Irish shock UConn in semis – NCAA.com

INDIANAPOLIS — It’s not often Maya Moore meets her match. Skylar Diggins was up to the task, and Notre Dame will play for a national championship because of it.

The sensational sophomore guard scored 28 points and hot-shooting Notre Dame upset UConn 72-63 on Sunday night, ending the brilliant career of Moore and the Huskies’ quest for a third consecutive national championship.

Ten years after their last title, the Irish will be playing for another one Tuesday night against Texas A&M, which beat Stanford 63-62 in the first semifinal. The Aggies scored with 3 seconds left in a back-and-forth game to set up the improbable championship game that features no top seeds for the first time since 1994.
