It is February and the Irish Women’s Basketball Team have their eyes on one thing, and that’s a championship. Coach Muffet McGraw had the team on top of its game tonight as they soared past Louisville, 68-52. Never losing the lead throughout the entire game the Irish beating the Cardinals on the most important categories, field goal percentage and free throw percentage. Skylar Diggins scored 21 points and had 7 assists, in the win against the Cardinals. These Irish Women are now 26-2 overall and 13-1 in the Big East Conference.
Skylar Diggins will need to keep up the same type of play come March especially if the women have to face the Baylor Bears during March Madness. The season will end against Big East Foe Connecticut, earlier this season the Irish won in overtime 74-67. If Notre Dame can come out with another win against Connecticut, expect the Irish to use the momentum in March to help propel them far in the tournament.
