Notre Dame wins historic 5-overtime game


The Notre Dame men's basketball team is savoring it's historical 5-overtime upset win over 11th ranked Louisville.  It was the sixth time in the last eight meetings these two teams went to overtime.

Mike Brey and Rick Pitino exchanged pleasantries prior to tip-off.  Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o was on hand for what would be an epic battle on the hardwood.          

Late in the 2nd half, with Louisville up 7, Jerian Grant drove to the rim for 2 and he drew contact.  He would convert the freebie to send this one to overtime tied at 60.

In the extra frame, tied at 68 with seconds left, Russ Smith launched a deep three, but to no avail.  Pitino was clearly not thrilled with Smith's shot selection as the game heads to double overtime.

With less than 20 seconds left in double OT, Notre Dame was down 3 until Cameron Biedscheid nailed a three.  That left the game tied at 75.

Louisville had their own chance to win shortly after.  Smith missed the layin and Behanan's put back was no good, leading to a third overtime.

Notre Dame was down one with forty seconds left in triple OT.  Garrick Sherman drove in the paint and gets the shot to fall, Behanan however would hit a free throw to tie the game at 83 and send it to a fourth extra frame.

In quadruple overtime, Fighting Irish was down 2 when Eric Atkins missed the shot but Zach Auguste grabbed the board and put up a floater.  It couldn't fall in until Sherman put it back for a one-hander.  That meant a fifth OT with the game tied at 93.

In the 5th OT with the game tied at 100, Atkins split the defense and drove in for 2.  Last shot for Louisville, down 3, Smith fired up a three, but it falls short.  Notre Dame wins a thriller in quintuple overtime by a final of 104-101.
