Notre Dame Knocking At UConn’s Door

The Huskies can’t possibly stay at the top of the poll forever, can they? That question has been asked for more than a handful of years and they answer has always been, yes. When it comes to knocking UConn off the throne there has been one team with the potential. Notre Dame is once again lurking. This year the ACC is presenting a dual threat with the addition of Louisville to the equation.

Will the Irish or Cardinals find that magical key to unlock the door to the castle this year?

Notre Dame has only lost one game this season and it was a home court advantage win for UConn in early December, 90-81.

Louisville is on a 13 game tear and have had two close games. The first, in early November in Columbus where they fought off Ohio State in OT, 95-90. The second was a 68-64 win over South Dakota State in early December.

The two teams will face off in the ACC regular season schedule, January 11, 2018 in Louisville.
