No. 1 Stanford plays No. 3 Arizona in the National Championship Game of the 2021 NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament.
The Cardinal win its first national championship since 1992 after surviving a one-point win in the title game against the Wildcats, right after winning their Final Four game by one point as well. Sophomore Haley Jones led Stanford with 17 points, including what would become the game-winning basket and free throw in the final minute of the game.

  • 5 secs left and McDonald tries to ISO (a la Iverson) while the entire Stanford team swarms her. No screens or cuts whatsoever, bad coaching IMO

  • Horrible last shot attempt. Had plenty of time to try to get a better look or pass it off to someone else that wasn't practically triple teamed. I get they wanted the ball in her hands but once she couldn't drive she should of looked for a pass or taken a better shot somehow. Girl at the top of the key was wide open but it was too late cause she had too many defenders on her to do anything. Great game and great efforts by both teams but also great defensive scheme on that last series by Stanford.

  • “Thank you, Falun Gong Master, for saving my family!” a man in Wuhan said to Ms. Xie, a Falun Gong practitioner, who had called his family earlier to offer help during the coronavirus epidemic. Ms. Xie, a New York resident, started practicing Falun Gong in 2008, nine years after the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started persecuting Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa. She soon called her friends and relatives in China to tell them that Falun Gong was nothing like what was being depicted by the CCP’s hate propaganda. One of her friends, Ms. Hu, who lives in Wuhan, quit the CCP without any hesitation. When the two friends reconnected in 2020 amid the coronavirus epidemic, Ms. Hu's husband also quit the CCP and recovered from the coronavirus. Below is the story told by Ms. Hu. “I Regret I Didn’t Quit the CCP Earlier!” I called my friend Ms. Hu in Wuhan around 2008. She was very happy to hear from me. I told her about the CCP’s persecution of Falun Gong. “Please help me quit the Communist Youth League, using my real name, so I will no longer have anything to do with the CCP,” she said to me joyfully. “I know you are kind to me. I trust my best friend!” I felt very happy for her. I also talked to her husband and asked if he would like to quit the CCP. He said he didn’t like the CCP and was disgusted by it, but he didn’t want to quit. When I heard the news about the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan earlier this year, I immediately called my friend to see if they were alright. My friend wept on the other end of the line, “My husband is infected with the horrible virus. There are so many patients, and we cannot get him a hospital bed. He has to quarantine at home. His condition is getting worse…” “Calm down and listen to me,” I said to her, “It's my fault that I didn't explain to your husband clearly enough about the importance of quitting the CCP back in 2008. If I had helped him quit the CCP then, he probably would not have been in such a situation today. May I speak with him?” When her husband got on the phone, I explained to him in detail why people need to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. I also explained the ancient view of karmic connections between mankind’s wrongdoing and plagues, as well as stories of people recovering from the infection after breaking with the CCP. He said, “Thank you! I really regret that I didn't listen to you earlier. Could you please help me quit the CCP now with my real name? Do I still have time to do this? I feel deep regret…” He spoke with a weak, but resolute, voice. He then broke down and cried. I promised that I would help him quit the CCP. His 14-year-old daughter also asked me to help her quit the Young Pioneers using her real name.

  • Stop the hate on MacDonald. Triple teamed and nobody was really open and standing around. The Stanford defense was smothering and blocked her view, wasn't the center on her also? Hitting 3 big free throws in the biggest game of her life with one minute left? This girl was amazing.

  • All those comments about Aari not passing the ball... Come on guys, please rewatch the play. a) Cameron Brink was 100 % ready to intercept a pass attempt to Babtiste. b) None of McDonald's teammates cut or move to get the ball. They are standing there watching. c) Why are they so passive? Because Aari was supposed to take the shot and maybe they are used to Aari making those shots. If they could go back in time and come up with another plan they'd still want the ball in Aaris hands. I guess Aari is heartbroken after the loss. But there is no final, semi final, elite eight or sweet sixteen for Arizona without Aari McDonald. So I really hope she is proud of herself. And I hope she knows better than to read stupid comments by some expert couch potatoes ;)

This game was the limpidity of '....the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat...'......Tucson will still welcome you home with hugging arms wide open! Congrats to you also Stanford gals....I hope that your stay in the Alamo City was also a fun time! All you ladies rock!!!

  • I was disappointed when Aari MacDonald and her Arizona teammates took out my team in the semis, but was heartbroken for her when her all out effort came up short against Stanford. Though I loved watching the amazing Outstanding Player Haley Jones, I think the Outstanding Player for the Tournament has to be the overachieving MacDonald. But Congratulations to all the women who make Women’s Athletics the thing to watch for me.

  • She panicked big time on that last possession. She opened up her defender completely on the first crossover and had an opportunity to take a shot, drive to the hole or draw in the help and kick out to the right corner. Instead she crossed over again into the double team, then crossed over again and had another chance to get a good shot off instead she dribbled into the help, didn't make the correct pass (anybody worth their basketball shoes could've made that bounce pass to the corner) and chucked the worse possible shot in that scenario. Too bad cuz she was amazing but close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades
