Women’s Basketball Team: Final Four Bound

Mar 27, 2012; Raleigh, NC, USA; Notre Dame Fighting Irish celebrate after beating the Maryland Terrapins 80-49 in the finals of the Raleigh region in the 2012 NCAA women

 

After an amazing performance last night by Skylar Diggins  the Irish Women’s Basketball Team is heading to Denver, Colorado, for the Final Four!  Notre Dame thrashed the Maryland Terrapins by 31 points, lead by Skylar Diggins’ triple double recording 22 points, 10 rebounds,and 11 assists.  The Irish controlled the scoreboard from the eleven minute  mark in first half  all the way to the end of the game.  This comes as no surprise in this tournament since the Irish have won every game by double digits!  This team seems to be on a mission to return to championship game, but this time they plan on coming home with the trophy.  This will not be an easy task as they will have to face a Connecticut team who has been to the Final Four the past 5 years in a row.

Although the Irish have beaten the Huskies twice this year they did lose the last game they played in the Big East Championship Game.  Expect a fight to finish between these two rivals, whoever comes out on top will have to earn it.   Coach Auriemma and Coach McGraw have both been to this stage several times before so expect both teams to be ready for the big stage.  Tune in on Sunday, April 1st, at 6:30 eastern time on ESPN.
