It may not have been pretty, but Stanford got the job done in its final game of the regular

Friday night’s game at the Tacoma Dome between the #3 O’Dea Fighting Irish and the #5 Camas Papermakers lived up to all the hype.

Natalie Novosel banked in a shot from the foul line with under a second left to lift No. 4 Notre Dame to a 56-54 win over seventh-ranked Duke in the Junkanoo Jam final on Saturday night.
