Irish Women's Basketball Team hits the road for the Final Four

NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- Their bags are packed and their game plan is set!

The Irish women are on the road to Denver for the Final Four.

The Notre Dame women left for the Mile High City on Thursday.

They will have a few days to rest ahead of their big match-up with fellow #1 SEED UConn.

This will be the team's eighth time to play in two years. The Irish said they are ready!

"I think we're battle-tested. Playing in the Big East, we play against tough team like that. We're grateful to have a very good team in UConn consistently every year to play," said Skylar Diggins.

The Irish will go head to head with the Huskies on Sunday night.

Tip-off is set for 6:30 p.m. on ESPN.
