Baylor enters the contest with an impeccable 39-0 record, playing against a Notre Dame team it last saw in November and beat 94-81. Another win would make the Lady Bears the first team in history to go 40-0 in a season.
Led by Brittney Griner, who went off for 32 points and 14 rebounds in that earlier game against Notre Dame, Baylor is rolling and hasn't finished in a single-digit game in over a month when the Bears dropped the Texas A&M Aggies, 69-62 on Feb. 27.
The circumstances for Notre Dame don't look great, even though the Irish have played strong as well. Here is what beat writer Brent Zwerneman said about his 79-65 outcome prediction in Baylor's favor:
