Matt Farrell looked over at former Notre Dame star LaPhonso Ellis, broadcasting courtside for ESPN, and yelled: "I told you Phonso, we ain't done!"
The biggest comeback in Fighting Irish history came just in time Wednesday night — and that was worth hollering about.
Colson banked in a go-ahead, three-point heave that barely beat the shot clock with two minutes remaining, and Notre Dame rallied from 21 down in the second half to Stun Virginia Tech 71-65 at the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament in New York.
Farrell scored 22 points for the 10th-seeded Irish (20-13), who advanced to play Thursday night in the ACC quarterfinals against fifth-ranked and second-seeded Duke, the defending tournament champion.
Boston College 91, N.C. State 87 : Jerome Robinson made a pull-up jumper with 18 seconds left to break a tie, and then forced a turnover on an inbounds play moments later, and Boston College pulled off the upset.
Bucknell 83, Colgate 54 : Stephen Brown scored 22 points and reserve Nate Sestina added 16 as Bucknell won its second straight league tournament championship in Lewisburg, Pa.
Texas 68, Iowa State 64 : Dylan Osetkowski scored 20 points and Matt Coleman knocked down a crucial jumper in the final minute.
