09 March 2018

Defensively, Notre Dame basketball yields 68.1 points per game against the opposing teams.

As a result, the fifth-ranked Fighting Irish have put themselves in position for another top seed in the women's tournament even after their loss to third-ranked Louisville in the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament championship game.

It was quite the furious pace in the opening minutes with their not being a timeout on the court until 12:43 left in the half.

Grayson Allen reacts after making a three-point play in the first half against Notre Dame at the ACC tournament.

Bagley was supported by senior guard Grayson Allen, the only non-freshman in the Blue Devils' starting lineup. At this point, I still think that the Irish are on the outside looking in.

Matt Farrell, however, saw it as a spark for his team. It marked the fourth straight year the Irish and Blue Devils did battle in the ACC Championship.

However, the Browns may prefer to take a running back first, and the quarterback later, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media. His 5.85-second 40-yard dash was the fifth-slowest at the combine since 2003, and the four players behind him went undrafted.

Allen is the only senior on the Duke roster. After a couple free throws by Notre Dame's T.J. Gibbs Jr., Marcus Carr hit a 3 to draw the 15th-seeded Panthers within 63-61. A couple of three-pointers kept the Hokies right in it. The Hokies then scored 19 of the next 23 points to take its first double digit lead of the night at 27-17 with seven minutes left in the first frame. Ball security should be an advantage for the Fighting Irish. Notre Dame suffered a seven-game losing streak in the middle of the season, won just eight regular season games in the ACC and lost to the likes of Ball State and in while at full strength.

The Irish shot 17-38 (44.7%) from the floor in the half half including 3-12 (25%) behind the arc. Duke is solid in pretty much all areas.

For 20 minutes Notre Dame (20-14) was able to penetrate Duke's zone.

What does Notre Dame have to do to win?

"But they're a very good team, when their bigs are playing like they did tonight and knocking down shots, they're a Final Four team". Notre Dame, once a member of the Big East, once a program that annually played at MSG every March, hasn't played in the Garden the past four years.

Colson was 44, including a huge three to take the lead late in the game. There is still work to be done however as Joel Lunardi still has the Irish as one of the last four teams out.

Tech has already locked up an NCAA at-large bid, but Wednesday's early departure from the ACC Tournament may cause some concern come Selection Sunday.

"He does everything well-there are no holes in his game", Blue Devil head coach Ramsey Smith said of Blumberg. Allen added 23 points to complement Bagley.

Duke (26-6) killed the Irish on the boards 40-29 and shot 67.7 percent from the field in the second half. Colson attacked at all opportunities, and finished with 18 points.

The Blue Devils went back to Bagley after the break and he got the first three Duke hoops in the second half (that gave him 16 points and 10 rebounds).
