University of Notre Dame

Notre Dame Men’s Basketball season came to an end on Wednesday after they lost in the second round of the ACC Tournament to Wake Forest with a final score of 72-59.

“Credit to Wake Forest. Just an old veteran team that was trying to get into the NCAA Tournament, and that's what they looked like. That's how they played. I thought they started the game with a little more juice than we did and got to a quick 8-0 run, and we just played from behind the whole game,” said Notre Dame Head Coach Micah Shrewsberry.

The Fighting Irish were the 12th seeded.

Only Markus Burton and Tae Davis scored in the second half, for a combined 25 points.

The team overall was five for 25 from the field during that second half, missing all six of their three-point attempts.

The team started three freshmen and two sophomores for most of the season, leading to a 13-20 record.

The Fighting Irish won six of its last 10 games, including an ACC Tournament victory.
