Ball State Set to Play Against Top 10 Opponent Notre Dame

Ball State Set to Play Against Top 10 Opponent Notre Dame

Coming to a Palestra near you.an upset opportunity for the ages.

Junior transfer Jessica Shepard had 19 points, Jackie Young added 13 points and graduate transfer Lili Thompson had 12 for Notre Dame (8-1). That progress looked like it could hit a snag this season when the Cardinals started 4-4, with losses to Dayton and Bucknell and blowouts against Oklahoma and Oregon. The Red and Blue gave the Explorers a hard-fought game, leading by double-digits early but ultimately falling short 66-59 in the final quarter. The Fighting Irish entered the game as almost 20-point favorites over their in-state opponent but instead dropped to 3-1 at home.

NO. 18 WEST VIRGINIA 68, NO. 15 VIRGINIA 61: Jevon Carter had 23 points and 10 rebounds, Lamont West scored 22 points, and West Virginia sent the Cavaliers to their first loss.

Senior forward Michelle Nwokedi and the rest of the Quakers are not intimidated, however.

The college football regular season may be over, but that doesn't mean we can't have some Tuesday night #MACtion for old time's sake. We need them to be good. "We know how to play in any moment". Forward/center Trey Moses is averaging 5.9 points and 5.5 rebounds as one of the team's top reserves. In fact, she played the Spartans twice last season - as a member of the Nebraska Cornhuskers. The Red and Blue have placed a heavy emphasis on defense in practice in order to play strongly against a hungry Notre Dame team.

Well, two of those things just changed on Tuesday. "Really just defense, because back to previous championships that we have won, defense has really been the key to our Penn identity". The Fighting Irish were the highest-ranked opponent the Cardinals have played since they faced No. 1 IN on November 25, 2012.

"What's last year, is all last year. To get to this point where we can beat a team like this on the road is incredible". "But it's a new team and we have a new identity".

McGraw, who played her collegiate basketball and got her collegiate coaching start as an assistant to Jim Foster at Saint Joseph's in Philadelphia, gets a chance to go home this Saturday afternoon when the Irish travel to the Palestra to play Penn.

The defending ACC champions, Notre Dame has shown its consistency on court over their first games of the season.

Two of those games, a 24-point loss against OR and a 39-point loss against Oklahoma, are the only two that head coach James Whitford said his team didn't play well.

As a team, Notre Dame has committed just 72 turnovers all year with T.J. Gibbs leading the Atlantic Coast Conference in assist-to-turnover ratio at 3.57. "I think I'm doing that".
