Men's basketball holds off the Irish on senior day

Irish junior guard Matt Farrell directs the offense during Notre Dame's 64-60 win over Georgia Tech on Sunday at Purcell Pavilion

Trailing 58-57 with 19.4 seconds left Myisha Hines-Allen hit two free throws for the Cardinals. The game will be on ESPN2. The Irish remain undefeated in ACC Tournament games since joining the league. In a game many believed would be decided by the guard play, the Cardinals ball handlers were ideal in nearly every way. 3 or 4, which would ensure the double bye; otherwise, they'd be the No. 5 seed, which would give Notre Dame a four-win path to the ACC title. Louisville opened with an early 1-0 lead, but the Irish responded and eventually built a 3-2 lead over the Cardinals, courtesy of goals from seniors Cortney Fortunato and Grace Muller and freshman Savannah Buchanan. Matt Farrell tied his career high with 22 points for the Irish and Bonzie Colson recorded his ninth double-double of the season for Notre Dame, finishing with 18 points and 14 rebounds.

Notre Dame is rolling along right now, winning six straight to get to 23-7 on the season and 12-5 in the ACC. Notre Dame has won the last three meetings between the former Big East rivals, including a 77-70 win on January 4 in South Bend that sent Louisville to its first 0-2 start in conference play since 1991-92. Louisville finished second in regular season conference ranking in 2016 before falling to Syracuse and getting the chance to meet the Irish in post season.

The only time the two teams have faced each other on the gridiron previously was in the 1981 Sugar Bowl on New Year's Day 1981, when the Bulldogs beat the Irish 17-10 to with the consensus national championship for the 1980 football season. Notre Dame is No. 23 in the RPI, No. 25 in the Sagarin Ratings and No. 26 by Ken Pomeroy through March 1. He is averaging 15.8 points per game and 4.7 rebounds. Mathiang had 12 first half points. The coach, who skipped his usual pregame preview Friday afternoon, was furious with his club's defensive effort - Wake hit 10-of-24 3-pointers - so that will obviously be the focal point against Notre Dame, especially given the Irish's marksmanship from long range.


The program's other senior, walk-on Patrick Mazza, almost brought the building down with a two-handed dunk in the closing minutes.

Senior Mangok Mathiang scored a career-high 18 points and grabbed 11 rebounds. Then Louisville closed out the half on a mammoth 14-2 run.
