Maybe Notre Dame should be called the Fight-Lin Irish. No one predicted this run off success over the last month from Notre Dame – or this stunning comeback. Down 20 on the road at Villanova, the Irish buried 3 after 3 to pull off perhaps their most astounding victory yet.
Maalik Wayns scored 21 points, Dominic Cheek added 20 and Villanova defeated DePaul 87-71 Sunday, snapping a three-game losing skid for the Wildcats.
DePaul couldn’t get their second conference win of the season on Saturday against Villanova, but the Blue Demons did give the Wildcats all they could handle.
