Notre Dame tossed aside 76-58 by Iowa State

March 23, 2013

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Notre Dame's days in the Big East are over. Its troubles in the NCAA tournament linger.

For the third time in four years, the Fighting Irish were bounced in their first game, upended Friday night 76-58 by an impressive Iowa State team that beat Notre Dame on the inside, from the outside and every way possible.

Next year, Notre Dame begins anew as a member of the reconfigured Atlantic Coast Conference. But although they'll be in a different league, the Fighting Irish will carry a label as a team unable to advance in March.
