Notre Dame remained the only unbeaten team in Big East Conference play with a 3-0 win over Pitt on Wednesday night.

The Irish got two goals from midfielder Justin Morrow and one goal from fellow sophomore Michael Thomas.

Notre Dame leads the Big East's Blue Division by four points (23-19) over Connecticut. Both teams have two conference games remaining.

"This win tonight sets us up now to try and win the league with two games
left,” said Notre Dame head coach Bobby Clark. "It’ll be interesting to see how
it plays out.”

Notre Dame, Connecticut, Providence and West Virginia are the only teams to have clinched conference tournament berths.

The top six teams in each of the Big East's two eight-team divisions advance.

A pair of headers from Patrick Hopkins gave DePaul a 2-1 victory over No. 21 Louisville that dropped the Cardinals from first place to a tie for second in the Red Division.

St. John's is first, one point ahead of Louisville and South Florida, in the Red Division thanks to the Red Storm's 1-0 win over Rutgers on Adam Himeno's goal. USF downed Cincinnati, 3-2, in overtime on freshman Bernardo Anor's sixth goal of the season.
