This season will go down in history -- the first year in the Atlantic Coast Conference and the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame go 29 - 0 !!!
That's 52 consecutive regular season wins for Muffet's gang!
This was also the 9th win this season against a ranked opponent as North Carolina State came into the game ranked #13. Notre Dame disposed of them early in the second half, taking an eight point halftime lead and stretching it to 30, before emptying the bench and winning 84 - 60.
Notre Dame outscored their opponents by 527 points on the season -- an average margin of victory of 18.17 points per game. DOMINATION!

Brianna Turner (with ball in photo above) finished her high school basketball career last night -- with a "double-double" (17 points and 17 rebounds), a STATE CHAMPIONSHIP, a FINALS MVP (that's Brianna holding her award in the photo above), and a win over MaxPreps #1 ranked team in women's high school basketball -- who was on a 105 game winning streak...
Turner, considered by many the #1 incoming women's college basketball recruit, will be wearing a Notre Dame jersey this fall!
