Women's Final Four 2011, UConn vs. Notre Dame Score: Skylar Diggins Has Irish On Verge Of Huge Upset

Don’t look now but with 7 minutes left in the second half, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish have a 55-47 lead on the mighty UConn Huskies.

Diggins has 24 points on the night and is leading the Irish charge, as they’ve outscored the Huskies 29-15 in the half so far. Brittany Mallory’s return to the game and subsequent three-pointer helped power Notre Dame’s lead even more. Natalie Novosel is 2nd on the team with 17 points so far.

Maya Moore leads the Huskies with 22 points but she only has seven points in the half so far. She’ll need to do a lot more in order to save the season for UConn. Bria Hartley has added ten for the Huskies but no other UConn player has double-digits.

The Irish have not only kept up their shooting from the first half (48%) but improved upon it and are now shooting 51% on the night.

As we get down to it, keep an eye on UConn blog The UConn Blog (duh) and Notre Dame blog Rakes of Mallow.
