Everyone went nuts for Notre Dame's insane buzzer beater

Notre Dame beats UConn in OT

The women's Final Four on Friday night was one to remember. 

Mississippi defeated Louisvile in overtime 73-63 in the first game of the evening before Notre Dame beat an undefeated UConn team, 91-89

But Notre Dame didn't just win, but in dramatic fashion. Thanks to a jumper just inside the three-point line from Arike Ogunbowale with one second left in overtime, the Irish will now have a shot at a national title on Sunday. 

The moment caught the attention of many sports fans and famous folks. Here are some of the best reactions for the game: 

Kobe Bryant, who was in attendance in Columbus, gave Ogunbowale a shoutout after the game 

WNBA star and former Notre Dame player Skylar Diggins-Smith was pretty impressed (and at times certainly stressed) with her former squad 

And then there was this. This Titanic Hoops never gets old right?

Two-time Olympic gold medalist and UConn alum Swin Cash offered her congrats: 

NFL quarterback DeShone Kizer and WNBA All Star Chiney Ogwumike gave their love to Notre Dame and Ogunbowale:
