Princeton Misses Buzzer-Beater In 60-58 Loss To Notre Dame

Princeton Misses Buzzer-Beater In 60-58 Loss To Notre Dame

The tea leaves said these teams looked identical. Princeton, which went unbeaten in Ivy play this season, is a team that shoots 38 percent from distance, but went just 8-of-31 (25.8%) in this one, including 3-for-13 in the second half. "I think it's gotten to be a little bit of the tradition of the program where it's handed down to the younger guys and they're dragged along by the older guys that have been part of it". This is a big-time read awareness game.

Despite his injury, Colson was the best player on the floor. Juniors Bonzie Colson and Matt Farrell led the way with 18 and 16 points, respectively. Beachem combined to miss their first six shots.

Princeton had plenty of chances to pull off an upset to kick off the NCAA tournament.

The Bulldogs (24-8) shot 49.0 percent overall while going 20 for 30 from the free throw line, while Winthrop made just five free throws on 10 attempts. It'll be an interesting clash between two excellent offensive teams.

"I'd love to have a blood pressure monitor on myself during the game". We guard that every day in practice. Brey said. "A tough one, you escape, and maybe can get on a run". Notre Dame, the fifth seed in the West, appeared poised to advance in tame fashion, seizing an 11-point lead early in the second half. His top of the key 3 pushed the Irish up by nine before finding Bonzie Colson down the lane for a two-hand dunk.

Doing so for 40 minutes would be a monumental task, but anything against Gonzaga for 40 minutes is a monumental task. But Oklahoma has the talent to get to the Sweet 16 at least, and it's a fun team to watch on its best nights.

Another school of thought: Hightower and the 33-year-old Harris could have remained fresh throughout the season with fewer snaps. The contract also includes $19 million in guaranteed money, Hightower's agency, Sports Trust Advisors, posted on Twitter.

But not a single thing came routinely after that. Last season they crushed Fairleigh Dickinson in the First Four before losing to No. 1 seed North Carolina.

In stitches: Fighting Irish guard Rex Pflueger left the game about six minutes in with a cut to his left forehead after being elbowed by Princeton's Cook, who was driving the lane. We've put together this helpful guide to show you how to watch Notre Dame vs Princeton online, without a cable subscription. They've won a lot of games like this, getting down to the wire, having to get a stop, having to make a free throw, getting the ball inbounds with no timeouts. The Tigers missed two threes in the final 20 seconds, a wide open look by Steven Cook that would've tied the game with 19 seconds left and a long open trey by Devin Cannady that would've given the Tigers the victory with less than a second remaining. At the same moment the Tigers, the 12th-seeded underdogs of the athletic-scholarship averse Ivy League, had found a way to put the ball in the hands of their most prolific three-point shooter. And I think in this tournament, this nucleus of guys, just feel like as this thing was getting close, well, that's what we did all a year ago. But we've been in so many of them, we really believe. "I think we're 18-3 in our last 21 overtime games". They're going to play hard. We chased them off stuff. We've been in so many like that. "We're thrilled to survive", Brey said. "And it's very similar to two years ago, the Northeastern game, you know?" Rarely do we see Brey get upset at a specific player, but cameras caught him in the subsequent TV timeout expressing what he thought of Farrell's careless pass. "We're in the championship of the Buffalo Invitational".

The Irish will be back to check the tea leaves again and play Saturday for a third straight shot at an NCAA regional appearance.

A similar recipe would certainly help Notre Dame's chances in this year's tournament.
