Kayla McBride scores 28 to lead Notre Dame to the national title game for the third time in four years (Tuesday, 8:30 p.m. ET vs. fellow unbeaten Connecticut on ESPN).
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Kayla McBride seemingly did whatever she wanted, and enjoyed herself while she did it.
The All-American senior guard shed defenders with behind-the-back dribbles and quick cross-overs before scoring. She set the tone, refusing for Notre Dame's pursuit of a perfect season end, and her Irish teammates followed her lead into Tuesday night's championship game.
In one of the most impressive games of her career, McBride scored 28 points to lead Notre Dame to an 87-61 win over Maryland Sunday night.
"She was truly special," Notre Dame coach Muffet McGraw said. "She was having fun out there and that was the key. She was hitting shots from all over."
