All caps tweets of THIS IS MARCH have already been echoing throughout the college sports world with most of it directed at the men’s basketball conference play. Well — we’re going to mix it up over here and pay homage to the Notre Dame Women’s Basketball team and the Fighting Irish Hockey team.
The Women’s basketball team begins its quest for an ACC Tournament championship at 2:00 PM today against the NC State Wolfpack. At 7:00 PM the hockey team takes on the Michigan State Spartans to start the Big Ten Tournament, and not only hopes to win the conference, but to secure a spot in the NCAA Tournament and a chance at the Frozen Four.
There’s plenty going on today. You get a total of 10 pics because I love you. LFG!
To be fair... Denver can be a bit tricky most years.
Ruth Riley made #00 cool WAY before college football got on the bandwagon.
THE ENEMY IN FRONT OF US
The Irish have a long history of battling Sparty outside of Big Ten play.
Notre Dame vs UConn is a heated rivalry, but there’s always room to hate the Baylor Bears.
Notre Dame’s first Frozen Four championship game was in 2008, and suffered a loss to the Boston College Eagles. Sorry to be a downer...
I had another thing in mind for this one... but I couldn’t scroll past Muffet rocking the periwinkle blue blouse and heels combo (while the team is in neon green). It’s outstanding.
LOLing ABOUT A BIG TEN TITLE
It’s not really that old, but I have to throw in that one time when Notre Dame joined the Big Ten and then won the whole thing in that first year.
A GROWING LEGEND
Niele Ivey first came to Notre Dame in 1997 and and has thrived in her excellence. She won a national championship as a player in 2001, and another as an assistant in 2018. Will she add one as the head coach over the next few years? If she does... get that statue ready (assuming that the nonsense is over and they finally have Muffet’s statue up a looking good)
While losing in the 2008 National Championship game sucked — beating those bastards from Ann Arbor in the semi-finals was fun.
