Ball State upsets No. 8 Notre Dame on late 3-pointer

Ball State has not produced a resume the NCAA selection committee has deemed tournament-worthy since the 1999-2000 season, but the Cardinals beat a perennial March Madness participant on Tuesday night. However, they regrouped with a commanding 71-53 win over St. Francis (Brooklyn) on Sunday afternoon to improve to 3-0 at home. But what will it take for Ball State to pull out a win in its first meeting against Notre Dame since 1976 while facing a top-25 team for the first time since December 20, 2014?

Arike Ogunbowale's sixth game of 20-plus points this season and Lili Thompson's first career double-double helped the Irish (8-1) achieve their sixth straight win over Michigan State (5-3).

Comparatively, Notre Dame relies on its starting lineup to play a majority of the game, with four out of the five averaging more than 30 minutes per contest. The Fighting Irish have connected on 41.4 percent of their 3-point attempts. Reimer, who entered the game averaging 10.2 points and 4.2 rebounds a game, scored her first two baskets early in the third quarter and finished with 4 points and 3 rebounds. ". Then I come back and I'm not really doing anything". "I thought at OR we had some stretches where we were better than we were against Oklahoma, but still, all-in-all, it wasn't a good performance for us". "Numbers don't mean anything unless we win".

Bonzie Colson led the Irish with 26 points.

Liberty Mutual Grp Inc Asset Inc holds 0.16% of its portfolio in Yum! Sucampo Pharmaceuticals, Inc is a biopharmaceutical company. Louisiana State Employees Retirement System lifted its position in shares of Sucampo Pharmaceuticals by 1.0% in the 2nd quarter.

Notre Dame did, especially in the second quarter while shooting 80 percent (8 of 10) from the field and holding the Spartans scoreless over the final 6:16 of the half. Senior guard Matt Farrell (15.9 average) and sophomore guard TJ Gibbs (14.3) join Colson as players scoring in double digits. He has made 20 3-pointers in his senior season and 113 3-pointers during his career with the Fighting Irish. But Ball State wouldn't have won without Sean Sellers (11 points, seven rebounds) attacking the offensive glass, or Trey Moses locking down the paint.

"For me, when I talk about our team, I feel like we have 10 guys that can start at any Division I school, pretty much", Moses said to the Muncie Star Press. "You want playing time, obviously, but guys are out there competing every day in practice".

Ball State's has outscored opponents 347-335 in the second half, but both Oklahoma and OR dominated in the second half, making the final 20 minutes of the game vital for Ball State on Tuesday night.

After an impressive season last year culminating in a 13-1 Ivy League record, the Quakers hope to return to conference play with that defensive prowess they exhibited on the court in years past, but they recognize that a new Penn identity is ready to be forged.
