NCAA bubble burst for Notre Dame and Louisville

Virginia Tech blows 21-point lead, falls to Notre Dame in ACC Tournament Duke's ACC Tournament Opponent For Tomorrow Is Set
Tamara Craig | 12 March, 2018, 12:15

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

With momentum finally in hand, Bonzie Colson pounded his chest and screamed in triumph. Notre Dame was down by a 21-point margin with just over 15 minutes left in the 2nd half, however, was outstanding on the defensive end towards the end of the game and took the lead for good after a 34-12 run gave the Fighting Irish a 60-59 lead with 2:03 left in regulation.

The outcome was probably too big a beatdown, too convincing of a loss, to salvage Notre Dame's chances for the NCAA Tournament. But in the month of March, inexplicable things tend to pile up in droves.

Bagley was dominant on both ends the floor, especially in the second half when he scored 23 points and ruined any notion of the kind of comeback Notre Dame staged Wednesday night when it rallied from a 21-point deficit to beat seventh-seeded Virginia Tech, 71-65. What if we had an NIT banner you guys hung up as seniors and you'd come back and go - I know it's the NCAA - but remember that year?

What's your prediction for Notre Dame?

While Duke now sits two wins away from a potential top seed in the Big Dance, the story is dramatically different for the opponent they just disposed of.

We need more of this, college basketball.

"We definitely needed some time to figure out, get some chemistry with me being at the point and not being on the wing", Mabrey said.

Farrell finished with a game-high 22 points, including a 4-for-11 mark from beyond the arc, followed by 14 from junior guard Rex Pflueger, who hauled in a game-high nine rebounds, and 12 points from Colson.

Allen quickly got into a rhythm, sinking his first 5 3-point attempts and scoring 17 of Duke's first 34 points - some easily from National Basketball Association range. The Hokies' lead still held at 54-37 with under 11 minutes to go.

Matt Farrell, who also missed five games with an ankle injury while Colson was sidelined, scored 18 for the Irish.

Duke and Notre Dame combined to score 42 points in the game's first 7:18, all before a single TV timeout. Farrell's theatrics sent him into press row on the baseline, and Clarke was called for the technical foul. Along with Marcquise Reed, the scoring tandem cruised to the midway point of the second half with a 15-point advantage.

"Grayson's leadership has continued to get better and better", Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski said. We can't have a game where we don't show up.

Rameses threw a stiff-arm at the Leprechaun, leveling the Notre Dame mascot.

The Hokies made two three-pointers in the final minute, but they could not climb out of the hole they had dug, and the Irish won the game to advance in the tournament. Clutch free throws sealed it, capping a 50-point second half.

For 20 minutes Notre Dame (20-14) was able to penetrate Duke's zone. "But they're a very good team, when their bigs are playing like they did tonight and knocking down shots, they're a Final Four team".

Allen's Blue Devils beat Notre Dame in the quarterfinals of the ACC Tournament on Thursday and have now advanced to the semis.

The Irish freshmen were on top of their game as Howe led the way with six points on the afternoon (4 goals, 2 assists). The game got a little testy as the Irish picked up the intensity and the Hokies went cold on offense.

Fake news travels faster than truth
But, of course, Twitter won't do that. "But at the end of the day you're going to have to find a way to work with Facebook". It reached more than 20,000 people almost three times faster than other types of false news reached half that many people.
