Blue Devils blow past Irish in quarterfinals

Blue Devils blow past Irish in quarterfinals”

Ogunbowale's 646 total points stands as the eight most for a single-season, while her 20.2 ppg ties Beth (Morgan) Cunningham for the second most, with Katryna Gaither holding the top-spot at 20.4.

Bagley, the 6-foot-11 ACC Player of the Year, dominated for stretches of the second half as second-seeded Duke took out a wiped-out Irish squad in the quarterfinals of the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament at Barclays Center 88-70.

The Hokies have no games on the schedule in the near future, but that'll change this Sunday when the NCAA selection committee places the Hokies in its 68-team bracket. "I think, my memory is not as good as it used to be, but I think we kept playing".

With the Irish stars struggling to make shots, seventh-seeded Virginia Tech (21-11) was cruising along with a 47-26 lead with 14 minutes remaining when Farrell drained his second consecutive 3. Bagley missed his final five shots of the half, and Allen missed two.

In the second-half, there was a monumental shift in momentum.

"He's really impressive", Brey said. I didn't say much at halftime.

"He played gingerly tonight, and we'll see about tomorrow", Krzyzewski said.

Freshman big man Marvin Bagley, who was recently named both the ACC Rookie and Player of the Year, posted 33 points and 17 rebounds. And during the first half it was interesting. The Cavaliers won on the glass, 34-25, and arguably the best defensive team in the nation held the Cardinals to one field goal in the final nine minutes.

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Notre Dame still has a shot at being a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament after several knee injuries crippled the Fighting Irish this season.

Guards Justin Bibbs and Justin Robinson tallied a team-high 15 points apiece and forward Kerry Blackshear Jr. nearly posted a double-double with nine points and eight rebounds. After an offensive foul was called on Chris Clarke, Farrell took the ball right out of his hands as Clarke argued.

"I think it kind of showed toughness", Farrell said. "We've got to start games like that. Try to help them grow and try to help them get better and try to adjust to the college level and I think probably more than anything, mentally making that transition will continue to help us a lot".

Chipping away at the lead, Notre Dame used a 10-to-1 run to bring it within four.

The Archer grad led the Peach Belt in scoring (20.3), reaching double figures in every game as the team qualified for the NCAA Division II Tournament, and averaged 4.9 rebounds and 2.1 steals. Clutch free throws sealed it, capping a 50-point second half.

Notre Dame and Virginia Tech will meet for the ninth time on Sunday with the Irish holding an 8-0 all-time advantage. "I don't know how that bubble works but they're very good and we were very good in order to beat them".

With the victory, Notre Dame will play Duke in the quarterfinals of the ACC Tournament at 7 p.m. ET on Thursday, March 8. With 22 points on 5-for-13 shooting, Matt Farrell was the top scorer from either team. This time around, he said, it's a whole different ballgame. The game got a little testy as the Irish picked up the intensity and the Hokies went cold on offense. "It's going to be another opportunity for us, and we're excited about it".
