Basketball: Winning tradition continues for Mt. Lebanon grad

Written by Joe Bendel on .

Joe Bendel profiles Mt. Lebanon graduate Madison Cable, who is now a standout basketball player at Notre Dame.

"Baylor All-American Nina Davis was on her way to what appeared to be an uncontested layup in the Elite Eight of the 2015 NCAA women's tournament.

Madison Cable of Notre Dame had other ideas.

The Mt. Lebanon High School graduate went into Lebron James mode. She feverishly raced downcourt, launched skyward and swatted the attempt out of bounds.

It was a game-changer. Notre Dame would preserve its six-point lead with 5:40 remaining and advance to the Final Four. Davis had 24 points prior to the block. She scored once after."
