DENVER, CO (AP) - Unfinished business. It's been the mantra for both Notre Dame and Baylor all year. Now, one of them will cut down the nets Tuesday night in the women's national title game.
The Irish beat Connecticut 83-75 in overtime Sunday night, and the Lady Bears denied Stanford 59-47 at the Pepsi Center.
Natalie Novosel scored 20 points to help the Irish reach the championship for the second straight year. They lost 76-70 to Texas A&M in the title game last year in Indianapolis.
AP Player of the Year Brittney Griner led a balanced, efficient Baylor offense with 13 points. The Lady Bears will attempt to become the first basketball team in NCAA history to go 40-0.
The Irish are 35-3.
