Ball State Upsets Notre Dame

Ball State Upsets Notre Dame

The Cardinals were 17.5 point underdogs to the Irish, which makes sense; Ball State was 4-4 entering the contest, with blowout losses at Oklahoma and OR, while Notre Dame had put together an impressive early season run that included a Maui Invitational title over Wichita State.

It's undeniably the biggest win for the program since Ball State beat No. 3 UCLA and No. 4 Kansas in the Maui Invitational in 2001. The Fighting Irish entered the game as almost 20-point favorites over their in-state opponent but instead dropped to 3-1 at home.

But Persons quieted them down about 20 seconds later, shooting a dagger over the outstretched arms of 6-foot-6 Rex Pflueger with 1.7 seconds left.

ABOUT NOTRE DAME (7-1): Senior center Martinas Geben was superb in the victory against St. Francis by scoring a career-best 14 points, matching his career high of 10 rebounds and posting his first double-double.

Bonzie Colson scored a game-high 26 for the Irish. Guard Matt Farrell evened the score at 77 when he made a 3-pointer from the right wing with 24 seconds to go.

TRINE 85, KALAMAZOO 25: In Kalamazoo, Michigan, Kayla Freeman led the Thunder (8-0, 2-0 MIAA) with 13 points off the bench, Cassidy Williams added 11 and Brandi Dawson 10.

After Ball State's third straight win against IUPUI on December 2, Whitford said his team is capable of beating anyone.

Ball State led 34-29 at halftime. Penn will need to be on the lookout for Arike Ogunbowale of the Fighting Irish, as she has led the team in points in four of the last eight games.

Sarah Fryman scored 20, Casey Morton added 11 and Brooke Saylor finished with 10 for the Foresters (8-3, 2-2).

Michigan State: Coach Suzy Merchant has work to do with her squad on both ends of the floor after Notre Dame shot 64 percent in the first half (16 of 25) while holding the Spartans to 18.8 percent (6 of 32). This meeting marks the third time the Cardinals have played a Power Five opponent this year, and the Fighting Irish are the fourth top-100 team the Cardinals will face in their non-conference schedule, according to the Ken Pomeroy rankings.

"With Notre Dame you are going to be getting a top-three team in the country, who came a play or two from beating the No. 1 team in the country". The Mountaineers closed to 80-78 on Donald Carey's 3-pointer, but Carr hit two more from the line and Mt. St. Mary's missed its final shot.
