Halftime: Notre Dame 44, Liberty 19

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
With a 25-point halftime lead against #16 seed Liberty, perhaps Notre Dame can start looking ahead to a game with California on Tuesday.

Led by Kayla McBride's 13 points, six Irish players have scored and head coach Muffet McGraw's team has jumped out to a 44-19 advantage at the break. Notre Dame is also controlling the game on the glass (19-14 Irish), against a Liberty squad that is ranked first in the nation in rebound differential.

The "Nowhere Else But Notre Dame" video was absent. There was no special starting lineup introduction, chicken toss or section cheering signs, and the NCAA might call this a neutral site contest.

But make no mistake about this afternoon's game. The Fighting Irish are playing in front of a great home crowd. The lime green faithful have made every Notre Dame bucket feels like a last-second game-winner.

There are still 20 minutes left in this one, but barring a monumental collapse, Notre Dame looks well on its way to a second round game against the Golden Bears.
