On Saturday afternoon, Notre Dame took on Syracuse in the semifinals of the ACC Tournament. The Irish defeated the Orange 91-66. Jackie Young led all scorers with 18 points and Marina Mabrey broke a three-point record in the win. The Irish will now take on Louisville in the championship of the ACC Tournament in Greensboro, NC.
For the Irish, it’s all about defense. If they can play well enough defensively, it will take a lot of pressure off the offense. Notre Dame has put up over 90 points in both games and has scored over 100 points in the paint between the two games.
