The Arizona Wildcats fell to Stanford in the National Championship, 54-53. While Twitter was relatively quiet during the first half of the biggest women’s basketball game of the year, the birds awoke to tweet during halftime.  

Going into halftime it looked like it would take a miracle and a whole lot of Aari McDonald to come up with a win. Stanford headed to the locker room up 31-24. 

The halftime MVP was Arizona head coach Adia Barnes, who was simultaneously coaching and being a mother. 

For the entire 40 minutes, all eyes were on Aari McDonald, whether you were rooting for Stanford or Arizona. 

The Wildcats came back hungry for a win and made a run for it. 

As the game was coming to a close, the Wildcats run looked promising making it a one-point game with under one minute left. 

Yes JJ, we know. To be fair, Patrick Mahomes and Kevin Pillar can’t believe it either. 

With just seconds left in the game, the Wildcats put their faith in the reliable Aari McDonald. 

The Stanford Cardinals win their first National Championship in 29 years. 

The Wildcats still celebrate an incredible 2020-2021 season.
