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. “It hurts no matter how much you lose by,” Irish coach Muffet McGraw said. “The feeling last year was different, we let it slip away. This one got out of hand. There was frustration everyone didn’t play as well as they could have.” You have to give a lot of credit to Baylor’s head coach, Kim Mulkey. She found a way to bring this team together and make champions out of them. A key point that most forget is, Baylor’s starting 5 will be returning next season. Therefore, it won’t be easy to face them anytime soon. Most Outstanding Player went to Brittney Griner and that was well deserved. No one impacted the game the way she was able to. Her scoring wasn’t even a factor, but her ability to completely change the pace of the game for her team is what does it. She is an amazing athlete that I’m sure we look forward to watching for years to come. Again, congrats to the Lady Bears on an AMAZING season. We thank you for the memories and making history for all of us to witness!
