The Irish women’s basketball team continued its quest for a second NCAA title on Monday night against the Arizona State Sun Devils. Although the Irish didn’t play the best game of the season, they were able to stretch the lead late, en route to a double-digit victory and a sport in the NCAA Regional in South Bend, Ind.
In some alumni news, late Sunday night, former Notre Dame hockey student-athlete Kyle Palmieri netted his 12th goal of the year for the Anaheim Ducks in a 6-2 win over the Florida Panthers.
