Women's Final Four 2011, UConn vs. Notre Dame Final Score: Irish Shock Maya Moore, Huskies In 72-63 Upset

How do you top Texas A&M’s upset of Stanford to kick off the Final Four? By having UConn, mighty UConn, lose to Notre Dame. That’s how.

Down 32-26 at the half, Notre Dame rallied behind Skylar Diggins and Natalie Novosel and held off Maya Moore’s late charge to finish off the epic upset. The Irish advance to Tuesday night’s championship against Texas A&M in search of their 2nd National Title and first in ten years.

Moore finished with 36 points, including 12 straight as she tried to rally the Huskies from a 12-point deficit. Moore missed critical free-throws late and the rally fell short. Moore’s career ends with two national titles, three POY awards and only four losses.

Notre Dame was 0-3 against the Huskies this season but found their touch at the perfect time. The Irish shot 52% on the night, compared to UConn’s 42%.
