It was a shot of a lifetime and junior guard Arike Ogunbowale nailed it for Notre Dame.
She threw a 3-pointer from the corner with 0.1 seconds left on the clock, beating Mississippi State 61-58, and giving Notre Dame its second women’s basketball title Sunday night in Columbus, Ohio.
Notre Dame scored its first title 17 years ago — also on Easter Sunday.
“We just kept fighting, and thank you, Jesus, on Easter Sunday,” Notre Dame Coach Muffet McGraw told The New York Times.
Ogunbowale was named the most outstanding player in the come-from-behind victory. She scored 16 of her 18 points in the second half.
