Story: On Sunday, Notre Dame had to sweat out a win against a feisty and underrated South Florida team. Monday was a little different, as the Big East regular season champions had little issue putting...
Last year on Senior Day, Louisville came out and laid an egg, losing to USF. This year they played in a game where they had a Big East Championship on the line and the Cards did not disappoint. It didn’t take any overtimes this time as the Cards downed the Irish 73-57. Peyton Siva, Gorgui Dieng, and Mike Marra will go out as winners.
