Notre Dame women in familiar territory

NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- The Fighting Irish are looking to take what they learned last year and use it on the road.

Notre Dame made it into the Sweet 16. This upcoming game will be the Irish’s third consecutive regional semi-final.

Players say maturity and ‘know-how" will help them in the clutch.

“I think that we have gained tournament experience which is good for us going into the game,” said Skylar Diggins.

"The experience has definitely helped us a lot,” said Devereaux Peters. “We hold our composure in situations that we dealt with last year, we've been through it.”

Head coach Muffet McGraw is a finalist for the WBCA Division 1 Coach of the Year award. She won it back in 2001 when the Fighting Irish won their first NCAA national championship.

Earlier this week she was selected as a finalist for the Region 1 coach of the year.

McGraw has lead Notre Dame to a 32-3 overall record this season.
