Watch: Notre Dame Wins National Title On Arike Ogunbowale Buzzer-Beater

Arike Ogunbowale's game-winner.

The 2018 NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament just ended in unreal fashion.

Notre Dame's Arike Ogunbowale, the hero of Friday night's win over UConn, did it again. After hitting the game-winner against the Huskies, she made another shot for the ages.

Ogunbowale drained an impossible rainbow three-pointer from the corner with 0.1 seconds remaining to give Notre Dame a 61-58 victory over Mississippi State. The Fighting Irish scored the last eight points of the game.

The win gave Notre Dame its second national title in program history. The last one came in 2001.

Here is Ogunbowale's game-winner.

For a Notre Dame team that survived injuries all season and was given almost no chance to beat UConn on Friday, this weekend was an absolute dream come true.

As for Ogunbowale, well, she's a legend. That is a level of clutch you don't see often in sports.

Congrats to the Fighting Irish and hats off to Mississippi State for a fantastic final game in women's hoops.
