2012 NCAA Women's Championship, Baylor Vs. Notre Dame Recap: Bears And Brittney Griner Dominate Second Half To Capture Title

The Baylor Bears finished off their magical season at 40-0 after a dominating 80-61 win over Notre Dame in the 2012 Women's NCAA Championship. The No.1 overall seed was lead by the unanimous player of the year, Brittney Griner, who finished with 26 points and 13 rebounds. Griner also added five blocks on the defensive end to lead the Bears to the first ever 40 win season in women's college basketball.

The Bears were nearly perfect in the second half, as Griner went eight for nine from the field in the second and Baylor went off for a 46-point half. They shot better than 60 percent from the floor over the final 20 minutes. Odyssey Sims fouled out but not before controlling the entire game from the backcourt and adding 19 points. It was Kim Mulkey's second national title but obviously this was her most dominant team, and will go down as one of the best teams in women's college basketball history.
