Kobe Bryant pronounces Arike Ogunbowale's 'life complete' after NCAA title-winning shot

Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

Her jumper in overtime Friday night gave Notre Dame a 91-89 victory in overtime against powerhouse UConn.

Scoring 14 of her 18 points in the second half, she said: "It just felt right".

After Ogunbowale first claimed to be channeling the "Mamba mentality", following her game-winner Friday against the Huskies, Bryant replied on Twitter that his was a pro-Connecticut family but that "we love seeing great players making great plays".

But the Fighting Irish (35-3) lived up to their name by outscoring the Bulldogs 44-28 in the second half, mounting the largest comeback in NCAA Championship history. The final score was 61-58.

Marina Mabrey hit a 3-pointer from the wing and then Jackie Young had a shot in the lane to tie it.

She got the ball and sent it in for the win, giving Notre Dame its second title in program history and first since 2001.

"It's Easter Sunday, and all the Catholics were praying for us", said McGraw, who was wearing floral shoes in honor of the holiday.

And with a deeper bench than the now famously-depleted Irish, the Bulldogs could afford to expend some extra energy chasing the Irish ball-handlers around. After Mississippi State missed the go ahead lay-up 28 seconds left, and a couple of turnovers from both teams, the Bulldogs fouled the Irish to stop an easy transition lay-up with 3 seconds left.

Autism advocates hope to foster awareness and acceptance
In Kenya, no official statistics have been released, however the Autism Society of Kenya had estimated prevalence of 4% in 2007. According to her, once these treatments and trainings are done, it will be easier for the children to integrated into society.

In the championship game, the Irish fought their way back from a 15-point deficit to win in the final second.

But we give the edge to Ogunbowale because of her dramatic flair, her spectacular sense of timing - buzzer-beaters in consecutive games - and the degree of difficulty, particularly on the clincher.

"It hurts right now", said Mississippi State coach Vic Schaefer, whose team lost in the national finals for a second straight season. MSU (37-2) backed Blair Schaefer off inbounder Jackie Young to protect against a pass to Jessica Shepard in the post. They played their hearts out... She finished the game 6 of 21 from the floor though she was 5 of 7 from the charity stripe. MS lost in last year's national championship to SC.

A back and forth fourth quarter got away from the Irish for a moment after the Bulldogs hit a three-point shot late in the shot clock with just under two minutes to go.

The Fighting Irish closed the third quarter on a 16-1 run to tie the game at 41 entering the final 10 minutes. Mississippi State stormed back, finishing with an 11-2 run of its own to erase the Notre Dame lead.

The Irish stepped up their play after a awful first half. "But the last play, there was just a lot going on". The junior from Milwaukee nailed a three-pointer that hit nothing but net as she flew toward the baseline.

Mississippi State controlled most of the game, leading by 13 at halftime. To his left, sat his four seniors - three of whom were part of 126 victories over the past four seasons. That was five less than the previous mark for futility set by Syracuse in 2016 against UConn.
