Bruin Bites: Women's Hoops Destroyed by Notre Dame, Women's Soccer Celebrates #110

It's Tuesday morning and it's a slow day around the wider Bruin Nation, with our football team on hiatus until the Sun Bowl on New Year's Eve and the Hoosier Loser's basketball team not back in action until Saturday against School You Never Knew Existed Prairie View A&M.
