ACC Tournament Quick Preview: Notre Dame VS Louisville

Third time in 16 days

NCAA Womens Basketball: ACC Conference Tournament Quarterfinals-NC State vs Notre Dame William Howard-USA TODAY Sports

Semifinal Time

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish Women’s Basketball team is moving onto the semifinals of the ACC Tournament on Saturday afternoon. They just defeated NC State 66-60 on Friday to keep defending their #1 seed.

Up next is a game against the Louisville Cardinals. The Irish and Cardinals will be playing each other for the third time in 16 days on Saturday afternoon. The Irish won both of the previous two games, though. The winner will play for the ACC Tournament title on Sunday afternoon.

Sonia Citron has been LIGHTING IT UP in the last couple of games, needing to step up in big ways in the midst of Olivia Miles hurting her knee 6 days ago against Louisville and with Dara Mabrey being out too. Maddy Westbeld has also been rolling with another double-double yesterday against NC State.

There has been a rivalry developing between these two teams, especially and recently fueled by Hailey Van Lith from Louisville playing incredibly well and also her comments about playing Notre Dame. This should be a good game as it has been the past two times since February 16.
