Notre Dame's Eric Atkins Redeems Self with Game-Winning Shot in Overtime
Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Notre Dame senior guard Eric Atkins helped lead the Fighting Irish to a big win in overtime against the Boston College Eagles, completely redeeming himself for what happened earlier.

With the game tied 66-66 with 0.7 seconds left in regulation, Atkins had just made a free throw and had a chance to give Notre Dame the win with the second shot. He missed the free throw and even got another chance to make a shot, but missed it as well.

Atkins didn't let that get to him. In overtime tied 73-73, Atkins ran down the clock and drained a game-winning three-pointer to move Notre Dame to 12-10 and 3-6 in the ACC.

The senior captain finished with 24 points on 9-of-17 shooting.
