Believe it or not, smoking and grilling season will be here before you know it and that means you’re gonna need some sauce. So why not Red State Barbecue Sauce. They have six different versions to choose from. Memphis Sweet, South Carolina Mustard, Texas Spicy, Alabama Show Horse, North Carolina Spicy Vinegar, and the one and only Kentucky Small Batch. Get it at either Red State location in Lexington or Cynthiana, or online at http://shop.redstatebbq.com/. There you’ll also find Red State Beef Jerky, apparel, and more. That’s Red State Barbecue Sauce at http://shop.redstatebbq.com/.
On Easter Sunday, God smiled on Notre Dame.
Trailing by 13 at half, the Fighting Irish climbed back to tie Mississippi State in the fourth quarter of the Women’s National Championship Game. Notre Dame’s run did not last. Down five with a minute to go, all hope was seemingly lost. Not so fast.
The Fighting Irish finished the game on an 8-0 run, completed by Arike Ogunbowale’s unbelievable game-winning prayer from the corner.

Say what you will about the officials, it’s one of the most incredible shots in any NCAA Tournament ever, AND it was not Ogunbowale’s first. She did it against UConn too.
What an exciting ending in Columbus last night! ND’s G A. Ogunbowale scored the game-winning jumper from the corner with a second left in the game to upset UConn 91-89 in OT and ended their undefeated season. #LuckOfTheIrish ?? pic.twitter.com/h0xiBeVoes

Nova vs. Michigan
The men’s National Championship is set to tip-off tonight at 9:20 on TBS. Villanova, the one-seeded 6.5-point favorites, is playing for their second National Title in three years. Michigan has lost three consecutive title game appearances since they cut the nets in 1989.
That preview of tonight’s game will not suffice. That’s why you should listen to today’s edition of The Aaron Torres Sports Podcast, dropping this afternoon around lunchtime. Don’t miss it.
