Notre Dame was down 16 points in the second half to Duke -- yet, the Fighting Irish came back to tie the game and send it into OT -- winning 84 - 79 to advance to tomorrow vs. North Carolina.
WOW! The win -- Notre Dame's fifth over Duke in six ACC games since the Irish joined the ACC three years ago -- puts Mike Brey now 5 - 1 vs. his mentor Coach K. No other Duke assistant has beaten Coach K --- think about that...
Is none other than Jackie Young from Princeton High School (Princeton, IN) -- a member of Notre Dame's incoming recruiting class! Erin Boley -- Jackie's future teammate at ND was one of the five finalists for this honor!
Muffet just reloads!
Jackie is the third Notre Dame women's basketball player to earn this honor -- Skylar Diggins in 2009 and Michelle Marciniak in 1991 (who transferred to Tennessee after one season).
