A heartbreaker in Kentucky.

Alanna Smith's jumper with 23 seconds proved to be the difference maker, as the Cardinal ended Notre Dame's 17-game winning streak.
Arike Ogunbowale finished with 25 points, 21 of those coming in the first half.
Marina Mabrey had 20 points for the Irish.
Notre Dame finishes the season with a record of 33-4.
