Louisville Edges Notre Dame In Double Overtime

Last updated on Thursday, February 18, 2010

(LOUISVILLE, KY) - The Notre Dame Fighting Irish came within two points of winning inside Freedom Hall for the first time since 1958.

The Irish dropped a 91-89 double overtime decision to the Louisville Cardinals Wednesday night.

The Cards needed a career-high 36 points from Samardo Samuels Wednesday night to record the win.

The Irish looked like they were going to get the win in the first overtime going on a 7-0 run, but Louisville was able to come back and neither team lead by more than a single basket the rest of the game.

Senior All American Luke Harangody did not play for the second straight game.

Harangody is out with a knee injury he suffered last Thursday.

Harangody is the team's leading scorer and rebounder, but Tim Abromaitis scored career-high 29 points for the Irish.
