  • Notre Dame and Baylor to meet in Sunday's championship game

Baylor led by 12 points when Cox got hurt against Notre Dame, which tied the game before the Lady Bears went ahead to stay on a driving layup by Jackson in the closing seconds.

She said she doesn't know much about her injury but that she'll "get it fixed, whatever it is".

Baylor recovered after blowing a 17-point lead and losing a star player, beating Notre Dame 82-81 for the NCAA women's basketball championship Sunday night when 2018 tournament hero Arike Ogunbowale missed a foul shot in the final seconds.

"We have the best freshman recruiting class in the country", Baylor coach Kim Mulkey said. "We kind of knew they were going to come the way they came in the fourth". That team is so good, so talented. The Irish (35-4), meantime, went 5-for-8 from the free-throw line down the stretch.

Arike Ogunbowale sat in a quiet Notre Dame locker room, and there were no tears from the senior. And she did, just like we knew she would. "And for LC (Cox), she got us here, and we had to finish the job for her". Mulkey was the pigtailed point guard on that team that won the national championship in the first year of the NCAA era.

- The Fighting Irish fans hoped to defend their title, but Baylor University didn't want to see another Notre Dame win.

The 11-point combined differential for the three games in the Final Four was the closest in the history of the tournament, topping last season's 15-point margin. "I just went in there and let everything go". She made a shot with one second remaining to beat UConn in the semifinals, then hit a tiebreaking 3-pointer with one-tenth of a second left to top the Bulldogs in the title game.

As it had so many times in the past two years, and the last week alone, Notre Dame fought back from a significant deficit against Baylor in the national championship game. "But they kept punching", guard Marina Mabrey said. But there were some truly great things to take away from the women's Final Four weekend as a whole, and I'm choosing to focus on those.

It wasn't without the last bit of drama after Jackson's 12-footer went down - a familiar play, one the Bears ran late against OR as well. Her left leg got injured on the play, and after a few minutes of being attended to on the court - in obvious pain - Cox was wheeled off it in a wheelchair. Her mom was tearing up in the stands, and her dad had his hands over his face.

Cox is the leader on court, but Mulkey is the leader of the program. Forward Lauren Cox added 21. "She's the reason why we're here". I would have liked for us to make one more layup. "You go back to Arizona State, against UConn, she came in and helped us win", Messer said.

Using braces, she was able to return to the bench late in the fourth quarter. Just how this incredible game should be.

Mulkey, 56, has won national championships as a player, assistant coach, and three now as a head coach. "But sometimes you just get a group of girls. this bunch had it". That's her five-month-old grandson, Kannon.

Sunday's game marked the eighth time in the past 20 years that there have been two women head coaches in the title game but only the second time since 2008.
