After beating NIU and Cal, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish Women’s Basketball team are taking on the Northwestern Wildcats on Wednesday night. The Irish are still ranked 9th in the nation after the first regular season AP Poll came out this week. The Wildcats are 1-1, having already lost to a ranked team in the Oregon Ducks.
The game tonight will be in Evanston, Illinois at Northwestern’s home arena. Marina Mabrey is on 3-pointer watch as she needs just one bucket made beyond the arc to pass her sister, Marina, for all-time career 3s made. She currently sits at 274.
