No. 2 Fighting Irish Host #21/18 Oklahoma State Saturday In NCAA Sweet 16
After a pair of wins in its first two NCAA Championship games 150 miles away in Toledo, Ohio, No. 2 (and top-seeded) Notre Dame is back at Purcell Pavilion where it plays host to No. 21/18 (and fifth-seeded) Oklahoma State in an NCAA Notre Dame Regional semifinal at 2:30 p.m. (ET) Saturday. The game will be televised live on ESPN and WatchESPN, while the Notre Dame Radio Network broadcast can be heard free on the official Fighting Irish athletics multimedia platform, WatchND.
Notre Dame (34-0) moved on to its fifth consecutive NCAA Sweet 16, and sixth in seven years, with an 84-67 win over Arizona State on Monday night in Toledo. The Fighting Irish used a 16-6 run midway through the second half to take control and turn back a game ASU squad.
Senior forward Natalie Achonwa logged her team-high seventh double-double of the year with game highs of 25 points and 11 rebounds, while senior guard Kayla McBride nearly had her own double-double (22 points, nine assists).
