Prep star Vasturia helps spark Notre Dame's win over Princeton

West Virginia is also 1-4-1 ATS in their last six games following an ATS loss, and 1-9 ATS in their last 10 Saturday games. Elijah Macon, Esa Ahmad and Lamont West all played well in the paint in the opener, and Philip was able to drive to the hoop all game. The team Notre Dame has faced this season that is most similar to West Virginia was Florida State, Brey said.

WVU leads the nation by forcing 20.2 turnovers per game.

The West Region's fifth-seeded Fighting Irish (26-9) are still alive in the NCAA Tournament a day after surviving a first-round upset scare by hanging on for a 60-58 win over Princeton.

"This is bringing back a lot of Big East memories all afternoon and last night", Brey said. The Princeton Tigers gave them everything they could hands on Thursday.

∫ West Virginia had five players in double figures for only the second time this season. The Mountaineers found a flourish, too. Dwayne Bacon led the Seminoles with 25 points to help set up a matchup against No. 11 seed Xavier on Saturday.

Jason Meyer, a Princeton graduate from 1980 who came to Frist to watch, said afterward it was a "great game". My memory is how hard the Mountaineer crowd is on us down there - I have heard some of the most unbelievable stuff. No team turns the ball over less than Notre Dame.

The Mountaineers and Irish will meet Saturday for a 12:10 tip-off on CBS, with the victor advancing to the Sweet 16.

Liverpool's Burnley nightmare is the change Klopp needs to make
It's a curious dichotomy, because you would think a game based on consistent tactics and principles could be successful anywhere. Just a few weeks ago, Liverpool comfortably defeated Spurs at Anfield and then did the same to their rivals Arsenal.

"I think it's going to be a challenge that we've seen in prior games, for example, Florida State, Louisville how they defend so, I think playing those games in the ACC the best conference in the country helps us with games like this", said Bonzie Colson, Irish junior forward. "If we keep playing consistent on the offensive and the defensive end, . we can be trouble". "We need to somehow find somebody on the team to provide energy for whatever happens in that moment".

"That's our theme. We've got to be receivers. We can't get out of whack and start throwing up shots".

Unquestionably, the Fighting Irish and St. Patrick's Day are forever entwined. They have faced great points in the Big 12 - Frank Mason, Devante Morris, Juwan Evans - but they play far more uptempo. It went 4-for-11 from the arc, to Princeton's 8-for-31. Adrian finished with a double-double as the senior hauled down 10 rebounds. "But I think as the game goes on they adjust more to us than we adjust to them". "They try to outscore everyone". Notre Dame's Steve Vasturia pulled down the rebound and was fouled. WVU went 4-2 against those teams.

"We've got to be mentally tough and strong with the ball", said Irish point guard Matt Farrell, who will be most responsible for handling the basketball for the Irish Saturday.

After coaching Note Dame to 12 NCAA tournaments and consecutive Elite Eight appearances, Brey seems immune to the enormity. The sophomore scored 15 points in the Mountaineers' win against Bucknell.

After losing on Oklahoma State's meaningless buzzer-beating 3-pointer, even I'm questioning whether we should be doing this anymore. He throws him in the game, he bangs down a three across from our bench, and I said, 'We ain't winning today.

"The last thing I want to do is over-coach it". "In a situation like that, you're trying to do everything you can to claw back". A nod toward everyone's preferred "Inside the Irish" writer, Keith Arnold, for taking advantage of the sun in Los Angeles to let me know about the Brown interview. I've really got pretty sharp guys and high-basketball-IQ guys, so I think our thing is when we get through it, are we looking to attack?
