NCAA women's basketball championship: Baylor holds off Notre Dame, wins 3rd title

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", the 5-foot-8 senior from Milwaukee said. I needed to make them understand, We're going to still win this basketball game. That intense internal competition is why Baylor was able to eke out back-to-back close wins in the Final Four, despite rarely being tested by other teams during the season. "You can't really do anything about that one". "They continue to encourage her and she came alive in the second half".

Ogunbowale, who also had six rebounds, came up big in Friday's semifinal against UConn, finishing with a game-high 23 points. "For us to win was a miracle in itself when you lose a player of that caliber". "A national championship is what I came here for".

Jackson finished with 26 points and Kalani Brown had 20 for Baylor.

"We came into the season with all that on us, No. 1, defending champs", she said.

Time ran out on Notre Dame as Baylor inbounded the ball.

In 2012, then-junior Brittney Griner helped Baylor go 40-0 and put the Lady Bears back atop the women's basketball world. "They told me they were going to do this for me". Coaches can try every year to have great team chemistry, they can lead them, guide them, " Mulkey said. She fell to the floor, and Mulkey knew right away that something was wrong - "I know she's hurt because that kid would have gotten up", Mulkey would say later in her postgame interview.

Jackson added of Cox, "We had to finish the job for her". The Irish trailed 64-55 early in the fourth quarter before scoring 13 of the next 16 to take a 68-66 lead on Ogunbowale's short jumper with 3:56 left.

"I don't think it's any secret that we had just a disgusting year with the death of a grandchild, yet I don't think as a family, I'm talking about Makenzie and myself, we had time to grieve", Mulkey said after Baylor's win against OR in the Final Four.

Jackson was named the Final Four's Most Outstanding Player. The victor of the title game will move into sole possession of third place on the all-time list behind Geno Auriemma (11) and Pat Summitt (8). Mulkey talked Saturday about how she and her daughter, Makenzie Fuller, did not have had time to grieve properly after the death of Makenzie's infant daughter, Scout Marie. As she walked purposefully across the floor, her audible "You've got to be f*****g kidding me" in an otherwise silent Amelie Arena reflected very bad memories of losing her point guard, Kristy Wallace, in similar fashion last season.

"My teammates and my coaches, they believe in me", Jackson said. Even the current players who had never played with Scott but knew her and her inspiring story, felt the loss.

When the Irish were down by as many as 17, it might have seemed to some like the finals were not almost as exciting as last year's.

McGraw's comments drew both praise and criticism - you can probably guess where most of the criticism was coming from - and became a major subject of conversation in Tampa, Florida.
