After losing to Notre Dame three times this season -- and in the past two Final Fours -- UConn finally found a way to beat the Irish and Skylar Diggins to return to the NCAA championship game.
UConn and Notre Dame know each other too well to have their fourth game of the season come down to X's and O's. Sunday's semifinal is simply about which team has more playmakers step up.
The right side of the bracket? Business as usual. But the left pits two teams few picked to reach New Orleans. On Sunday, it's Notre Dame vs. UConn and Louisville vs. Cal as a trio of Big East teams crashes the party in the Big Easy.
In one critical 13-second sequence, Skylar Diggins and Brittany Mallory sealed Notre Dame's overtime victory over UConn.
Skylar Diggins is betting her dynamic game, combined with a born-and-bred belief that any team she's playing for can beat any team she's playing against, will lead Notre Dame to an NCAA title.
