N.D. Women Play Tonight For Another National NCAA Basketball Tourney Title

Fighting Irish Media

TAMPA – For the seventh time in program history, the Notre Dame women's basketball team will compete for the NCAA Championship title.   At 6 p.m. on ESPN, the Irish will square off against the No. 1 overall seed in Baylor.

 It's been a somewhat difficult road back to the title game for Muffet McGraw and her Notre Dame women's basketball team.

The Fighting Irish came into the season as the favorites to repeat as champions, with nearly everyone back from last season's team.

McGraw admitted that with the lofty expectations, the Irish weren't handling the pressure well early in the year and weren't having any fun.

That changed after a meeting right before Christmas. Now, Notre Dame faces Baylor for the NCAA title.
