The folks sitting in front of us left -- with three minutes to go in regulation time -- saying "We've had enough of this..."

Those of us that stayed -- WITNESSED HISTORY!

The first regular season game to go five overtimes in BIG EAST HISTORY -- and the first five overtime game in the 115 year history of Notre Dame basketball.

And, the IRISH WIN 104 - 101 over the 11th ranked Louisville Cardinals !

Here's some of the quick highlights:
  • Jerian Grant scores 12 straight points in 28.6 seconds at the end of regulation to put the game in overtime -- after not making a shot from the floor in the first 39 minutes of the game!
  • In OT -- coming off the bench in the second OT period, Garrick Sherman scores 17 points and grabs six rebounds
  • Four Irish players foul out -- including three starters
  • And we needed every scholarship player to finish this game out...
