Aari McDonald’s brilliance is not enough, as Arizona remains in Stanford’s hands in the NCAA title
Aari McDonald’s and Arizona’s history career was short on Stanford in the NCAA Women’s Championship on Sunday.
Or rather, a hair too far.
The 3-bred wild boars were forced to break the clock against the final possession of the Stanford 1-seed national championship, and the wild boars lost to the two cardinals last season against the two cardinals allowed them to win the final possession of the game. . And there was no Arizona coach Adia Barnes who wanted to be more of a player than McDonald, who scored 22 points in the game, three rebounds, two assists and two steals.
McDonald’s 54-53 lead pass with his team and 6.1 seconds left on the clock. He was quickly found to be overwhelmed by four Stanford defenders and unable to pass the ball to his teammates. He still had 3 points to show:
McDonald’s shouldn’t feel embarrassed. He put in the most notable players during the tournament: 22 points against Stanford, 26 points against UConn, 33 points against Indiana and 31 points against Texas A&M. Arizona’s way of losing is obviously disappointing, but McDonald’s seemed to take it easy a lot when it came to talking about the game after reporters:
“What I remember most is this ride. We had a great run in this NCAA Championship,” he said (Via USA Today’s Nancy Armor). “We got a lot that many thought they didn’t do.”
