NCAA Championship: Women’s Basketball vs. Oklahoma State University

and | Saturday, March 29, 2014

Maybe it was the noise of the crowd at Purcell Pavilion. Maybe it was the pressure of the Sweet 16, or the pedigree of the Notre Dame program or simply the talent and speed of the opposing Irish. But whatever the reason, fifth-seeded Oklahoma State found itself buried under an 18-3 deficit less than five minutes into the game against No. 1-seed Notre Dame on Saturday afternoon, a margin the Irish guarded en route to an 89-72 victory.

The win puts the Irish (34-0, 16-0 ACC) into the Elite Eight, where they will face No. 2-seed Baylor (32-4, 16-2 Big 12) at home Monday night.
