Fighting Irish are headed to the Final Four for the 3rd consecutive year! #ncaaWFF— NCAA Women's BKB (@NCAAWomensBKB) April 3, 2013
Kayla McBride & Natalie Achonwa join the Most Outstanding Player Skylar Diggins on Norfolk All Regional Team.— Angelo Di Carlo (@angdicarlowndu) April 3, 2013
Fittingly, point guard Skylar Diggins dominated the narrative of this game: after Diggins left the game early in the first half due to foul trouble, Notre Dame went cold and fell behind by as many as 9 points. Diggins re-entered the game, found their rhythm, and ended up running away with it in the first half.
