Who am I?
I'm from Houston, a graduate of the University of Texas, a fan of the Houston Astros and Houston Texans. But this blog will be about the "greater sports", whatever that means.
If you want to be the best, you have to beat the best. And that's just what the Notre Dame Women's basketball team did. The Fighting Irish completed an improbably National Championship season by defeating the seemingly invincible Connecticut Huskies (36-0) and last year's runner up Mississippi State Bulldogs (37-1). But it was the style in which our Sportswoman of the Week defeated them that will make her legend. Arike Ogunbowale didn't shoot particularly well in either game, but was unstoppable at the end. Ogunbowale first slayed the Huskies with a 19 foot jumper with just a second left to break a tie in overtime. Then against the Bulldogs, she hit a fall away three pointer under guard as the buzzer sounded. She averaged 22.5 points her game in willing her team to the title. The Irish overcame injuries to four players throughout the season to complete the improbably run, and Arike Ogunbowale made it happen as our Sportswoman of the Week!
