Diggins puts ND ahead 63-62 on another full-court drive with 1:21 left, but a short bank by Faris has UConn back up at 64-63 with 53 ticks left.
Why not? OVERTIME. 64-64. McBride misses an off-balance 12-foot jumper cutting through the middle with two seconds left. Diggins missed second free throw at 64-64 with 27.2 seconds left.
UConn scored baskets on its three possession in OT and ND turnover it over its first three times. 70-66, UConn with the ball and 57 seconds left.
Why Not? DOUBLE OT. McBride hits ND's first three of the night with 5.2 second left in first OT to make it 71-71.
UConn missed three 1-and-1s in the closing minute, and then 1-of-2 on its final attempt to keep the Irish within striking distance.
McBride fouls out at 2:51 ith the Irish trailing 77-75. Senior Kaila Turner replaces her.
Why not? TRIPLE OT. Continued foul line woes by UConn and Kaila Turner's jumper from the corner with 45 seconds tied it at 81. ND had the ball on the final possession but a drive by Diggins led to a turnover.
Haven't seen Coach Geno throw the water bottle up in the air in frustration yet, a la Rick Pitino several weeks ago in the same venue.
Why not bring it over half court and call time out and set up a play?
CITY OF CHAMPYINZ!!!!!!
Irish score 8 unanswered for 91-83 lead in 3 OT with less than 1:10 remaining. Loyd scores a field goal and two free throws, Diggins steals and goes for a full-court drive and Braker hits two free throws
Icing now being applied with two Diggins free throws at 49.5 to make it 93-83. Diggins with 29 points.
Irish win 96-87 for school record tying 23rd straight victory, 28-1 record and perfect 16-0 Big East mark for outright league title. Amazingly that's six wins in last seven meetings with the Huskies.
