Just when Notre Dame was looking at a potential home upset at the hands of Lipscomb, Dane Goodwin entered the chat. He called game.

Goodwin hit a huge three-pointer with 14 seconds to play to lift the Fighting Irish to a 66-65 victory over Lipscomb at Purcell Pavilion Friday night. With the win, Notre Dame not only avoided the upset, but improved to 4-0 on the season.

It was part of a huge night for Goodwin, who scored a game-high 24 points on 9-of-13 shooting — including 6-of-8 from three-point territory — to lead the Fighting Irish to the victory.

It was yet another close, home victory for Notre Dame, which also held on to defeat Radford 79-76 in the season opener Nov. 10. The Fighting Irish now turn their attention to the Gotham Classic next week, which starts with a game against Bowling Green Nov. 22 in South Bend.

Notre Dame is trying to build off last season’s NCAA Tournament appearance, which started with a thrilling First Four victory over Rutgers and ended in the Round of 32 against Texas Tech. The Fighting Irish lost some key pieces from that team, including Paul Atkinson and Blake Wesley, but Mike Brey hit the recruiting trail to keep things rolling.

Notre Dame brought in the No. 20 recruiting class in the nation, according to the On3 Consensus Team Recruiting Ranking, headlined by five-star guard J.J. Starling. Starling, who starred La Lumiere star and was a McDonald’s All-American last year, came in as the No. 18-ranked recruit in the nation and the No. 1 player from the state of Indiana from the class of 2022, according to the On3 Consensus, a complete and equally weighted industry-generated average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies.
