The Irish women’s basketball squad continued their torrid play this season at the ACC Tournament over the weekend, moving to 32-0 and cutting down the nets in Greensboro, N.C. But they weren’t the only Irish team to make waves on the national stage over the past few days. On the hard court, the women’s tennis team defeated #25 Florida State in an ACC duel while the softball squad took two of three from Georgia Tech in ACC play.
Aside from the ACC competitions at Notre Dame, the Irish hockey team won its first Hockey East Tournament game over the weekend, defeating Boston University, 3-2.
