Unfortunately, the Irish gave up 94 that day...
Fact: The IRISH scored the most points against Baylor this season -- no other team scored more than 68. And, Notre Dame shot only 38% from the floor (only 3 - 18 from 3pt.) that night.
Fact: The IRISH were within one point in the second half 56 -55 with 13 minutes to play -- only to see the Bears go on a 14 - 3 run to extend their lead by 12 points with 9 minutes to go. A four-minute lapse by the IRISH cost them this game...
Fact: The IRISH have played 24 games in 2012 and they have not given up more than 70 points in regulation time to any opponent. The IRISH defense has vastly improved since November!
The "experts" have not been telling this story -- this is going to be a great game. It's the most dominant offensive TEAM in women's basketball against the most dominant defensive INDIVIDUAL in women's basketball.
THE TEAM vs. THE INDIVIDUAL
Don't count out the IRISH!
