Notre Dame then out-scored UConn 11-4 in the OT to give the Huskies their 2nd loss of the season winning by the score of 74-67. Notre Dame's All-American candidates Sr. G Natalie Novosel and Jr. G Skylar Diggins led teh way for the Fighting Irish with 20pts and 22pts., respectively while UConn was led by their All-American candidate So. G Bria Hartley who finished with a game-high 25pts.
