Miami advances to first ACC championship in program history – JWS

Miami shook up in a two-day ACC tournament, beating third-seeded Notre Dame 57-54 on Saturday to advance to the first ACC Championship game in program history.

Seventh-seeded Miami postponed Fighting Irish to last possession and refused Dara Maybury to win the final three-pointer.

Kelsey Marshall led Miami with 18 points, adding five rebounds, three assists and one steal. Karla Erjavec provided 10 points and 4 rebounds, while Destiny Harden recorded 6 points and 7 rebounds.

Miami outperformed Fighting Irish 36-31, despite three Notre Dame players finishing in double digits.

“They were very composed today,” Miami coach Katie Meier told the ACC network the day after the match bounced second-seeded Louisville from the tournament in the fourth-quarter rally.

Miami will face North Carolina State University in the ACC tournament final on Sunday (12pm. ET, ESPN) after Wolfpack defeated Virginia Tech 70-55 on Saturday in the other semifinals.
