Notre Dame, Baylor Meet For National Championship

Notre Dame and Baylor to meet in Sunday's championship game

From there, the teams traded bucket for bucket down the stretch, as the game turned from a snoozer into an all-time classic as Baylor won the third national title in school history. "We just beat the defending national champions".

While telling ESPN that it was too early to know much in detail about her injury, she vowed she would be ready for her senior season, saying she would "do whatever I need to do to get it better, whether that's rehab, whatever it is, I'm going to do it".

And such things do matter to Mulkey, whose program joins UConn (11) and Tennessee (eight) as women's teams to win at least three championships in the NCAA era.

"I don't think it was any mystery you know who was going to be taking the majority of their shots in the fourth quarter", UConn coach Geno Auriemma said. Jackson capped a 10-point quarter with a driving layup as time expired for a 25-14 Bears lead. Mulkey and Baylor have won titles in 2005, 2012 and 2019.

"Absolutely", Jackson said. "I believed it".

Mulkey carries into the title game a new sense of perspective.

So what's the story with the baby she was holding and carrying?

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.

"I mean, it's tough".

Over time, nothing has changed about Mulkey's competitiveness. She mentioned Saturday how important it was that for the first time in her 35-year coaching career, each of her players' parents are in the stands because of a new NCAA rule that pays up to $3,000 per athlete for their families to travel to the Final Four.

In October, Fuller gave birth to a son, Kannon, who Mulkey had with her on the dais after Friday's win and on the floor Sunday after winning the championship. Mulkey's daughter, Makenzie Fuller, had a daughter who was stillborn in November 2017. "But they kept punching", guard Marina Mabrey said.

"You never know what's going to happen", Smith said. Its play against OR, and Sabrina Ionescu in particular, only enhanced that confidence going into the championship game. "I've done both in the previous year and a half". He'll hear about how Baylor lost one game that season and learned from it.

Notre Dame got within seven points in the third quarter, but Baylor appeared to have righted the ship and had pulled ahead 62-48 when Cox collided with Brown during a defensive possession and collapsed to the ground with an apparent left knee injury. News conferences for these two titans of college basketball meandered from tactical questions to personal questions to queries about the state of the game and women's empowerment. It was the high-emotion, high-stakes game you'd hope for in a championship. I'm a lot older than Kim. This followed a similar pattern to last year's Final Four as she had a pair of slow starts, but incredible finishes. 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 bad memories of losing her point guard, Kristy Wallace, in similar fashion last season.

"We came into the season with all of that on us".
