Skylar Diggins has accomplished nearly everything she could have imagined in her career at Notre Dame. The only thing missing is a national championship.

To get another chance at that elusive title, Diggins will have to help the Fighting Irish beat rival Connecticut for an unprecedented fourth straight time this season.

These two teams have had the best rivalry in the sport over the past few years and are ready for the potential final chapter as Notre Dame leaves for the ACC next season.

Two years ago, the Huskies won the first three meetings from the Irish before Notre Dame shocked them in the national semifinals. That started an unprecedented run in which the Irish have taken over the rivalry, winning seven of the last eight overall and the past two meetings in the Final Four.
