Huskies fall short Notre Dame 91-89 in OT

It would be gut wrenching for it to happen again the way this team has battled all year.

Kobe Bryant, attending with his family, tweeted after the game: Big time shot Arike! Yeah, it really did. With only seven healthy scholarship players left, the Irish rallied from second-half deficits in the last three NCAA games. So if they can have that swagger going and can dictate the pace, they can win the game. But the semis have been the round that's gotten them, now for the eighth time.

Whatever grandiose word or phrase one wants to use, it would be fitting following the 91-89 Fighting Irish overtime triumph against No. 1 and then 36-0 Connecticut Friday night in Columbus, Ohio.

Mississippi State (36-1) first has to be get by Louisville (36-2) in the first game tonight.

A year ago, the University of CT women's basketball team lost a heartbreaker at the buzzer in overtime to Mississippi State in the semifinals of the NCAA tournament and UConn coach Geno Auriemma smiled.

The underlying theme all season was redemption and they fell short.

Yet for the second year in a row, the Huskies have, indeed, proved to be beatable.

"You know, when you do something and it seems like it's so effortless, you do get numb and forget it's hard".

"They're not going away, they've been around for a long time", UConn head coach Geno Auriemma said. There are no bad teams (here). The Irish won seven times, twice knocking UConn out of the Final Four.

One NFL team has big interest in trading for Odell Beckham Jr
But considering Beckham's far-from ideal behavior, Giants co-owner John Mara might want to ride himself of the headache. No one really knows what will happen with the star player.

What struck me then was how much Auriemma wanted his team to be great and how much his players wanted to be great themselves. But there were some cracks in the armor. Well so far in the Tournament they have wrecked St. Francis 140-52, Quinnipiac 71-46, Duke 72-59, and SC 94-65. It is far too early to tell, said Coach Joanne P. McCallie of Duke, which lost to UConn in the semifinals of the Albany Regional.

"There really is not a whole lot you can say in a moment like that". "You can't complain about it, though, because that's what you signed up for". We know we were playing a great team. "All of us have kind of accepted that".

Notre Dame takes on Mississippi State in the national championship on Sunday. The Huskies have won six national titles since 2009. And now, UConn has had two semifinal losses in a row. Practices, Samuelson said, were stronger this year.

A jumper by Collier and a three-pointer from Crystal Dangerfield made it look as if the semifinal was headed to a second overtime before Ogunbowale hit her shot. I think I'll remember this one just a little bit more. Katie Lou Samuelson scored 16 points for CT. She atoned 37 seconds after a Notre Dame timeout with the shot that set off a wild celebration from the Irish faithful that made the trip. UConn challenged her to beat them, and she did not shrink from the opportunity, including converting two three-pointers after coming into the game only 9-of-35 (25.7 percent) beyond the arc.

Friday's game will be different.

So did defense, which Samuelson pointed to as perhaps the biggest culprit in the loss.

As volleyball rises in popularity, siphoning some of the overall basketball talent pool, McCallie said, high-profile brands like UConn and Auriemma might see their recruiting advantages increase as other universities compete for a shrinking number of top players. Sheffer had picked a seat up in the stands, behind the basket so he could watch the women's plays as they developed.

Nurse and Williams were 148-3 in their careers, with two NCAA titles.
