WHO'S HOTArike Ogunbowale has produced three straight games of 20- plus points and is once again vying for the opportunity to tie her career best stretch of four straight, already set once this season. Notre Dame was a tough team to defeat in South Bend this year. Last season, the 6-foot floor general started in all 36 of his appearances and registered 14.1 points, 5.4 assists, two rebounds and 1.4 steals through 34.4 minutes a night while making 44.8 percent of his shots, 42 percent of his triples and 79.4 percent of his foul shots. Pflueger was held scoreless after tallying in double digits in eight of the previous 10 games. She is 17-of-21 (.810) in four ACC games, which leads the league. Mooney led the Irish with eight points, while Geben contributed six points and seven rebounds. She has scored in double figures in five of her last nine games, including her last two. Unfortunately, though, they let things get out of hand in the last five minutes of the half. They got out to a 15-1 lead in the first quarter and led 26-1 midway through the second quarter at NC State. At Wake Forest, Notre Dame shot at least 80.0 percent in both the first and third quarters, finishing at 55.7 percent for the game.

Next up for the Fighting Irish is a home game against 20th ranked North Carolina on Saturday night.

Ogunbowale ranks second on the team with 23 made 3-pointers, shooting 33 percent from deep, while Shepard (8.1) and Young (7.3) are their leading rebounders.

Notre Dame ranks second in the ACC with 84.4 points per game and they are giving up 68.2 points, which ranks 14th. If not for an end of season collapse against two quality opponents on the road, Notre Dame would have been in great position.
