A third consecutive Stanford/Notre Dame tournament dance?
Possibly, according to Five Thirty Eight, which gives Stanford a 51% chance of defeating Texas and Notre Dame a 76% chance of defeating Ohio State in Lexington on Friday (however, the odds haven't been updated since it was announced that Notre Dame senior center Brianna Turner, Notre Dame's leading scorer and rebounder, is out with a torn ACL).
