Syracuse used a 14-3 overtime run to rally past Notre Dame, 74-63, Sunday afternoon in the Carrier Dome. The win marked head coach Quentin Hillsman‘s first victory over the Fighting Irish and head coach Muffet McGraw in his 14 years at the helm. The Orange previously beat UND, 84-79, March 3, 2002 in the second round of the Big East Tournament. Emily Engstler notched her seventh double double of the year after scoring 22 points with 15 boards, while Kiara Lewis scored 20+ points for the second consecutive game. Syracuse improved to 6-1 at home on the year and has won its last three Carrier Dome contests.
With the win, Syracuse has now won back-to-back overtime games at home for the first time since the 1988-89 season when ‘Cuse took down Virginia Tech and Penn State. The Orange topped No. 8 Florida State 90-89 in OT Thursday.
