Notre Dame advanced to the Maui Invitational Championship with a convincing 92-53 victory over LSU on Tuesday night. The Irish were lead by T.J. Gibbs’s career high 26 points and never were seriously challenged by LSU who looked overmatched by the #13 ranked Fighting Irish. The win pushes Notre Dame to the championship game of the Maui Invitational tomorrow where they will face #Wichita State.
Matt Farrell pitched in 17 points and 7 assists and senior All-American Bonzie Colson picked up another double-double with 12 points and 11 rebounds. The easy victory let Mike Brey exercise his bench with 12 players seeing game action last night.
Tip-off tonight for Notre Dame’s showdown with the Shockers is 10:00 PM ET and the game will be broadcast by ESPN 2.
