COLUMBUS, Ohio - Junior Arike Ogunbowale will have a difficult time her senior of topping the story-book endings to this one.

Ogunbowale had a three-point shot with 0.1 seconds remaining to give the Fighting Irish a 61-58 win over Mississippi State Monday in the Women's NCAA Championship game.

Notre Dame only was in the title game because Ogunbowale hit a step-back two-point shot on Friday to knock off unbeaten and top-seeded Connecticut, 91-89.

The junior guard from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is a finalist for the Wooden Award as the country's top college basketball player. She is the daughter of Yolanda Block, the three-sport Harlem star (volleyball, basketball and softball), who pitched the Huskies to the 1980 IHSA state championship before going on to star at DePaul.
