Milwaukee native Arike Ogunbowale will be on the April 9 issue of Sports Illustrated after making the game-winning shot in the NCAA Women's National Championship

The Divine Savior Holy Angels graduate helped Notre Dame beat Mississippi State with less than three seconds left in the game. She also hit a buzzer beater in the semi-finals against undefeated Connecticut.

Divine Savior Holy Angels president Ellen Bartel told TODAY'S TMJ4 that the Milwaukee school's alumna always comes in clutch.

"Can anyone name another player who's done it back to back in semi-final and a final game - I've not heard anybody come up with somebody who's equaled that feat," Bartel said.
