No. 13/15 Notre Dame will put its 3-0 record and national ranking to the test when it welcomes No. 24/21 USC (2-1) to the Joyce Center Sunday for a 2 p.m. (ET) intersectional matchup. It’s the opener of a brief two-game homestand for the Irish, who will then be away from the Joyce Center for most of the month of December.
Notre Dame earned its third consecutive victory to start this season by downing Indiana, 74-61 on Wednesday in Bloomington. The Irish led dodged foul trouble throughout the game, and used a 19-6 game-ending run to battle past the pesky Hoosiers. Senior guard Megan Duffy scored a career-high 26 points, including 13 in the final eight minutes, for Notre Dame.
Notre Dame is 13th in the latest Associated Press poll and 15th in the latest ESPN/USA Today poll.
