Tara Lierman, a senior at Holt High School (MI) -- earlier this week recorded a rare "quadruple double" -- scoring 28 points, dishing out 12 assists, grabbing 11 rebounds and 10 steals... That's her in the photo above -- #10.
In a game three days later she throws in another 28 points, 8 assists and 5 steals. Tara has already committed to playing college soccer at Grand Valley State -- a huge get for the Lakers!
She's up for the Lansing State Journal's "ATHLETE OF THE WEEK." Tara's a big Notre Dame fan -- you can vote for her at the link below:

Jewell Loyd was the best women's basketball player on the PLANET tonight...
- 34 Points
- 5 Rebounds
- 4 Assists
And, Lindsay Allen and Jewell Loyd served notice that they just might be the best back court in the country.
As #6 ND beat #5 Tennessee tonight 88 - 77 in front of a national TV audience - in a game the Volunteers were looking to "dominate" the Fighting Irish. This was Notre Dame's 6th win this season over a top-25 team. A win that will help the Fighting Irish at NCAA Tournament seeding time.
It was a battle between the #4 scoring offense in the country -- Notre Dame -- vs. the #8 scoring defense in the country -- Tennessee. THE OFFENSE WON.
The Irish came into the game averaging 85.4 points a game, Tennessee came in allowing only 51.8 points a game.

The Rev. Theodore M Hesburgh, C.S.C., president emeritus of the University of Notre Dame, and the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. linking hands in solidarity during a civil rights rally at Soldier Field in Chicago in 1964. The University of Notre Dame has a long-standing commitment to diversity and social justice. We recognize that an academic community must be diverse in gender, race and ethnicity, country of origin, socio-economic group, and religion to be a community rich in perspectives, learning, and culture. The variegated texture of Notre Dame prepares graduates to live and work in a world that is global in reach and diverse in composition. So proud and glad #ND chose me to be a part of something special they told us it's a life long deal, not just 4 yrs. They taught us to think for ourselves, challenge beliefs and to love. #WeAreND #MLK
It's BIG MONDAY on ESPN2 tonight and the eyes of the women's college basketball world will be on Notre Dame, IN as the #6 Fighting Irish host #5 Tennessee in a game that will probably play a role in the "seedings" for the upcoming NCAA Tournament.
The Fighting Irish will be wearin' the GREEN tonight from Under Armour!
