Notre Dame Women's Basketball | Nov. 24, 2013 | Notre Dame Athletics
Penn coach Mike McLaughlin jumped at the chance last spring to bring a top team into the Palestra to face his squad.
With Notre Dame looking to get a game in coach Muffet McGraw's hometown, McLaughlin saw an opportunity to help his program grow. Despite a 76-54 loss to the fifth-ranked Irish on Saturday, McLaughlin was happy with his decision.
"To bring in a top five team in the Palestra with all the history, for Penn basketball this was awesome for us," McLaughlin said. "I think it was awesome for our program to get a team like that in our facility. Hopefully we've done enough today to get some people to come back."
