Mississippi State's Vic Schaefer named USBWA National Coach of the Year

It's right there, engraved on the side of their runner-up rings: "ONE MORE".

Mississippi State had taken advantage of a Notre Dame dry spell early in the second quarter in which shots simply wouldn't fall for the Irish and worked to frustrate them even more with lightning-quick Jordan Danberry and Holmes, whom Coach Vic Schaefer had sent off the bench seemingly for the sole goal of bothering Notre Dame's guards on defense. The Dashers went 26-2 and won their first Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association title that season, when she was chosen for the McDonald's all-American Game. I'm also sure that some of them are blaming coach Vic Schaefer for the defeat.

It was the second game-winning shot in three days after the guard made a two-pointer in the closing seconds to beat CT in the Final Four.

That drive and motivation surely came to bear in the final seconds of the national championship game, when Ogunbowale "never thought for a second" she would miss the game-winner. The Bulldogs knocked off Nicholls State, Oklahoma State, North Carolina State and UCLA before a thrilling win over Louisville in the Final Four. Marina Mabrey answered with Notre Dame's first three of the night to put the Irish within two with 1:35 remaining. The Bulldogs switched on the screen but weren't able to deny the pass to Ogunbowale.

"We weren't really playing our game at all", senior forward Kathryn Westbeld said. "Me and (Roshunda Johnson) were supposed to deny her and not let her catch it". Ogunbowale's shot was on constant play on the bus.

"I've been going to religious schools my whole life", the 5-foot-8 guard said in the fall of 2014.

In real time, the trajectory of the high-arcing shot looked true, but the story line seemed too good to be true.


"I definitely have one more year before I think about anything like that", she said. They knew, in spite of the impressive odds stacked against them, that they were going to beat UConn.

"Ice water in her veins", said Bartel. "She is an All-American".

Shepard opened the second half with a layup, and Mabrey converted a Mississippi State turnover into a driving layup plus a foul shot. And we just kept fighting. If Tea makes that shot, State probably wins. When you are up five with 1:40 to go in the game, it's my job to get them home and I didn't get them home.

You know the rest now. But the Irish then went on an 18-1 run that extended into the fourth quarter.

The game came down to the wire as MS stole the ball and Notre Dame stole it back in transition.

The Irish also saw a late lead slip away in the overtime, with Crystal Dangerfield tying the score for UConn on a 3-pointer with 27 seconds left. Young then made three free throws over the next 2 minutes to give the Irish a five-point lead with 43 seconds left. And no one could hit a 3-pointer or keep Mississippi State center Teaira McCowan off the glass. William appeared to force a turnover, but the Bulldogs gave the ball right back to the Fighting Irish as they tried to push it up court. The irony Sunday night was that she had a poor shooting performance otherwise, scoring 18 points on 6-of-21 (28.6 percent) from the floor. "I mean, this has been my goal since freshman year", said Ogunbowale.
