HISTORY..40-0 | An Undefeated Baylor University Women’s Basketball Team Wins National Championship!!

~Perfection Personified~

Brittney Griner

The Baylor University Women’s Basketball team has done the unthinkable, winning a National Championship without losing a single game, becoming the first women’s or men’s team in Division I history to go 40-0.

The Lady Bears capped off their historic season with a win over last seasons NCAA runner-up the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame.

2012 Wade Trophy winner Brittney Griner came up big for Baylor, scoring 26 points, grabbing 13 rebounds and 5 blocks to help the Lady Bears finish off an undefeated season with an 80-61 win over Notre Dame in the national championship game.

The 6’8″ Griner was too much for Notre Dame in the second half as Baylor took control of the game.  Griner was named the Most Outstanding Player in the tournament.

Sophomore guard Odyssey Sims dropped 19 points and played stellar defense on Irish point guard Skylar Diggins for the Bears, while Destiny Williams added 12.

This is the second National Championship for Baylor University (2005).
