Unbeaten Irish and No. 4-seed Terrapins both carry ACC banner into Nashville

04/06/2014

Muffet McGrawNASHVILLE – It was a banner season for Notre Dame and coach Muffet McGraw, embarking on a first season in the Atlantic Coast Conference and reaching the Final Four with a 36-0 mark heading into Sunday’s national semifinal against Maryland.

After sweeping the ACC with a perfect record, McGraw and the Irish battle Maryland in what will be their final meeting as conference foes, with Maryland leaving the league next season. Notre Dame earned an 87-83 decision over the Terps in late January, and is making its sixth Final Four appearance – just the sixth team ever to reach the NCAA Final Four in four consecutive seasons. It is the Terrapins’ fifth Final Four, counting an AIAW appearance in 1978.

Krista Blunk caught up with McGraw ahead of Sunday’s game.

When you do something for the first time in more than 20 years, you can get excited. Iowa, behind Jarrod Uthoff, already beat Michigan State on the road for the first time since 1993 (ending an 18-game losing streak) and the Hawkeyes seem to be poised for an incredible run this year.…
