NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Notre Dame’s Muffet McGraw, who guided the Irish to an undefeated season, has been selected as The Associated Press’ women’s college basketball coach of the year for the second straight year.

The Fighting Irish entered the NCAA tournament at 32-0 and as a No. 1 seed. McGraw has Notre Dame back in the Final Four for a fourth straight season.

The 58-year-old McGraw was presented the award Saturday after receiving 17 votes from the same 36-member national media panel that selects the weekly Top 25. The voting was done before the NCAA tournament.

McGraw became the second coach to win the award in consecutive seasons, joining Connecticut’s Geno Auriemma. West Virginia’s Mike Carey was second with eight votes. Auriemma was third and South Carolina’s Dawn Staley was fourth.
