Where: Greensboro Coliseum (Greensboro, NC)

Live TV: ESPN

Last Meeting: Notre Dame routed Syracuse 90-62 on January 21

Preview:

Syracuse has been red-hot since they're last loss to Louisville back on January 25th. Since that loss, however, the Orange have won 11 straight games, including the revenge they got on the Cardinals last night in the ACC semi-final game.

During their streak, Alexis Peterson and Brianna Butler have been averaging 16 points apiece. The Orange will look to continue their streak against the Fighting Irish with another defensive mindset which has worked for them throughout the tournament.

Notre Dame only has one loss all year which happens to come from the number one team in the nation, UConn. The Fighting Irish are the regular season ACC champions. Defensive Player of the Year, Brianna Turner will look to continue her fierce shot-blocking inside for Notre Dame, while floor general Lindsey Allen too will look to lead her team to another title.
