Before a sold-out crowd of 3,421 at Quinnipiac's TD Bank Sports Center, #2 Hillhouse defeated #1 Notre Dame, 70-62, in a much-heralded matchup. With the win, Hillhouse improved to 23-1. Notre Dame suffered its first loss (22-1) of the season.
Joey Kasperzyk scored 10 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter as Hillhouse pulled away for the victory. It was the record seventh SCC tournament title for the Academics, breaking the tie with city-rival Wilbur Cross. It was Hillhouse’s first title since 2013. Christian Adams (18 points) was named the tournament MVP. Notre Dame was playing in its first final since 2000.
