BAYLOR BEARS - 2012 NCAA WOMEN'S NATIONAL CHAMPS

Post  Admin on Wed Apr 04, 2012 2:03 am



History was made in New Orleans, Louisiana as Brittney Griner had 26 points, 13 rebounds, and five blocks to lead the Baylor Bears to a dominating 80-61 victory over the Notre Dame Fighting Irish to become the 2012 NCAA women’s basketball champions. The victory also capped a perfect and unparalleled 40-0 season for the Bears.

Baylor became the 7th women’s team to run through a season unbeaten and the first in NCAA history to win 40 games. It's the second national championship for Baylor, who also won the title in 2005.

Odyssey Sims added 19 points and Destiny Williams had 12 for the Bears, who outrebounded Notre Dame, 46-27 and now have the third unbeaten season in women’s basketball in the last four years. Connecticut, who also went undefeated four times, did it in back-to-back years in 2009 and 2010. Texas and Tennessee also have unbeaten seasons.

Baylor’s victory also gave United States President Barack Obama some bragging rights. He correctly picked Baylor to beat Notre Dame in the title game.
