality is still, you know, a thing, it will undoubtedly go down as one of the most powerful moments in women's basketball history. The senior missed her first free throw, and then she made the second despite intentionally trying to miss. We will find out very quickly as she has just 24 hours after the game to make a decision on whether or not to declare for the WNBA draft.

"I'm overcome with happiness, " said Brown, the 6-foot-7 senior center who was a three-time unanimous All-Big 12 pick with the Lady Bears.

"I had to hold myself back from jumping up on some of the plays, " Cox told the fans. "I mean, there's no question that's what was going to happen".

Congratulations to Baylor on your incredible season and winning the National Championship. "She gave us that spark, for sure, because it was like we said, we don't miss a beat when they sub in".

Faced with all that adversity, and playing on the biggest stage against a Notre Dame team poised to repeat, it would have been understandable if this team had thrown in the towel.

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

"First of all, to go out there on the wing and guard their best player, coach had confidence in me".

"She's our leader", Jackson said.

Arike Ogunbowale wipes away tears as she walks off the floor.

"We had to do it for LC", Chloe Jackson, referring to Cox, told reporters after the game.

Ogunbowale hit an off-balance 3-pointer at the third-quarter buzzer, then converted a traditional 3-point play with 9:06 remaining, cutting the Irish deficit to 66-61.

Mulkey and Baylor have won titles in 2005, 2012 and 2019. She talked about how hard it was to make it to just one Final Four, and how there simply was no guarantee that Baylor would ever make it back.

"It's sad, especially being my last game". Mulkey's daughter, Makenzie Fuller, had a daughter who was stillborn in November 2017. "Holding a child up here is a heck of a lot more touching than holding one right here that's deceased". Both teams have dominant inside players.

Last year's title run by Notre Dame was a shock.

The teams exchanged leads three times from there, with Jackson scoring the Bears' last two baskets. So she looked to her coach, Muffet McGraw. She tried to miss the second on objective, hoping for an offensive rebound, but made it. "I won't let this define the whole four years". And maybe if the Irish come out on top, we'd be talking about the Mabrey fueled comeback for years to come.
