The earth didn’t move; Notre Dame won. The second-ranked and first-seeded Fighting Irish defeated a plucky and at times inspired Iowa women’s basketball team 74-57 in an NCAA second-round game Tuesday at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. It was not necessarily vintage Notre Dame 2013, but it was a pretty impressive show. What’s impressive about the Irish is [...]
