Notre Dame needed a win on Saturday to keep any hopes of sneaking into the NCAA Tournament alive. Matt Farrell responded with the best game of his career and one of the all-time great shooting performances in Notre Dame basketball history. Farrell drained 10 of 12 three point attempts against Boston College in Notre Dame’s 84-67 victory.
With the win, Notre Dame improved to 16-11 on the season with three winnable games on the horizon – vs. Miami, @ Wake Forest, and vs. Pittsburgh – before closing out the season on the road versus #1 ranked Virginia.
The Irish were playing without freshman DJ Harvey who was expected to return from injury yesterday. Harvey tweaked his knee, however, and will need to be reevaluated. Harvey will now reportedly not be available for at least another week.
The win gave Notre Dame a season sweep of Boston College.
