In another great match-up before the match-up, #6 Syracuse met #1 Notre Dame in a preview of this week’s 1st round Big East match-up. For the first three quarters, the game looked like a chess match between two very talented opponents. After a scoreless first quarter, the Irish would draw first blood. Going into the half, Notre Dame would hold the lead 3-1.
Coach Desko must’ve had a great with the Orangemen at half, because they came out swinging, taking a 4-3 lead just five minutes into the third quarter. The Irish would score only once more to tie the game at four, before the Orange used 6-0 fourth quarter to secure the comfortable 10-7 victory.
Notre Dame and Syracuse will see each other this Thursday once again in the first round of the Big East Tournament. Both teams will be aiming to secure the AQ bid for the Big East.
