In overtime, the Bulldogs asserted themselves and Morgan William, who hit the game-winning shot in OT previous year in the Final Four to end UConn's 111-game winning streak, made two free throws in the last minute to help Mississippi State (37-1) pull away. The Huskies came close to making it five in a row a year ago, but they fell short in the final four when Mississippi State beat them in a close 66-64 game.

The junior guard drilled a stepback jumper with one second remaining to give Notre Dame a 91-89 overtime victory over CT in the Final Four.

Jackie Young led Notre Dame with a career-high 32 points.

Notre Dame and Mississippi State will now face off in the national championship game on Sunday, April 1. The Fighting Irish will need to find a way to consistently deal with her size in one-on-one situations, and if they don't, it could force them to send doubles her way. There are no bad teams, no bad players.

Whenever UConn women's basketball has one of these ideal seasons, the critics seem to come out of the woodwork.

CT has proven again and again they are the best team this year, going undefeated so far. And when you go back and watch both plays, the resemblance is actually eerie. They look at the parade of elite players marching into Storrs, Connecticut, and question how a sport still fighting to gain the prominence of men's basketball can possibly benefit from having one team be so much better than all the rest.

Tennessee, an eight-time national champion, has not reached the Final Four since Coach Pat Summitt retired and died from early-onset Alzheimer's disease. Notre Dame jumped to a 24-11 lead later in the first quarter. She said the game compared to UConn's 80-71 comeback victory over the Irish in December because of the way Notre Dame never backed down. "It's still definitely a rivalry, and I think it's one of the best in college basketball".

UConn coach Geno Auriemma and the Huskies have dropped two of their last 149 games.

Collier finished with 24 points for the Huskies. It felt good. I didn't know it was going in, but it felt good. It ended in the hands of Ogunbowale, the Irish's leading scorer. Last weekend's highly anticipated Elite Eight matchup with defending national champion SC was a competitive bust: UConn won by 29 points.

If they want to get to the national title game, the Bulldogs will have to get past Louisville.

Junior center Teaira McCowan has had a record-setting 76 rebounds for a single tournament and set a Final Four rebound record with 25. Stevens had five quick points, and Katie Lou Samuelson hit a 3-pointer during the Huskies' run. 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.

Notre Dame upset top-ranked UConn 91-89 in the 2018 NCAA Division I women's basketball tournament Friday at Nationwide Arena in Columbus.

There was a stretch between 2010 and 2013 when the two squads played 15 times.

Stat of the game: Notre Dame was the more aggressive offensive team for all 40 minutes, and it helped put the Irish at the free throw line, where they shot 19-of-23.
