Notre Dame leaves for Final Four with 2 awards


The Notre Dame women's basketball players are embarking on perhaps the biggest weekend of their careers.

After practice, the Irish loaded up the team bus to make the trip to New Orleans for the Final Four.  A few fans were on hand to send them off.
 Earlier this afternoon, the team picked up two huge honors.
 Jewel Lloyd won the U-S Basketball Writers Association Freshman of the Year award and Muffet McGraw has been named the U-S-B-W-A National Coach of the Year.
 McGraw guided the Irish to a 35-1 record and to a third straight National Semi-Final appearance.
 McGraw says there is no way she won this award on her own, that is a "staff" award.
