CNN A season ago, there was tragedy. This year, a star went down, but the season ends with a championship. Baylor, the top overall seed of the women's NCAA basketball tournament, has won its third national title, defeating No.
It's Baylor's first title since , which also came against the Fighting Irish. Baylor led by as many as 17, but after a leg injury to Bears star forward Lauren Cox in the third quarter, the Irish surged back to take the lead with just over three minutes left.
But Baylor regrouped, as Chloe Jackson, who led Baylor with 26 points in her final collegiate game, hit what turned out to be the dagger with 3. WFinalFour pic.
But unlike her clutch shot to win the championship last year, there were no heroics this time. The senior missed her first free throw, and then she made the second despite intentionally trying to miss.
She finished with 31 points. Read More "It's tough," Ogunbowale said.

After being the hero in this game one year ago, Ogunbowale missed a free throw with under 2 seconds to play that could have sent the title game into OT.
She got us here. We had to finish the job for her. Baylor forward Lauren Cox is assisted off the court after she went down with injury. I just know when you lose a big-time player in the middle of a national championship, you're not supposed to win.

Of Mulkey's three titles, it's the second time that Baylor head coach is sharing it with her daughter. In , Baylor went when Makenzie Robertson Fuller was a guard on that title team.
She's now in her fourth season on Mulkey's staff, serving as associate director of basketball operations. In November , Fuller lost her unborn child, Scout Marie.

In October, Fuller gave birth to a son, Kannon , who Mulkey had with her on the dais after Friday's win and on the floor Sunday after winning the championship. I've done both in the last year and a half.
The Fighting Irish had more ACL tears four than losses, and those injuries last season left Notre Dame with just seven scholarship players.
And the way they won in was breathtaking, with buzzer-beaters by Ogunbowale in the semifinal and championship games against Connecticut and Mississippi State, respectively. Finishing with 31 points, Arike Ogunbowale couldn't quite match last year's heroics for Notre Dame, missing a free throw in the final 1.
It was different entering the season. The Irish returned several of their players from that championship team.
They were the preseason No. It's something she alluded to before Sunday's final.
But we did. We were truly the defending champs. It was a burden. We just didn't come out ready. That was disappointing.
