Ball State upsets No. 9 Notre Dame 80-77
(SOUTH BEND) - Ball State had never come close against Notre Dame, let alone beat the Fighting Irish. Both changed Tuesday night on Tayler Persons' left-wing 3-pointer with 1.7 seconds remaining as the Cardinals shocked the ninth-ranked Fighting Irish 80-77 at Purcell Pavilion. Persons scored 24 points, Tahjai Teague added 13 and Sean Sellers had 11 as Ball State knocked off a nationally ranked opponent for the first time since downing No. 4 UCLA 91-73 more than 16 years ago. Notre Dame (7-2) lost a nonconference home game for the first time since falling to North Dakota State four years ago. The Cardinals (5-4) led by a high of 67-58 with 6:45 to go, but the Irish charged all the way back to a 77-77 tie on Matt Farrell's 3 pointer with 20 seconds to go. Persons then drained his 3-pointer off the dribble for the victory. Bonzie Colson led all players with 26 points for the Irish. Farrell added 14 points and eight assists with no turnovers, while Martinas Geben finished with 12 points. The Cardinals consistently gave themselves extra opportunities with their crashing of the offensive glass. Ball State gathered 13 offensive rebounds and turned those into 14 second-chance points, while Notre Dame had just four offensive boards, good for three second-chance points.
