Halftime In Denver: Connecticut 36, Notre Dame 33

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
As expected, it's a close one in Denver. And given how the Irish played for much of the first half, head coach Muffet McGraw has got to pleased that it's a one-possession game.

Kayla McBride gave Notre Dame a much needed boost before the break, hitting a tough, tough buzzer-beater from the paint to cut a five-point deficit to three.

Natalie Novosel leads the Irish offense with 11 points, while Devereaux Peters has eight.

If the Irish are to advance to Tuesday's championship game, they will have to do a much better job of defending the backdoor cut and shutting down Connecticut center Stefanie Dolson, who led all scorers with 12 points in the first half.
