Irish Win Seventh Straight Over Louisville

With a loss, they would probably fall into a three-way tie for fourth, and then tiebreakers would come into play for the No. 4 seed.

Now, the fate of the ACC standings comes down to Duke vs North Carolina and Miami vs Florida State. The game, like all Notre Dame home games, will be televised by NBC. With a handful of scenarios still in play, the Irish may have a shot at the No. 2 seed still in sight.

"I don't want anybody talking about a double bye", Irish coach Mike Brey says.

"This is a team that can accomplish anything", Pitino said after beating Notre Dame, "beacause of its attitude". The Blue Devils won four in a row from 2001-04. "We're a very confident team". "We didn't stick to doing what we were doing to get the lead". FSU beat Notre Dame in Orlando for a regular season game in 1994 and the Champs Sports Bowl to conclude the 2011 season.

ABOUT NOTRE DAME (23-7, 12-5 ACC): Bonzie Colson (team-high 16.9 points, league-best 10.6 rebounds) posted his conference-leading 18th double-double of the season Wednesday with 18 points and 11 boards; the 6-5 junior forward is averaging 21.8 points on 66.3-percent shooting over the last six contests. Louisville won the first five games in the series that advanced to overtime, but the Irish have claimed wins in three of the four most recent overtime games (Feb. 9, 2011, January 7, 2012 and February 9, 2013). Louisville opened with an early 1-0 lead, but the Irish responded and eventually built a 3-2 lead over the Cardinals, courtesy of goals from seniors Cortney Fortunato and Grace Muller and freshman Savannah Buchanan. "You've got to be able to stop their penetration because they penetrate and kick it out for three and make them". Tonight, we weren't efficient enough offensively - what'd we score, 64? Virginia rallied again to tie the game at 30 on Mason's three-point play. Snider then hit a 3 pointer that made it 58-51 Cards with 5 minutes left and they finally had some separation.

"They've got so many good players, it's hard to know where to start", McGraw said.

The top-seeded Irish will face third-seeded Duke, a 57-52 victor over Miami, on March 5 for the ACC crown. State's last offensive possession didn't produce a basket and the Cards escaped with a win.

"I told our guys, 'You know what?"
