I say Notre Dame +6. They have been crushing everyone and want revenge from the lost last year against A & M. Gridner is the best player but Notre Dame has the second best player in Diggins and better teammates in my opinion.

horrible matchup for nd. nd tallest player on the team is only 6'3", only way for nd to win this game if they shoot lights out from 3pt land, there is noway they going to have easy layup with griner guarding the paint area.

over 

 

watch for 2H line......First game BAY dominated 1H and it was pretty even in the 2H .....As I could see BAY pulling away, I also believe ND is capable of the upset....It is just alot easier to argue & justify being on BAY becuz of B.Griner

Notre Dame has been playing physical against teams this whole tournament. I don't see this game being any different. Notre Dame lost in the championship game last year....they're playing with a chip on their shoulders. Griner will get her points....but the other Baylor players will have to step up their game. I see Notre Dame stopping the other players on the team. This is the national championship....all the pressure etc, is on Baylor. Notre Dame will want to get out and run....meaning less block shots for Griner and keeping out of the paint. Notre Dame may not win this game but those are the reasons why I'm taking the Irish +6.

well some one has been watching ESPN a lot but hasnt watched the teams play ---

Diggins cant do it all by herself, ND will be one dimensional against baylor they will only rely on the mid-long range shooting --- Baylor you and all the world knows this, the only way this is close is if ND have the hot hand and nail it --- unfortunately for the irish they lack, size,speed and athletisism--and they have no player that can guard or defend sasquatch--- grinner will have a huge night just as  davis had , but the advantage is that grinner will be able to score  above smallest ND players

I haven't watched ESPN in weeks. I listened to the ND and UCONN game on the radio. Notre Dame has looked impressive throughout the tournament as well. All the pressure is on Baylor. I'm not saying Notre Dame is going to win...I'm saying they cover the six.

even worse my friend

i have watched this girls play -- ND had to fight hard to get past uconn---Baylor didnt had a walk in the park because Stanford has teh athletes and had a lot of time to prepare on how to try--to contain Griner--- Baylor already faced ND and won by DD and the mistake ND made was getting in to a track meet --unfortunately , playing slow --stanford style wont do any goopd because ND girls lack size and athletisism that stanford girls have , Baylor will pretty much do what kty did yesterday, dominate inside--and score from everywhere --- if ure taking the pts on Nd is because ur saying they had a shot at winning---wich they dont, and if u think ND is no a mission--Baylor does too

Who cares if they had to fight hard? It is a tournament...survive and advance. Connecticut and Notre Dame was close...the teams play in the same conference. You must be on Baylor large...what is your score prediction?

Baylor is the Kentucky of women's basketball...Sparty?  if ND focuses on stopping Baylor's other players who's going to stop Griner?  Baylor beat ND by 13 earlier this year...If you think the rest of Baylor's team is a bunch of slouches you're sorely mistaken...teams have had to focus on Griner all year and Sims, Williams and Hayden have shredded the opposition...i don't think ND has the horses to stop Griner anyway as she went for 32 last time they played..they're too short.   Women's basketball is pretty much a joke and this game is no different even though they are both 1 seeds...Baylor by DD.

This whole forum is against Notre Dame lol.

Locked in Notre Dame +6.5

Risking $550 to win $500.

My point is Griner will get her points...Notre Dame needs to contain the other players. It is almost game time. Good luck everyone.
