Last night in our Elite Eight game with North Carolina -- we had the lead in the 2nd half and the following happened:
  • North Carolina scored on 19 of their last 20 offensive possessions to beat us

Stephen F. Austin State's Starters and Key Subs



Notre Dame takes on Stephen F. Austin State University this afternoon at 2:40 PM ET on CBS -- for a spot in next weekend's SWEET SIXTEEN.  To get us ready for today's big ballgame -- I thought I'd do a little research on the Lumberjacks...

STARTING LINE-UP
F:  WALKUP -- 6'-4" / SENIOR
F:  HOLYFIELD -- 6'-7" / FRESHMAN
G:  FLOYD -- 5'-11" / SENIOR
G:  PINKNEY -- 5'-9" / SENIOR
G:  CHARLES -- 6'-5" / SOPHOMORE

KEY SUBSTITUTES
F:  GEFFRARD -- 6'-5" / JUNIOR
G:  CAMERON -- 6'-3" / JUNIOR
G:  JOHNSON -- 6'-0" / SENIOR
F:  WILLIAMS -- 6'-7" / JUNIOR


What to watch out for against Stephen F. Austin State:
  • Walkup shot 20 free throws against WVU -- making 19.  Do we have anyone strong enough to handle him?  I'm guessing Vasturia gets this assignment.
  • SFA likes to PRESS YOU (BIG TIME) on defense -- all day long.  They turned WVU over 22 times while only turning it over 7 times themselves -- THIS WILL BE THE KEY TO THE GAME.  Stephen F. Austin led the nation this season in forcing TURNOVERS -- at 18.73 per game
  • I am guessing Mike Brey will start Matt Farrell again -- to handle the press defense of Stephen F. Austin.

Key stat of the game:  Stephen F. Austin only made 31% of their shots -- yet they still beat West Virginia 70 - 56.

Stephen F. Austin is the hottest team in the tournament (they are not a 14 seed) -- they have not lost a game in 2016 -- winning their last 21 games.

ND's Mike Brey is Now 5 - 1 vs. Duke's Coach K


Folks, I will admit I didn't believe...

Notre Dame was down 16 points in the second half to Duke -- yet, the Fighting Irish came back to tie the game and send it into OT -- winning 84 - 79 to advance to tomorrow vs. North Carolina.

WOW!

The win -- Notre Dame's fifth over Duke in six ACC games since the Irish joined the ACC three years ago -- puts Mike Brey now 5 - 1 vs. his mentor Coach K.  No other Duke assistant has beaten Coach K --- think about that...
