Wednesday’s T.I.F.I. – @NDwbb Falls Short, @NDfootball’s O-Line, Lacey Holsworth & More!

Apr 9, 2014, 10:54 AM EST

It was a tough night on the hardwood for the Irish women’s basketball as they went for their second NCAA title against archrival Connecticut. The Irish fell short against the “Miami Heat-like” Connecticut Huskies. The women’s squad holds their heads high as they participated in the Final Four in each of the last four years and have played in the final game of the season in three of the last four campaigns.

In a little news on the alumni front, former Notre Dame hockey captain Erik Condra notched an assist on an “empty-netter” last night in a 4-1 victory for his Ottawa Senators.

Now, what did we miss…
