The winner of this game will destroy Louisville. That is the frustrating part.
A Loyd 3 and Braker bank shot reduces the deficit to 61-55, forcing the Huskies to call time out at 6:13.
Connecticut goes on 7-0 run to build lead back up to 68-55 at final media timeout (3:51). Just not Notre Dame's night. Meanwhile, UConn has found its next Diana Taurasi and Maya Moore for the next four-year dynasty run in freshman Breanna Stewart, who has 27 points and is 10-of-16 from the floor.
Nobody on ND's squad is gonna sleep well for a long time after the performance tonight.
Brilliant career of Diggins about to end. She is 2-of-14 from the field. Similar to another beloved ND icon, Manti Te'o, the last night of her athletic career was maybe her worst. That's life.
Yep, sad thing is is that I remember Skylar's signing like it was yesterday --- goes by in a blink doesn't it?

Final score: Connecticut 83, Notre Dame 65. Phenomenal season for the Irish ends with 35-2 record.
Garbage performance. NO EXCUSES!
This has been one of the best defensive efforts I've ever seen in the women's game. They contested everything on the perimeter and blocked or diverted nearly everything underneath. And, as the announcer kept saying, they were winning the battle to the loose balls all night. Yes, they made more shots, but they had better looks. It all starts with the defense.
I may not be pretty, but I'm fast.....

For how bad ND played, surprising they kept it as close as they did. UConn's run at the end of the first half was the killer. Hard to beat a team that is equal to you 4 times in a row.
You're right carmine, but with Stewart playing at the level where she's at right now, they are no longer equal. She will be a dominant force in the game over the next three years.
Yikes!! It saddens me that this team is so much better than they played tonite. Very uncharacteristic. UConn picked the right time to peak and ND picked the wrong time to go cold.
Congrats for a great season. Too bad it had to end like this.
So true, as it is with every sport. Time to get back to ND football
A tough ending, UCONN wins the one that really counts and that stinks. But congrats to the women on a great year.
