Notre Dame Women's Basketball | Apr. 9, 2014 | Notre Dame Athletics
Notre Dame and coach Muffet McGraw have had more success against Connecticut than any other women's basketball program since 2000-01.
The Irish, the nation's best shooting team, struggled to put the ball in the basketball Tuesday night. With their shooting woes, they couldn't keep up with Connecticut in the first NCAA championship matchup of undefeated teams and lost to the rival Huskies 79-58.
It was the lowest scoring game this season for Notre Dame (37-1), which had its season ended by UConn for a second straight year after losing to the Huskies in the national semifinal a year ago. Both losses sting for an Irish program that had won seven of the previous nine against UConn coming into the showdown.
