Jerian Grant scored 24 points and No. 11
Pat Connaughton added 20 points for the third-seeded Irish (29-5), who went from trailing by nine to up by double figures with a stunning burst that seized momentum in what amounted to a road game and sent the program to its first title in any league.
Connaughton made two three-pointers during Notre Dame's go-ahead run, with the Irish getting into a fast-paced, free-flowing attack set loose by a few ill-timed turnovers by the Tar Heels (24-11).
When it was over, Notre Dame had turned a 63-54 deficit into an 80-66 lead with 2:54 left and largely silenced a home-state UNC crowd featuring plenty of blue in the Greensboro Coliseum seats.
Georges Niang scored 19 points, Abdel Nader made the go-ahead foul shots with 48 seconds to go, and No. 13 Iowa State rallied from a 17-point second-half hole to beat No. 9
It was the fifth straight game — including all three in the tournament — that the Cyclones (25-8) rallied from a double-digit deficit, prompting Niang to dub them the "Comeback Kids." Wayne Selden Jr. had a career-high 25 points for the Jayhawks (26-8).
Josh Adams hit a big three-pointer with a minute left and
The Cowboys shot five for 22 in the second half and went 8:31 without a field goal, but Adams had the biggest one with 1:02 left, the three-pointer that put Wyoming up 43-41. San Diego State missed two shots and Derek Cooke Jr. hit two free throws to put the Cowboys up four with seven seconds left. The Aztecs' Malik Pope scored with less than a second left, but Wyoming was able to inbound the ball to earn its first conference tournament championship since 1988, as a member of the WAC.
