Notre Dame scored to cut it back to ten twice, but Valis responded with a goal each time.
An atypical performance by the opposition at the free-throw line.
No. 10/20 Baylor baseball dropped a 7-1 decision to West Virginia on Friday evening at Baylor Ballpark in the Big 12 Conference opener. “When you’re digging out of a hole against a team like that, it’s just an uphill climb and it’s draining mentally and physically”.
For West Virginia, Jevon Carter will be the one leading the way. “I wasn’t expecting them to shoot as well from outside as they did”.
KeyBank Center in Buffalo (19,200) is not MSG, but the site has been friendly to the Mountaineers in the past as WVU’s first round win pushed their overall mark in games played in Buffalo to 12-4 with six wins in a row. Assists-Bucknell 13 (Brown 4), West Virginia 15 (Miles 4). He, Carter and Daxter Miles would prove to be some of the critical aspects of the contest. “I just felt like we didn’t get much respect all season”.
Jevon Carter (2) goes to the rim in the second half of WVU’s win over Notre Dame in the second round of the NCAA Tournament on Saturday, March 18, 2017.
Notre Dame had turned the ball over 10 times in trailing 42-35 at the half. The Mountaineers/Fighting Irish game is being livestreamed across a variety of platforms: NCAA.com, the NCAA March Madness Live app, and over at CBS All Access.
Beachem’s regrets run deeper. “We’ve been down big”, said Mackenzie. “We did not take care of the basketball and the other two times we did”.
Brey was asked why he stuck with the struggling Beachem instead of playing Ryan more minutes.
“We’ve got to get our heads right and play defense like we know how to”, said senior Nathan Adrian. I’m going to miss their leadership, I’m going to miss just having them around. “Part of being a warrior is losing sometimes and we’ve got to learn how to lose just as we learn how to win”.
The Mountaineers’ defense held Matt Farrell to eight points. Notre Dame leads all-time series 27-12, though they’re only 4-4 since Bob Huggins took over as West Virginia coach. Florida State (26-8) is long, uber-athletic and plays fast, while Xavier (22-13) is a supremely disciplined squad who slows games down (217th in tempo). After that, though, Notre Dame has a severe dropoff in scoring to guard Rex Pflueger, who averages 4.8 points.
“It would be a fun matchup”, Colson said of Adrian. Knowing it’s their last game, I’m going to miss those guys.
“I’ve got pretty sharp guys and high basketball I.Q. guys, so when we get through it are we looking to attack?” “So if we limit turnovers and make free throws, you got a great chance of winning”. Mike Brey stayed with him, and Colson promptly drilled a 3.
Vasturia finished his career with 1,400 points.
In the backcourt, it’ll be the point guards battling it out for the upper hand on the perimeter.
Picking the victor, he said, is a tough call, and it’s hard to disagree.
“Carter was the assassin today”. In her role, she coordinates all media efforts for the Notre Dame women’s lacrosse and cross country/track and field programs. We really have to swing them against their man to man and their zone.
