ND had a very high drama low entertainment win against Princeton. They survived and this next game will play very differently.
WVU was not pushed nearly as hard in their win win over Bucknell, but they were also a favourite that did not cover in the round of 64.
Notre Dame Fighting Irish
When ND faced Princeton we knew not to expect fireworks but I thought that eventually they would pull away from the Tigers. It didn’t happen.
Still I like the Irish’s prospects overall. They have talent but they also have a number of experienced players who have had a lot of success in the postseason.
Bonzie Colson is one of my favourite players in the college game. Love his weird frame and game and how productive he is. He led all scorers with 18.
V.J. Beachem was a no show against Princeton. If he is again the Irish will be going home. They need him to handle and shoot.
West Virginia Mountaineers
We all know how WVU likes to press and wear opponents down. They didn’t quite do so to Bucknell in the opener. More like outlasted.
The approach will not change much for this one though ND has enough experience and patience to think that the pressure might not bother them too much.
It might create some spurts though and that could be enough.
For the Mountaineers it is all about that press and creating easy offense.
They scored 86 points against Bucknell but a lot of that came at the foul line – 21 free throws made.
WVU struggles in the half court at times and that is where the Irish will want to play this one. They will have to dial up the pressure and make enough shots to set it up.
This game is an interesting contrast.
