After closing out a strong 24-6 (13-3 BIG EAST) season, the #3 seed Irish began determined run, beating Louisville 63-53 in the Quarterfinals, DePaul 71-67 in the Semifinals, but finally losing a heartbreaking Final game to Connecticut, 73-64. This was their third meeting with Connecticut this season, however, they were unable to prevail in any matchup. The Irish will learn of their NCAA Tournament seed and location this coming Monday, the 14th.
