BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — Notre Dame coach Niele Ivey wasn’t going to miss a chance to see her son Jaden play in his first Sweet 16. Ivey headed down to Philadelphia from Connecticut after her team practices Friday afternoon to watch Purdue face Saint Peter’s in the men’s regional semifinal. Jaden Ivey is a sophomore for the Boilermakers and second-team AP All-America. Unfortunately for the Iveys, 15th-seed Saint Peter’s pulled off another upset, beating Purdue 67-64. Jaden Ivey had nine points and eight rebounds. Ivey said she talked to the school’s athletic director who encouraged her to go. She has a car waiting for her after the Irish’s practice to make the 2.5-hour trip. Notre Dame faces North Carolina State in the women’s Sweet 16 on Saturday morning.
