Ball State Hits Game-Winning Three To Upset Notre Dame

Tayler Persons hit 3-pointer from the left wing with 1.7 seconds remaining and Ball State shocked No. 9 Notre Dame 80-77 on Tuesday night at Purcell Pavilion.

Persons' big shot gave him 24 points on the night and gave Ball State its fifth victory of the season, including its first in 10 tries against Notre Dame.

Ball State had the ball with 24 seconds left in a tie game. The Cardinals, however, came right back down the court without calling a timeout, and despite jumping awkwardly and having Rex Pflueger right in his face, Persons suddenly made himself an all-time hero in Muncie, Indiana.

Ball State (4-4) travels to South Bend for its only December road game against No. 9 Notre Dame (7-1). The 53 points allowed against St. Francis matched a season low and marked the fourth time Notre Dame has allowed fewer than 60 points this season. If I can play well and the team wins, that's going to make me happy.

In order for the Cardinals to walk away with their first-ever victory against the Fighting Irish, they will need to continue their strong shooting trend.

Conner Frankamp added 16 points, setting the school record by hitting a 3 in his 30th straight game, and the Shockers slowly dug out of a 13-point second-half hole to beat the Jackrabbits for their 23rd straight home win.

For a team which lost late leads at Dayton and Bucknell, missing out on two quality wins, this was a breakthrough. "It's college basketball, we've all seen it, it may happen", Whitford said. We could feel it.

Whitford used his usual 10-player rotation, while Brey played only six players more than seven minutes. Notre Dame was outrebounded 40-26. We've come a long way.
