DAYTON, Ohio — No team has ever been so happy to be 1-20.

DAYTON, Ohio — No team has ever been so happy to be 1-20.

Skylar Diggins scored 24 points and second-seeded Notre Dame made up for 28 years of beatings at the hands of Tennessee, upsetting the top-seeded Lady Vols 73-59 Monday night to earn a spot in the Final Four.

"We went into the locker room after the game and the first thing the team said was, "1 and 20! 1 and 20!" coach Muffet McGraw said with a laugh.

The Fighting Irish (30-7) came in 0-20 all-time against the Lady Vols. But the operative number on this night was 3-0 — Notre Dame's record in regional championship games. The Irish are headed to the Final Four for the first time since 2001, when they won the national championship.

"This is what you work for," said Diggins, a first-team All-Big East performer. "I said all day, this team has so much camaraderie. It's been like that all year. We just rallied around each other."

Natalie Novosel added 17 points and Becca Bruszewski — who didn't practice Sunday and was listed as questionable to even play with a knee injury — had 13 for the Fighting Irish. Brittany Mallory chipped in with 10 points.

"It's a surreal feeling, knowing that could have been my last game," said Bruszewski, who got a new knee brace earlier on Monday. "But this team just came out ready to go. This is an unreal feeling."

Notre Dame advanced to the play the winner of today's game between top-ranked Connecticut (35-1) and second-seeded Duke (32-3).

Taber Spani and Shekinna Stricklen had 13 points for the Lady Vols (34-3).

Stanford 83, Gonzaga 60

At Spokane, Wash., Nnemkadi Ogwumike dominated the inside with 23 points and 11 rebounds, sister Chiney chipped in with 18 points, and Stanford is headed back to its fourth straight Final Four.

Stanford (33-2) won its 27th straight to match the longest streak in school history and will face the Baylor-Texas A&M winner in the national semifinals on Sunday night.

Courtney Vandersloot did her best to carry Gonzaga (31-5) for a half before it wore down in the final 20 minutes.
