A familiar name knocks Muffet's Squad out of Big East Tourney

Laura Kurz knows all about Notre Dame.

And the sister of former Irish men's basketball captain Rob Kurz showed it Sunday afternoon, scoring 21 points to lead Villanova to a 58-47 win over Muffet's Squad in the Big East quarterfinals.

The Irish finish the regular season at 22-8. They now await their seed for the NCAA Tournament.

Notre Dame will almost certainly host the first two rounds of the Big Dance at the Joyce Center.

Ashley Barlow and Melissa Lechlitner led Notre Dame in scoring with 10 points each.

Villanova faces top ranked UConn in the Big East semifinals.
