Duke's Grayson Allen looks unstoppable against Notre Dame at ACC tournament

"I mean, there have been some ups and downs, but I think guys like [freshman catcher David] LaManna and [freshman infielder] Niko Kavatas, [freshman infielder] Jared Miller, [freshman outfielder] Ryan Cole, [freshman infielder] Spencer Myers, I think they've all made a pretty good transition". Their road trip continues with a two-game series against St. Joseph's (PA) and a three-game series against No. 4 Florida State. Notre Dame ranks 109th in rebounds allowed per game (33.8). The Hokies only trailed by three and had one more possession to make something happen. Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said sarcastically in a press conference last week. Her work ethic and commitment to both sides of the ball is incredibly impressive. "Mike has that team together the whole year? She has thrived as a student-athlete at Duke in all ways". He also blocked one shot and ripped down 9 rebounds. That loss leaves Notre Dame with a season-long resume that doesn't compare favorably with most other bubble teams at first glance.

But the key for Virginia was neutralizing the active bigs of Louisville, Ray Spalding and Anas Mahmoud. "It's a flawless time for us to continue to come together and play at our best".

"Obviously we shot it well", said Clemson head coach Brad Brownell. Farrell said after the game his tenacity and energy that ignited the play proved to be the clear momentum shifter his squad needed.

Now, it's highly doubtful that the Hokies don't make the tournament, but there's now a good chance of the Hokies dropping a seed-line, or two. The NCAA Tournament selection committee takes into account when a team loses a star player close to tournament time.

Neither team could break the game open until the Hokies went on a 16-4 run with 9:15 to go in the first half, and went into halftime with a 34-21 lead. It was the sixth game this season with five or more draws for Aldave, who leads the team with 52 on the year. Down 21 at one point, a combination of Colson, Farrell and lockdown defense propelled Notre Dame to not only an upset win, but a quality win as well. The Irish also have a trio of losses against sub-100 RPI teams, one to Ball State at home, another to IN on a neutral court and a third to Georgia Tech on the road.

Goodwin, who began his college career at Central Florida, was the unanimous Atlantic Sun newcomer of the year last season. When healthy and it plays like a tournament team and looks like a tournament team, it's a tournament team. That's 37 points of production on top of leadership missing from the lineup. But before Nikeil Alexander-Walker's 3-pointer with 28.6 seconds remaining, Tech had gone six-plus minutes without a point. Colson missed eight weeks after fracturing his foot in late December and only returned for the final week of ACC play.

The sophomore was named to the All-ACC third team after finishing the season fourth in the ACC in scoring (18.4). As expected, BC, namely Bowman, went out with a fight, racking up 16 points in the game's final stages, but the Tigers hit 14 of their last 16 free throws and held on for a 90-82 victory.

It was also Bagley's seventh 30-point game of his freshman season. Senior guard Matt Farrell was 3 for 11, and Pflueger was 1 for 5. The Blue Devils hit 14 of their first 23 shots.
