  • Golson ready to lead Irish after missing 2013 Mar 3, 2014 4:54 PM
    The first day of spring practice was a bit surreal for Notre Dame quarterback Everett Golson. It had nothing to do with the 4 below zero temperature outside when the Fighting Irish took the field inside at 7:30 a.m. Monday. It had everything to do with that fact he was putting on his gold Notre Dame helmet and red practice jersey for the first time since being suspended from school last May for academic impropriety.

     
  • No. 14 North Carolina holds off Notre Dame Mar 4, 2014 1:03 AM

Justin Anderson helped fuel the run by blocking a dunk attempt by Notre Dame’s Zach Auguste, bringing a sellout crowd at John Paul Jones Arena to its feet.

    Notre Dame added depth on national signing day where it was most needed: along the defensive front seven and the offensive line. “You’re winning up front, and building that depth in the front seven and the offensive line really stands out in this class, and then having some really good players across the board for us,” coach Brian Kelly said Wednesday.

     
  • No. 1 Syracuse beats Notre Dame 61-55 Feb 3, 2014 9:01 PM
    Trevor Cooney scored a career-high 33 points, matching a school record with nine 3-pointers, and top-ranked Syracuse beat Notre Dame 61-55 on Monday night in another matchup of former Big East foes. Syracuse (22-0, 9-0 Atlantic Coast Conference), which moved to No. 1 this week after its scintillating 91-89 overtime victory over Duke on Saturday night, extended its school record for most consecutive wins to start a season. Notre Dame (12-11, 3-7) has lost seven of nine. Two days after one of the most emotional wins in Boeheim’s 38 years as head coach, Syracuse played its first game as the nation’s top team since the 2011-12 season. Two years ago, the Orange were unbeaten and ranked No. 1 when they went to South Bend, and Notre Dame upset them 67-58. It was the eighth time Notre Dame had beaten a No. 1 team and turned out to be Syracuse’s lone loss of the regular season. Cooney made sure there was no repeat, hitting five 3-pointers in the first half as the Orange gained a 13-point halftime advantage and barely held the Irish at bay in the second half. Cooney, 9 of 12 from long range, matched the record set by Gerry McNamara in the 2004 NCAA tournament and equaled by Andy Rautins in 2008 and James Southerland in 2012. Jerami Grant and C.J. Fair, who combined for 54 points against Duke, combined for just 15 as Fair struggled, shooting 2 of 13. Tyler Ennis finished with six points and eight assists. Garrick Sherman led Notre Dame with 16 points, Steve Vasturia had 13 and Pat Connaughton 11, while Eric Atkins had nine on 3-of-10 shooting. Notre Dame closed within 38-32 on a 3-pointer from Atkins with 14:19 to play, but Syracuse responded with seven straight points. Grant slammed home a dunk after his block on Sherman and Fair followed with a slam off a Grant miss. Cooney completed the run with his seventh 3-pointer, which tied his personal best. The Irish have four long-range threats in Atkins, Connaughton, Jackson and Vasturia, who had combined for 127 on the season entering the game, and Notre Dame’s long-range attack came alive in the second half after going 1 of 6 in the first 20 minutes. Two 3-pointers by Atkins, Vasturia’s three-point play and a slam dunk by Tom Knight moved the Irish back within 43-40 with 8:41 to go. Grant responded with a spinning drive through the lane and Cooney hit another 3. Grant then fed Cooney for a reverse layup and three-point play and Cooney hit his ninth 3 for a 54-44 lead with 4:14 to play. Notre Dame refused to wilt, pulling back to 54-49 on Connaughton’s three-point play at 2:52. Grant’s layup off a feed from Ennis and two free throws by Ennis boosted the lead back to eight, and the Orange made it interesting when Ennis and Fair each missed the front end of 1-and-1s in the final minute. Atkins missed a floater and Connaughton was off on a 3-point attack in the final seconds. Against the Syracuse zone, the 6-foot-11 Sherman was the focus of the Irish attack early, and he responded by hitting a pair of hooks and scoring seven of Notre Dame’s first 12 points. Syracuse attempted only four shots from behind the arc in its win over Duke, preferring to pound it inside. Not on this night, not with Cooney red-hot. He hit four straight 3-pointers in a span of just over six minutes to propel Syracuse to the lead.

  • Brogdon leads Virginia to 68-53 win over Irish Jan 28, 2014 11:02 PM

Brogdon, who scored in double figures for the eighth straight game, hit his first five shots as the Cavaliers raced to a 20-point lead in the first 15 minutes. After the Irish cut the lead to 10 points at halftime, the Cavaliers opened the second half with an 18-5 run to put the game away.
