Notre Dame Wins Women’s National Basketball Championship on Last-Second Shot

With three seconds remaining in a 58-58 tie game in the Women’s National Championship of college basketball in Columbus, Ohio on Apr. 1, Arike Ogunbowale sank in a three-pointer to ultimately give her Notre Dame Fighting Irish the national title victory — the school’s second-ever in its history, in addition to their 2001 title.

It was Ogunbowale’s second game-winning shot of the weekend — her first was on Mar. 30 at the Final Four semifinal which helped Notre Dame past previously unbeaten UConn 91-89 in overtime.

ESPN’s Adam Amin called both games’ final moments.

Notre Dame head coach Muffet McGraw, in her 31st season, was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame at the start of the 2017-18 season.
