Baylor wins 3rd NCAA women’s basketball championship

Baylor University defeated Notre Dame 82-81 on Sunday to win this year’s women’s NCAA basketball tournament in a thrilling final matchup.

At one point, Baylor had a 17-point lead over Notre Dame, but that fell apart in the third quarter.

During the fourth quarter, with just 3.9 seconds left on the clock, Baylor’s Chloe Jackson made a layup, giving the Lady Bears a two-point lead. Notre Dame’s Arike Ogunbowale was then fouled, but only made one of her free throws, giving Baylor the win by one point.
