Villa Maria graduate Kayla McBride and the Notre Dame women’s basketball team will meet archrival Connecticut in the Final Four tonight.
The Fighting Irish (35-1) will go for their third straight appearance in the NCAA championship game and will attempt to beat UConn (33-4) for the fourth consecutive time this season. Today’s game is scheduled to tip off at 8:30 p.m. and will be televised by ESPN.
The winner will advance to Tuesday night’s title game against the winner of tonight’s first game between Louisville (28-8) and California (32-3), which is set for a 6:30 start.
McBride, a 5-foot 11-inch junior guard, has been one a roll lately after playing three of her best games against UConn. McBride joined teammate Skylar Diggins on the 10-player Women’s Basketball Coaches Association All-America Team Friday. Earlier, she was named a third-team All-American by the Associated Press.
