BOSTON (AP) -- Matt Farrell once dreamed of playing basketball for the Eagles.
The 6-foot-1 guard had committed to Boston College as a senior point guard at Point Pleasant Beach High in New Jersey, but his plans changed when the school fired Steve Donahue as its basketball coach in 2014. Farrell instead wound up at Notre Dame.
On Saturday, he gave the Eagles a taste of what they've been missing, scoring 26 of his career-high 37 points in the opening half and making a school-record 10 3-pointers with seven assists to help Notre Dame beat Boston College 84-67.
