Notre Dame heads to ACC final for 4th straight year

CONWAY, S.C. (AP) - Marina Mabrey scored 26 points to help No. 3 Notre Dame beat 14th-ranked Louisville 84-73 on Saturday in the ACC Tournament semifinals.
 
The Fighting Irish (29-3) advanced to the title game for the fourth straight year. They are looking to become only the second team in conference history to win both the regular season and tournament crowns in four consecutive seasons. Duke did it from 2001-04.
 
Trailing 35-33 early in the third quarter, the Irish went on an 11-2 run to take a 44-37 advantage. Mabrey had nine of the points, converting two 3-point plays and hitting a 3-pointer.
 
Asia Durr did her best to keep the Cardinals in the game, scoring 26 points to lead Louisville (27-7), but it wasn't enough.
 
Notre Dame was up by two heading into the fourth and wouldn't relinquish the advantage.
