@CanesWBB Matchup vs. Notre Dame Selected by ESPN2

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The University of Miami women’s basketball team’s Jan. 8 game against Notre Dame at the Watsco Center has been picked up by ESPN2, as announced Wednesday.

Miami and Notre Dame will face off at 3 p.m., exactly two years to the day of the Hurricanes’ 78-63 win over the Fighting Irish. That still stands as Notre Dame’s lone conference loss in its three seasons in the ACC.

The Hurricanes and Fighting Irish are each 11-1 thus far in 2016-17, with Miami ranked No. 11 in both polls and Notre Dame at No. 2 in both polls.

The Hurricanes will also play a second regular season game on ESPN2 just one week after facing Notre Dame. Their Jan. 15 contest at eighth-ranked Louisville is set to be broadcast on the network at 1:30 p.m.
