Notre Dame Women's Basketball: Irish to Meet Blue Devils in ACC Championship


Notre Dame Women’s Basketball

Its very difficult to beat a team three times in a season. Last year, the Irish beat Connecticut twice in the regular before losing to the Huskies in the Final Four. Can they avoid a similar fate in this year’s ACC tournament?

An undefeated Notre Dame faces off against 27-5 Duke squad in the ACC Championship. Notre Dame crushed NC State, 83-48. The Blue Devils defeated rival North Carolina, 66-61.

The Blue Devils are lead by Tricia Liston. She averages 17.8 points per contest.

The Irish defeated the Blue Devils twice in the regular season. At Cameron Indoor, Notre Dame beat Duke, 88-67. In South Bend, the Irish won, 81-70.

Regardless, the Irish will be a #1 seed in the women’s NCAA tournament. In fact, they may still be the #1 overall seed. The Irish are currently ranked #1 in RPI.

The game tips off at 7 pm on ESPN.
