Syracuse and Georgetown, one more heavyweight clash in Madison Square Garden.
Notre Dame announced in September it was leaving the Big East to join the ACC, with its football program remaining independent. Big East bylaws require 27 months' notice from departing members, but athletic director Jack Swarbrick indicated he would at least talk to the Big East about the possibility of leaving early.
Otto Porter scored 19 points and Georgetown held the Irish to a season-low 35 percent shooting, handing Notre Dame its third loss in four games.
After two months of playing mostly lightweight opponents and two weeks off for Christmas break, No. 21 Notre Dame is ready to begin its quest of trying to win its first Big East title before departing for the Atlantic Coast Conference.
Reserve Garrick Sherman scored 18 points to lead Notre Dame past George Washington 65-48 on Wednesday.
Morgan Wootten has received many awards in recognition of his long and successful coaching career at DeMatha High School.
The tale surrounding Otto Porter's arrival at Georgetown seems to have grown more florid with each passing day, to the point where one might believe the Hoyas magically unearthed a rebounding machine from the middle of nowhere and inserted him into the starting lineup of a Big East contender without anyone in the college basketball world knowing what hit them.
Heading into what could be Notre Dame's last season before joining the Atlantic Coast Conference, coach Mike Brey would like the Fighting Irish to take something with them as they prepare to leave the Big East: their first ever outright regular-season title.
In his first year as athletic director at Notre Dame four years ago, Jack Swarbrick visited Chapel Hill, N.C., for the first time. Walking through the University of North Carolina campus before a Tar Heels football game against the Fighting Irish, Swarbrick vividly remembers the satisfaction he felt in being warmly welcomed.
Here are the teams to embrace or avoid while trying to forecast how the field of 68 fares in the NCAA tournament.
Three more overtimes, four Big East teams standing.
Senior Night at Verizon Center provided another glimpse of Georgetown's bright future. Freshman Greg Whittington led all scorers Monday with a career-high 15 points, and freshman Otto Porter snared a team-high 10 rebounds in a 59-41 rout of Notre Dame.
Notre Dame coach Mike Brey strode into his post-game press conference Monday night at Verizon Center and immediately joked about getting the ensuing ordeal over with so he could get home.
Playing at home for the last time, seniors Jason Clark and Henry Sims combined for 25 points, 12 rebounds and six assists, and No. 11 Georgetown used its typically tough defense to beat No. 20 Notre Dame 59-41 in a key game for Big East tournament seeding.
Maybe coach Mike Brey's biggest surprise during Notre Dame's nine-game winning streak was picking up a technical foul. Unhappy with a call as the Irish were negotiating their way through a physical stretch of play against West Virginia, Brey nearly lost his seat on the bench.
"Here we go again," Brey said Thursday night after the sixth-seeded Irish held off Marquette. "When the games have been in overtime, that's when we've gotten our wins. When they've won, they've usually thumped us. I hope it's overtime. They're really good. We just played them last Saturday, and they're playing with a great rhythm, and it comes down to taking care of the ball."
"Unbelievable," Fighting Irish coach Mike Brey said. "We're trying to get our money's worth out of this thing."
