Lady Vols forfeit 23-point lead, fall to No. 5 Irish

Lady Vols forfeit 23-point lead, fall to No. 5 Irish

The Notre Dame women's team's biggest comeback win was also a bounce back from a recent humiliation by a top-10 opponent. The previous biggest deficit that the Irish had overcome in a victory was an 18-point hole against Duke in the Junkaroo Jam on November 26, 2011. But eight turnovers by the Lady Vols allowed the Irish to cut the lead to 54-46 before a pair of 3-pointers by Davis and Westbrook gave Tennessee a 60-50 lead after three quarters.

Tennessee fell to Notre Dame in Thursday's game, 84 to 70. Notre Dame shot just two free throws. Tennessee's 10-point total was the fewest it recorded in a fourth quarter this season.

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish will play the Clemson Tigers in one of the college basketball games on Saturday, start time at 4:00 PM ET, at Littlejohn Coliseum, Clemson, South Carolina.

Nebraska 72, #23 MI 52: James Palmer Jr. scored 19 points and Isaiah Roby added 14 as the host Cornhuskers (14-7, 5-3 Big Ten) handed the Wolverines (16-5, 5-3) their most lopsided loss of the season. After keeping pace for six minutes, the Irish were able to scrap their way back into the game via a 9-1 run that trimmed the deficit to 10.
