Hard work down low from Lauren Ebo lifts Notre Dame to Sweet 16
Mississippi State found out what life was like with her in the lane. On a Sunday afternoon in which the 6-foot-4 center established a Notre Dame NCAA Tournament rebounding record (18), two blocked shots will live on most in the memories of anyone watching as Ebo helped secure a 53-48 victory and trip to the Sweet 16 in one of two Greenville, S.C., regionals. Notre Dame will meet No. 2 seed Maryland (27-6), one of five teams to beat the third-seeded Irish in their 27-5 season (74-72 on Dec. 1), on Saturday at 11:30 a.m. EDT (ESPN).
