          Notre Dame Announces 2014-15 Women's Basketball Schedule - UND.COM - University of Notre Dame Official Athletic Site

          ...

          The 2014-15 Notre Dame women's basketball schedule could be one of the most challenging in the program's 38 seasons, as the Fighting Irish play half their regular season games (15) against 14 teams that advanced to last year's NCAA Championship, including return encounters with both of their opponents at the 2014 NCAA Women's Final Four (defending national champion Connecticut and Maryland, which departed the ACC this summer for its new home in the Big Ten Conference).

          What's more, Notre Dame will play 12 games against teams that were ranked or receiving votes in the final Associated Press and/or Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA)/USA Today polls last year, highlighted by six games against teams ranked in the top 10 of one or both major national polls at season's end.

          ...

          While the matchups with Connecticut and Maryland certainly draw one's eye, there will be no shortage of entertaining games on this year's Notre Dame schedule, both home and away. The Fighting Irish will welcome reigning Southeastern Conference tournament champion Tennessee to town on Jan. 19, while visits from regional rival Michigan and a pair of strong mid-major programs in Chattanooga and Saint Joseph's (Pa.) and a challenging four-game stretch in the Hall of Fame Women's Challenge tournament, will sharpen Notre Dame's mettle during the non-conference slate.

          In ACC play, the Fighting Irish once again will tackle a 16-game schedule that home-and-home series with two "rival partners" -- Boston College and Georgia Tech. Notre Dame played BC twice last year, while the Yellow Jackets replace Duke as the second repeat opponent on the Fighting Irish schedule. Notre Dame will face the remaining 12 ACC schools once next season, playing host to conference newcomer Louisville as well as fellow NCAA tournament participants Duke and Florida State, while making the program's first-ever trips to North Carolina and Clemson.

          Notre Dame also continues to be one of the top draws on television, whether through commercial means or through the growing Internet live-streaming market. That will continue to be the case in 2014-15, as the Fighting Irish make a minimum of 23 TV appearances, including eight games on the ESPN family of networks and four others on the ACC-Regional Sports Networks (RSN) package.

          ESPN will televise Notre Dame's Dec. 6 game against Connecticut in the 13th annual Jimmy V Women's Classic at Purcell Pavilion, while the Fighting Irish also will play three home games on the ESPN2 "Big Monday" package -- Tennessee (Jan. 19), Duke (Feb. 16) and Louisville (Feb. 23). The Fighting Irish have won all eight "Big Monday" games they have played in the past three seasons, winning three times over Tennessee, and twice each against Connecticut and Louisville. Four additional Notre Dame games (home vs. Georgia Tech and Virginia, away at Virginia Tech and North Carolina State) will air on ESPN3, and other ESPN3 broadcasts could be added at a later date.

          Meanwhile, the Fighting Irish will be a fixture on the ACC-RSN slate this season, playing three road games on the conference package (Syracuse, North Carolina and Georgia Tech) as well as one home game (Wake Forest). The ACC-RSN reaches in excess of 51.4 million homes and includes Fox Sports South, Fox Sports Carolinas, Fox Sports Florida, Sun Sports, Fox Sports Indiana, Fox Sports Midwest, Comcast Sports Net Mid-Atlantic, New England Sports Network (NESN), the YES Network, the Madison Square Garden Network (MSG) in New York and Root Sports in Pennsylvania (with additional coverage areas pending). All ACC games produced as part of the RSN package will be available via WatchESPN, but are subject to regional blackout.

          In addition, Notre Dame will stream all of its home games NOT chosen for commercial broadcast live and free of charge through the official Fighting Irish multimedia platform, WatchND (watchnd.tv).

                  Just like Alabama in football, the multiple defeating of UConn is what this sport desperately needs to level the recruiting playing field. The idea of always taking the court, or field, with essentially every athlete that you wanted is BAD for any team sport at any level. ...

                  plus, Auriemma is a complete ass, just slightly worse than Saban, who proved his Moral Mettle to me by his recruiting mailing featuring the NFL signing bonus checks of his 2012 "graduates".

                  I'd LOVE to see UConn not make the final four this year, just like I'd love Alabama not to make the playoffs. Unfortunately my desires in these matters are almost never granted. The Lord tells me that such matters are not important enough to address His attention to.

                  Still.....

                              Hard to think of South Carolina in the same group with ND, Uconn, UT, Baylor and Stanford.

                                  Halftime ND 57 Quinnipiac 30

                                  Turner leads all scorers with 16, 6-7 from the floor, 4-5 from the line.

                                  Loyd with 13, 4-5, 3-4.

                                  Irish have 16 assists for 22 buckets similar to last year's attack. In earlier games this season ND's didn't seem to be sharing the ball like last year's team.

                                  ND has 25 Rebs with Allen grabbing 5.

                                  At the half both teams had 22 fouls and more TOs.

                                                                                      She has 19 pts but can't carry this team on her back. She needs at least one teammate to hit some buckets be they treys or layups.

                                                                                              "I thought Jewell was the best player on the court," Notre Dame coach Muffet McGraw said. "We didn't give her any help at all."

                                                                                              Loyd scored 15 points in the first 10 minutes as Notre Dame (8-1) jumped out to a 28-18 advantage much to the delight of the sellout crowd. Then UConn took over, scoring 16 straight during a 22-4 run to close the half.

                                                                                              "We looked like a deer in headlights. We made some shots early and when things are going good, a young team is going to kind of roll along," McGraw said. "When things go bad, Jewell was the only one who wanted the ball. That was a problem."

                                                                                              The loss also snapped a 66-game regular-season winning streak for the Irish dating back to the Baylor game.
