Marvin Bagley: Dominates Notre Dame in ACC Tournament

  • Virginia Tech blows 21-point lead, falls to Notre Dame in ACC Tournament

"If you take out the first three conference games, we've played as well as anybody on the defensive end in the conference". Notre Dame forced the Hokies to take a bad shot and from there it was ball game.

Bonzie Colson led the way with 18 points and 9 rebounds. Point guard Matt Farrell, the team's second-leading scorer, also missed five games with his own injury during that time.

Notre Dame went with just a six-player rotation in tight games.

Beat Duke, and Notre Dame nearly certainly elbows its way into the NCAA bracket.

UCLA: An 88-77 win over Stanford in the Pac-12 Tournament sent the Bruins (21-10) into the semifinals against Arizona and put them on solid footing.

Notre Dame beat Virginia Tech on Wednesday, 71-65. How refreshing it was, then, to hear Brey all but wave the white flag afterward.

"We have emptied the tank, and we'll see what our fate is down the road", Brey said. "(If) Mike has that team together the whole year, forget it; they could be - I'm telling you, if they get in, they'll - they're going to beat people".

But Clemson wasn't going to get off easy-not on Robinson's watch.

Notre Dame had a seven-game losing streak while preseason All-American Bonzie Colson was out injured and couldn't do enough by the time he returned. A home loss to Ball State, a neutral-court loss to Indiana.

ESPN has Notre Dame listed as one of the first four teams out of the field.

And three Quadrant 3 losses. "They've only known Elite Eights and the NCAAs".

Porter Jr. rusty in return, Mizzou loses SEC tourney opener
While Porter shot a low percentage, Mizzou outscored Georgia while he was on the floor and got outscored when he was off it. A minute later, he nabbed his first rebound, and after running the length of the court, got his first points on an layup.

Our Jerry Palm updated his bracket Thursday night.

The undersized Fighting Irish had no answer for Bagley's size and athleticism in the lane.

Points in the paint were controlled by Virginia Tech, with 30 points, compared to Notre Dame's 16.

This detracts not at all from his enduring legacy at Notre Dame. The Irish also have a trio of losses against sub-100 RPI teams, one to Ball State at home, another to IN on a neutral court and a third to Georgia Tech on the road.

Notre Dame simply could not get shots to fall early on shooting just 25% in the first half. Just everything we've gone through. He's one of the most impressive guys. "I think we kept playing".

"Yeah, I think it kind of showed toughness", the senior said. "On both ends of the floor it's really staggering".

Chris Clarke was the only other Hokie to score double digits Wednesday night, scoring 12 for Virginia Tech while adding five rebounds and two assists.

With a potential NIT berth on the horizon, there's still time for additional growth, both individually and program-wide-at least as far as the fourth-year coach is concerned.

The Irish improved to 13-4 with Colson in the lineup and are hoping a good showing here at the Barclays Center, where they are now 8-1, will convince the NCAA Tournament selection committee that, with a healthy Colson, they deserve a spot in the field of 68. "We'll be honored wherever we go". In a game in which Notre Dame needed him the most, the senior leader was vital down the stretch. We've never won it.

JUSTIN AMMERMAN: I would say no. "When I have my guys back, we're a top 20 team". "To come back and pull that off?' We'd be really proud". Give Brey credit for being a realist. "Tonight was a great example of him being at his best". That will remain true even without an NCAA Tournament ticket this season.
