Notre Dame women win national championship on Arike Ogunbowale's insane buzzer-beater

Open this

Mabrey finally hit Notre Dame's first of the night and her only one with 1:35 to play, giving her 19 in the tournament, three short of Kia Nurse's 2017 tournament record. Mississippi State stormed back, finishing with an 11-2 run of its own to erase the Notre Dame lead.

This is Notre Dame's second national championship and first since 2001. Game winning shots seem to be routine for Ogunbowale as she also hit the victor to beat UConn 91-89 on Friday.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - For the second straight game, Arike Ogunbowale made a winning shot, this one with 0.1 seconds left, as Notre Dame beat Mississippi State 61-58 to win the national championship on Sunday.

After the Notre Dame players doused their head coach with water when she came into the locker room, Irish athletics director Jack Swarbrick surveyed the smile-swathed scene and referred to McGraw as the GOAT (greatest of all time).

Stat of the game: McCowan still got her numbers, but she wasn't almost as impactful in this game as she was in the other five Mississippi State tournament games.

The coach did at least partially attribute the shot to some divine intervention. But the Fighting Irish mounted a furious second-half comeback to tie the game in the fourth quarter.

Friday night against CT, her dagger jump shot while straddling the three-point line hit the twine with one full second left.

"Phenomenal for women's basketball".

LeBron breaks Jordan's double-digit points streak record
Jordan's streak lasted from March 25, 1986 through December 26, 2001, while playing for the Chicago Bulls and Washington Wizards . However, James already had passed Jordan as the league's all-time leading playoff scorer last spring.

This time, in the title game Sunday night, she cut it a bit closer - this time allowing the Bulldogs one-10th of a second.

What a game. What a Final Four.

Not that you can blame McCowan for anything in this NCAA Tournament.

On Sunday, they proved their resilience once again. More alarming, the Irish scored only 3 points in the second quarter against Mississippi State's relentless defense, allowing the Bulldogs to pull ahead by double figures. The Irish suffered four ACL tears this years to players in their rotation, but that only fueled them to this moment.

Ogunbowale's victor came after a wild sequence with the score tied; both teams got steals with less than 20 seconds to play.

We wouldn't be surprised if Ogunbowale gets another tweet from Kobe Bryant after her second consecutive buzzer-beater.

"We actually didn't really talk about it at all", McGraw said of the mounting injuries.

It was Ogunbowale's only three-pointer of the game, just the second all night for Notre Dame.
