2012 NCAA Women's Championship: Baylor Looking To Clinch Undefeated Season Against Notre Dame

The NCAA Championship was awarded to the Kentucky Wildcats on Monday night, but there is still one game left to be played in the collegiate basketball season. The women get their shot at a title tonight, and the Baylor Bears have a chance for a perfect season. They'll take on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish on Tuesday, the game starts at 8 pm and can be found on ESPN.

Simply put, Baylor, and particularly their big presence inside Brittney Griner, have been an absolutely dominating force in college basketball this season. These two teams actually met earlier this year when Baylor was ranked No. 1 in the Country and Notre Dame was No. 3. It was the first big test of the year for the Bears and they were up to the challenge. Griner had 32 points and 14 rebounds in that game, and the Bears got themselves a 94-81 win. Notre Dame will have to be a lot more sound in their defense of Griner if they want to win this game; I'm just not sure that can be done.
