West Virginia vs. Notre Dame - 3/18/17 College Basketball Pick, Odds, and PredictionBy Kelly Sanders Mar 18, 2017
It's a lot to take in, and if you chose to just settle on one primary game to set your television to, you wouldn't have been disappointed if it was Princeton-Notre Dame. But the Tigers managed the pace of the game and held Notre Dame well below its season average of 78 points per game. However, it became clear in the opening minutes that this game would come down to Princeton stopping the inside pressure of the Irish.
Now, I'm not arguing for Matt Ryan to play starter's minutes or anything, but I think he could give this team 15+ minutes per game and provide a spark so that the offense doesn't stagnate as it did for various stretches against Princeton.
This doesn't mean Bonzie Colson and the Irish frontcourt will be outmatched in this one, but coming into it, West Virginia has the statistical upper hand. They shot 66.7 % from the free throw line, they only made four three pointers the entire game, and they had just 10 assists as a team. As Mitch Henderson notes "We were a little impatient throughout the first half".
Notre Dame went into halftime ahead 36-30. Spencer Weisz led Princeton with 15 points. After the Irish's win, he showed off the stitched-up forehead. The Tigers would never lead in the game again.
A day ago, when Brey was asked about Farrell, he caused a bit of stir when he said he was better than Bobby Hurley had been. They face guard you, they just run and trap you there.
With Notre Dame up 59-56, he missed a 12-foot jumper with 22 seconds left.
Senior forward Pete Miller, who had four points and three rebounds on Thursday, spoke of putting the finishing touches on a senior thesis in economics that delves into the student-loan default rates at for-profit universities.
Two years later, Phelps had things working and John Antonik of the WVU athletic department reminds us that Jack Fleming used to tell the story of calling his first game in the Athletic and Convocation Center, famous as the place where Notre Dame broke John Wooden and UCLA's 88-game winning streak. Steve Vasturia also recorded a notable performance with 10 points and eight rebounds. "In a situation like that, you're trying to do everything you can to claw back. We tried to make a comparison and get back to that kind of prep".
The Tigers got a tough break at the 4:02 mark when a play that seemed like a charging foul was deemed a blocking foul. And what really got him was the free throw. ND missed two free throws in the final 15 seconds but won 60-58.

But Finn Jones can't convincingly play any side of the character, and Danny is written with no through-line for him to hold onto. We learned that they're an ancient sect who discovered a risky secret; a deadly ritual that unlocks eternal life.
Those players included Farrell, the usually clutch-shooting point guard, who hit six of nine for 16 points. It was far more of a survive-and-advance win than a resounding victory. I say we're going to put St. "We didn't play very well".
Perrantes scored 19 points in the second half as the Cavaliers (23-10) got their slow-paced offense going. "We struggle offensively at times this year, but our defense has always been solid". And then we have to change defenses on them. Staying composed is going to be a big part of our game.
"My back felt great out there, got a couple of rebounds, and I just tried to cut", Ahmad said, who is still recovering from a lower back injury suffered against Texas Tech.
"This year has been awesome for us" Cook said. "I'm sure he wore his Ivy League championship ring (from the early 1980s) today". I think that the total is set too high, and taking the recent trends into consideration, I will go with the under in this one!
However, outside of the sports bubble and the brackets is a world where people don't buy into the hype. It's a testament to the league and a testament to the teams.
The other three victories all came under the watch of Bob Davie: 21-14 on November 22, 1997; 42-28 on October 21, 2000 in Morgantown, W. Va.; and 34-24 on October 13, 2001.
Embracing the day to the fullest while in Buffalo for the NCAA Tournament, Brey sported a green shirt, making jokes about participating in a St. Patrick's Day parade. Two games, two down to the wire wins over double digit seeded teams.
And then, if you want to look at other facets of the game, it doesn't get much better. That includes each of his first three seasons after he took over a gutted team following an NCAA scandal.
