Since the Trojans' eight-game winning streak over the Irish during the Pete Carroll era ended, USC and Notre Dame have traded victories. Ky Bowman scored 19 points and Mo Jeffers had 12 points and 12 rebounds for Boston College (9-21, 2-15 ACC), which has lost 13 in a row and 15 of 16, including a February 14 home game against Notre Dame in which the Eagles let a 10-point lead slip away in the second half.
This game does fill an open spot on the Commodores 2018 football schedule.
Ky Bowman scored 19 points in the effort. The Irish shot 47.1 percent and were 9-of-27 from 3-point range. He also had three steals and ranks third in that category (1.7) but the thefts have done little to assist the league's second-worst scoring defense (77.7), which has allowed an average of 85.9 points over its last eight games.
East Carolina 66, UConn 62 - Caleb White poured in a career-high 28 points in his final home game, leading the Pirates (14-16, 6-11 American) past the Huskies (14-15, 9-8) in Greenville, N.C.
Jessica Shepard had 16 points and 10 rebounds and Hannah Whitish 16 points for Nebraska (7-22).
Bridges led the way for Michigan State (18-12, 10-7 Big Ten) with 21 points. Notre Dame students, fans, and alumni are quite proud of the walk-ons for the football and basketball programs, and the crowd got extremely excited as Mazza entered the game. BU will face American in the quarterfinals of the Patriot tournament Monday.
