Louisville tops Irish

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Jordan Nwora had 24 points and nine rebounds, and Louisville notched its 20th win of the season defeating Notre Dame 75-53 on Wednesday in the second round of the ACC Tournament.

Ryan McMahon added 12 points and Steven Enoch had 10 for the Cardinals (20-12), who’ll face No. 3 North Carolina for the third time this season in the quarterfinals tonight.

The Cardinals blew open a nine-point game in the second half with a 22-7 run to build a 24-point lead.

Louisville’s length clearly bothered Notre Dame as the Irish were held to 27 percent shooting from the field and 11 percent from 3-point range.
