The Fighting Irish trailed 40-25 with 6 minutes, 41 seconds remaining in the third quarter.
The view from my seat suggests that this Final Four had to be the greatest ever.
Notre Dame's win ended a remarkable season for a Mississippi State team that has been trying to break through to the upper echelon of women's basketball for years.
Asia Durr, the ACC player of the year, had 18 points and Jones added 15 points for the Cardinals, who had a seven-point lead in the fourth quarter but couldn't hold on. "I just sat there on the sidelines and was simply amazed at what she could do on the basketball floor". This 10 minutes is ours, then this 10, and this 10, and this 10.
"Phenomenal for women's basketball". So what Arike Ogunbowale did on Friday night and then AGAIN last evening is just absolutely incredible. "They just treated me like one of them", said Ogunbowale. On the bench were four-four-players recovering from ACL tears, easily identified by the long, dark scars on their knees. The time he served and the capacity is however not known. "We would always play", said Ogunbowale. We were celebrating for them.
Thing is - she had done it before, just 48 hours earlier. She became a national star this season, ranking in the top 20 in scoring with almost 21 points a game and earning first-team all-ACC and second-team all-American honors. Notre Dame's Arike Ogunbowale made the game-winning three-pointer against Mississippi State with 0.1 seconds remaining. I think it will be a night everyone will remember and a great team experience, said Roderick.
After the game, Thompson still couldn't talk about The Shot, Redux without letting out a scream of joy.
"We had confidence in her", Young said. "But that's Rico, right?" That Sister Jean received more extensive coverage during one tournament than Ogunbowale will likely receive over her entire basketball career is not a slight on the luckiest nun alive, but rather a way for us to take stock of how we tell stories and where we choose to direct our attention. That's right. You better learn to pronounce her name because she will not soon be forgotten. "I was under the basket". "We knew it was going to go in". In fact, they could be two of the best in the world.
Just like Friday, the game came down to one play. She's going to keep taking it, which is what you need. "Yeah, a winning meme", she replied, laughing. The resiliency the Irish had shown all season while dealing with four season-ending knee injuries was there. It was hard work. We can't change the media coverage in the past, but we can certainly change it moving forward.
Before the game, Ogunbowale had just beaten Mabrey to 10,000 Instagram followers.
Friday night against CT, her dagger jump shot while straddling the three-point line hit the twine with one full second left. That was five less than the previous mark for futility set by Syracuse in 2016 against UConn.
Her mum Yolanda was a pitcher on the DePaul University softball team and was also Arike's grade-school basketball coach. Not only because you won the national championship but because of the way you did it, with all you overcame. "Hats off to UConn".
