Kavanagh has scored two overtime game-winners for the Fighting Irish, who are now ranked No. 1 after Maryland's loss to North Carolina on Saturday. The product of Chaminade High in Mineola, N.Y., and Hotchkiss School in Lakeville, Conn., was a highly coveted recruit. In seven games he has 14 goals and six assists while shooting 34 percent.
