I honestly did not think we could have came back yesterday.
I took three things from the game.
- This team can come back against any team, no matter how good. Notre Dame is a slow it down team who takes off about 25 seconds off the shot clock. Then, because they have so many shooters and ballhandlers,they can get a good shot. Similar to Drexel. In other words, they were the absolute worst team you could possibly need to come back against. Louisville has by far the most heart in the country.
- We don't have to be at home to win. We were 18-2 and undefeated in Big East play at home. We were a measly 4-6 on the road. We are 2-0 at MSG against the best competition in the country.
- Terrence Jennings deserves some credit. He also may be the key to a Final Four run. He had a good night scoring and brought down some clutch rebounds. As ususal, pressure free throws went down for him.
The Horsepig55 Prediction team says:
Walker carries them in the first half, but Louisville keeps on running. UConn wears out and we go on a big run to end the game. Post your final score, POG(player of the game), and BEast MVP winner.
