For all of UConn's dominance on Sunday, we shouldn't forget that ND has stood toe-to-toe with Goliath and come out victorious more often than not (recently speaking, of course).
It's also to forget the number of UConn fans that were telling us to enjoy our little run last year because after losing Peters, Mallory, and Novacel, that we'd have to regroup and face UConn's dynamic freshmen. Well, we found a way to do that somehow.
It is disappointing not to have cashed in on one of these Final Fours, but it's telling that aside from UConn, we've been the only other team to have made the last 3 final fours.
As ND fans, we're prone to believing we have short windows to take advantage of opportunities. Muffett is doing a nice job reloading with her program.
