2012 Women's NCAA Final Four: UConn, Notre Dame Head To Overtime Tied At 67-67

UConn and Notre Dame played a pitched national semifinal in the 2012 Final Four — and then an insane final minute happened to send the Big East rivals to overtime tied at 67-67.

Kelly Faris got fouled twice on drives in the final minute, including once after a steal on a possession with Notre Dame looking to hit a game-winner, and hit all four of her free throws to give the Huskies a 67-65 lead.

But after Skylar Diggins missed a runner with seconds to go, Natalie Novosel got a follow to fall, tying the game, and Tiffany Hayes failed to get a shot on the subsequent possession, setting up bonus basketball in Denver.

One key for UConn: Stefanie Dolson, hero of the first half, will be playing with four fouls.
