Big East on line when Irish, Huskies meet


Beating Connecticut is no longer a rarity for Notre Dame. The Irish are getting to be old hands at this. The second-ranked Fighting Irish have beaten the third-ranked Huskies in five of their past six meetings, turning what had been a one-sided series into a legitimate rivalry — Notre Dame defeated the Huskies in the Final Four the past two seasons. Their game tonight ( 4 p.m., ESPN2) will decide whether the Fighting Irish (27-1, 15-0) win the Big East title outright for a second straight season or share the title with the Huskies (27-2, 14-1), who would claim the top seed in the league tournament on a tiebreaker. – Associated Press
