GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Nyla Harris had 14 points and nine rebounds, Olivia Cochran made key steals down the stretch and No. 24 Louisville beat Boston College 58-55 on Thursday.

Louisville (24-8), a No. 5 seed, advances to the Friday quarterfinals against 14th-ranked Notre Dame. The teams split the regular-season series, most recently a 74-58 victory for Notre Dame on March 3 to clinch the fourth seed for a double bye.

Louisville’s pressure defense forced Boston College into six turnovers in the final two minutes. The Eagles didn’t score after T’yana Todd sank a 3-pointer from the corner with 3:41 left for a 55-52 lead.

Sydney Taylor intercepted a cross-court pass and found Harris under the basket to get within 55-54 with 1:18 left. Cochran made a steal at the other end and Nina Rickards raced the other way for a layup that was short, but Harris grabbed the offensive rebound and put it back for a 56-55 lead.
