This afternoon, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish women’s basketball team played their First Round game of the NCAA Tournament. Because they are bosses, the Irish had a home game, as the first two rounds for the Irish are at Purcell Pavilion. They took on the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats in a 16/1 matchup in the Chicago region. Here is how it went down.
The Irish admittedly started off pretty slow. Not just by seeding, but by overall athletic ability, people could see this was going to be a lopsided game. The Irish had some good looks at shots, but the Purcell rims had a bit too much give today.
