It is said there is a first time for everything.
Clemson (22-8, 11-7) entered the game ranked eighth in RPI and already assured of its first NCAA Tournament berth in seven years. No. 11 Syracuse, another team on the NCAA bubble, faces 14th-seeded Wake Forest in the nightcap. Carsen Edwards scored 53 points in the first two games here, but just 12 against MI, shooting 4 for 16. The two teams headed into the first break tied at 21.
The fourth-seeded Nittany Lions go up against the Fighting Irish on Saturday, March 10 at 5:30 p.m.at Notre Dame's Compton Family Ice Arena. It was senior forward Kathryn Westbeld's layup with 7:49 remaining in the half that put the Irish on top - briefly. During that time, point guard Matt Farrell also missed games with an ankle injury. If those numbers sound good enough for an ACC player of the year, remember the 6-2 senior nabbed that honor in 2016.
"She was the one that really showed up big for them", said McGraw, conceding that the Irish struggled against Louisville's relentless ball pressure.
"Geben's a lot bigger than me, so his knee overpowered mine and what should have been knee to knee, he just made my knee buckle", Guy said. She knocked them both down.
Syracuse lost three of its last four regular season games, but finished on a high note with a 55-52 win over No. 18 Clemson.
The Wolverines jumped eight spots after beating Michigan State 75-64 on Saturday and Purdue 75-66 on Sunday to win a second straight Big Ten title. Four weeks in, they were 6-0 and looked great. Everything is there. I'm wrestling well, and that's really all the matters. They shot 19 of 53 (35.8 percent).
"Confidence is a huge part of success believing in yourself", he said. "I thought the offensive rebound kick out was probably the dagger and the game-winning shot". I think their defense will hold up this week against opponents it is familiar with. Right now, we have been able to stuff the stuff.
A three-point play by Sam Fuehring, off a splendid pass from Myisha Hines-Allen, followed by two free throws by Arica Carter, followed four free throws by Asia Durr sealed the win for the Cardinals.
A milestone win for a group of players Coach Jeff Walz has often described as a wonderful group of young women, people who enjoy working and playing together, and pulling for each other to succeed. He got emotional. Yeah, I know how good he is. Louisville is now a clear bubble team going into Championship Week.
"The Wolverines would go on to beat Nebraska, Michigan State and Purdue in successive days, winning their second straight league tournament as one of college basketball's hottest teams". Louisville defeated Notre Dame by 33 during the regular season two months ago at the KFC Yum! "He is back and with him we have a chance, but we need to get going in Brooklyn".
