Notre Dame Basketball: Irish character defined once again

ACC Tournament 2018-Bracket-scores-schedule-Wednesday

For Notre Dame, Farrell was the leader, scoring 22 points, while also recording five assists and five rebounds.

Colson broke his foot in practice one game into the ACC season and the Irish went 6-9 without him. But in the month of March, inexplicable things tend to pile up in droves.

Duke freshman Marvin Bagley III was too much for Notre Dame, scoring 33 points as the fifth-ranked Blue Devils posted an 88-70 victory in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament quarterfinals Thursday night at the Barclays Center in NY.

"I don't want to hear about the best 68 (teams in the NCAA Tournament)", Brey said. I think all the veterans have played really, really well and so, I mean, we kind of knew that we would have to be patient with this group, with as numerous young kids who are playing and pitching in particular, so we'll continue to be patient. Notre Dame won its first two games in the tournament, erasing a 21-point deficit in the second half Wednesday night against Virginia Tech for the biggest comeback in school history. Bagley missed his final five shots of the half, and Allen missed two.

Injuries to Colson and senior guard Matt Farrell derailed Notre Dame in the middle of the season, and now the Irish have to hope the selection committee focuses on how good they can be when healthy. Notre Dame ranks 109th in rebounds allowed per game (33.8). "They're just playing terrific basketball".

"He's really impressive", Brey said. "[Bagley and Carter] rebound at a level above the rim that I haven't seen in college basketball". I think we fell apart, as well, on defense, and I feel like it translated over to our offensive game.

Virginia Tech scored 9 consecutive points with 7:11 left in the 1st Half, making the game 27-17 in favor of Virginia Tech.

Farrell scored 22 points for the 10th-seeded Irish (20-13), who overcame a terrible start in extending their late push to reach the NCAA Tournament. Farrell then quickly swiped the ball from Clarke's hands, and Clarke tried to grab it back.

I didn't necessarily think that we were great in the first half or the second half offensively.

But Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski didn't hesitate to start politicking for the squad his NCAA title contenders just beat by 18. We can't have a game where we don't show up.

Duke must overcome the Notre Dame mystique at Barclays. The Hokies could only hold off the Irish for so long before a fade-away, banked 3-pointer from Colson to beat the shot clock with under two minutes to go gave the Irish its first lead in 28:36 of game time, 60-59.

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

"Maybe we didn't have as much lift in our shot", Farrell said.

Despite ACC Player of the Year Marvin Bagley III missing four games with a sprained knee, the Blue Devils (25-6) won six of seven games to close the regular season. This time around, he said, it's a whole different ballgame.

"I just control the things I can control, and the only thing I've been anxious about since we played Saturday was getting my team ready to play", Boynton said after the eighth-seeded Cowboys' 71-60 victory over No. 9 seed Oklahoma in the opening round Wednesday night.

"So we really have to lock in and just come together and just try to figure everything out that we need to figure out and just continue to get wins".
