Folks, the women's basketball experts at ESPN -- four out of five of them picked Maryland over Notre Dame...
Girl, do I hope they pick UCONN over the IRISH!!!!
Tonight was one of the most dominating performances of all-time in NCAA TOURNAMENT HISTORY of a #2 seed -- as the IRISH win by 31 points over Maryland 80 - 49!
Skylar Diggins -- think she wasn't motivated by the "DOUBTERS" -- led the Irish with a TRIPLE DOUBLE; 22 pts., 10 rebounds, 11 assists and then 5 steals for good measure. DOMINANCE!
NOTRE DAME OUTSCORED THEIR TWO OPPONENTS IN THE RALEIGH REGIONAL BY A COMBINED 75 POINTS -- think about that...
DENVER -- HERE COME THE IRISH!
The Irish will play Sunday night at 6 PM ET on ESPN against a school from Storrs, CT. Should be fun!

The Notre Dame women's softball team beat the Broncos of Western Michigan University in their home opener this evening with a two-out, WALK-OFF -- THREE RUN HOME RUN by Amy Buntin!
The IRISH trailed WMU 3 - 0 going into their last at bats...
A home run, triple, walk, fielder's choice (which the runner beat out) and another HOME RUN and the IRISH score five in the bottom of the seventh and it's game over!
This was my first-ever women's college softball game. I walked in during the fifth-inning thinking they played nine innings... I have to admit I had no idea the three-run homer was a walk-off until I saw the Broncos walk off the field.
I want to give a shout-out to Tom Lux '78 -- who was kind enough to give me some inside scoop on the Irish softball program. Tom and his wife Anna are the proud parents of former Irish softball star Christine Lux '10 and junior first baseman Kathryn Lux '13.
