  • College basketball: Notre Dame holds off Princeton

They'll get a chance to own the record by themselves on Saturday against West Virginia (27-8), an 86-80 victor over Bucknell. Although both teams can finish from the line, in dire circumstances, Notre Dame is nearly automatic from the line, and if it comes down to it, they could put this game away with a free shot.

Florida State 86, Florida Gulf Coast 80: Dwayne Bacon scored 25 points and Jonathan Isaac added 17 points and 10 rebounds to help the No. 3 seed Florida State Seminoles hold off No. 14 Florida Gulf Coast in Orlando. With a strong first pass and a group of players who work together, you tend to find open shots.

Huggins' alma mater - had missed out on post-season play in 2013 and landed an NIT bid in 2014 after five straight trips to the NCAA tournament. "That's how we were going to escape and we did escape". I just want to keep this going as long as we can. "I'll always be happy we won", Farrell said. They also know words and knowledge won't add up to much without the actions to back it up.

The 2017 NCAA Tournament is officially under way, and there wasn't much in the way of madness with the first round halfway in the books. If they do those things on Saturday we could still have meaningful basketball to watch when the football team returns to practice following spring break. "It doesn't matter how you got there".

The key to WVU's opening round victory wasn't exclusively their press, but a combination of different half-court sets and a solid performance on the offensive end.

Added Weisz: "We kind of adjusted and we asked ourselves, 'What do we want to make of this game?' We came out, clawed back, and it all started on the defensive end for us". "It's been an unbelievable four years, and we couldn't have asked for anything more".

"Gave everyone a show", Brey said. Previous year was a really good game against MI. Regardless, they'll have a chance with Brey at the helm as he's established himself as one of the better overall coaches in college basketball.

The Trump administration is significantly increasing the number of US personnel inside Syria to support the assault. Their current focus is to encircle and ultimately capture Raqqa - Islamic State's base of operations in Syria.

"The game in Tallahassee we lost, we turned it over 18 times". The other two times (a combined 22 turnovers), we did. That allows West Virginia to set up its trapping half-court defense. If you hold a team to under 30 from three, you're usually going to come out on top.

West Virginia is the No. 1 turnover-forcing team in the nation. "We're getting in front of people more instead of reaching out and fouling like we used to". And a contested trey that would have put them in front at 0:03. They had big shots, but we stayed composed. They face-guard you, they run and trap you.

The Fighting Irish (26-9) almost squandered an 11-point second half lead. "We have one of the best assist-to-turnover ratios and we do a good job of handling the ball and handling pressure". "I might have a good look early in the shot clock and I have to rise up and shoot it". And we're going to have to be disciplined with that. "So I think our thing is, when we get through it, are we looking to attack?"

Mike Brey are the Irish improved to 7-2 in the NCAA Tournament over the past three seasons.

Combined with Matt Farrell's first half performance (he was not good in the 2nd half), Pflueger's defense, and Matt Ryan's 9 minutes of solid basketball, Notre Dame was able to endure a awful overall team game and beat a solid-yet-unspectacular team, surviving and advancing (which at the end of the day, is all that matters).

Farrell, who runs the offense, recognized the advantage Colson had against the Tigers. "I think that was something that got us the win".

The second round brought more indigestion for Notre Dame fans as well when it took Notre Dame overtime to dispose of 6th seeded Butler on the way to the Sweet 16.
