Brittney Griner enjoying cutting down the net after her Baylor Bears defeated the Notre Dame Irish 80-61
There is nothing better than being able to watch a game and witness history. Last night we saw the Lady Baylor Bears win the NCAA Women’s Championship and go 40-0, a feat that no men or women’s team has accomplished.It truly was a sight to see these ladies come together as a cohesive unit and take down, what some viewed as the better team.
They battled a senior filled Notre Dame team, that never seemed to gel while on the court during the game. I don’t want to say they were intimidated, but many of their stars went cold during the 2nd half. They also had their star defender Devereaux Peters in foul trouble with more than 8 minutes to go in the first half. Even their leading scorer, Natalie Novosel, only scored five points. There is just no way they were going to be able to win that way. Last night, Notre Dame became the third team to lose in back-to-back championship games.
