NOW: Irish beat UConn, advance to title game

TAMPA, Fla. - A year ago, Notre Dame women's basketball learned to thrive with its back against the wall, and those lessons paid off in this year's NCAA Tournament once again.

Down nine in the fourth quarter to their biggest rival on the biggest stage in the Final Four, the Irish again overcame it all.

Notre Dame erased the deficit to beat UConn 81-76 in the national semifinals and advance to the national title game for the second-straight year.
