Ball State achieved a massive upset at No. 9 Notre Dame as a 17-point loser on Tuesday night, thanks to a 3-player triple by Tayler Persons with 1.7 seconds left in the game.
Here's the picture that sent the Cardinals into a frenzy in South Bend.
The big hit of the people gave him 24 points on the night and gave Ball State his fifth victory of the season, including his first in 10 attempts against Notre Dama.
It's a time to feel good for the Cardinals, who come from consecutive 21-win seasons with James Whitford. For Notre Dame, however, this is a horrific loss in whatever form it is cut. Such a bad loss could, and probably will be, a factor in the sowing of the NCAA Tournament for the Irish in March.
This victory for Ball State, however, is potentially upsetting the season. The Cardinals have not been in the Big Dance since 2000, however, they plan to be a true contender at MAC this season along with West Michigan. With a win like this a few weeks before the conference game, it could be a solid block for the rest of the season.
That was a reason to celebrate in the dressing room after the game.
