Notre Dame women's basketball is coming off an historic offensive performance this past week. A performance they hope they can carry over to this weekend.

The Irish shot over 80 percent in the first half in a 94-53 win over Western Kentucky. The third best shooting performance in a half of basketball in Fighting Irish history.

They'll need it this weekend as the Irish play in their fifth game against a ranked opponent in Marquette.

The Irish and Eagles needed overtime to decide last year's regular season matchup. And according to Coach Muffet McGraw, It could be a close one again. Hear what she has to say in the video above.
