Watch Ogunbowale beat the buzzer to deliver the Irish a title

Arike Ogunbowale heroics

There was little Arike Ogunbowale could have done to top her game-winning shot Friday night that ended UConn's perfect season in the Final Four semifinals. 

But, like she and Notre Dame have done all season, she found a way. Even better, she found a way to top it. In the national championship game.

Inbounding the ball with three seconds remaining in a 58-58 game against Mississippi State, Ogunbowale hoisted an off-balanced 3-pointer in the corner in from of the Irish's bench to give Notre Dame the lasting lead with 0.1 seconds left in regulation. The shot landed Notre Dame its second title in school history and first since 2001.

Ogunbowale finished with 18 points while her only 3 on the day came on that final shot. She was named the Final Four's most oustanding player after scored a combined 45 points in two games in Columbus. 

Her first game-winner of the Final Four weekend came in overtime on Friday that ended UConn's 36-0 season. You can watch that shot below:
