NASHVILLE – Muffet McGraw has been on this stage before. Her Notre Dame teams have reached the national championship game on three previous occasions, with a title under their belts in 2001. But with a 37-0 record matched head-to-head with Connecticut’s 39-0 mark, Tuesday’s national championship game is unprecedented.
In past years, the Irish and Huskies have played repeatedly through a rigorous conference schedule. This season though, Tuesday’s encounter is the lone matchup in what has become one of college basketball’s fiercest rivalries.
Krista Blunk caught up with McGraw ahead of the game.
