Big Willie Style and Coach O here watching the Notre Dame-Seton Hall game. We’re starting a little late, but we’ll get you updated soon. 8-8 tie right now, 13 minutes in.
7:14 pm EST: “Notre Dame shoots the 3 better in their wins, than in their losses.” -Doris Burke. Thank you very much for this wonderful insight.
7:19 pm EST: Anyone else notice how great Seton Hall’s uniforms are? Why don’t more teams wear Blue, Silver and White?
7:20 pm EST: ESPN showing standings right now, ND needs this one for the double bye in the BE Tournament, but they’re not off to a great start.
7:21 pm EST: Cooley just threw a guy on the floor. Refs aren’t calling anything. They’re stealing money from the Big East.
7:23 pm EST: Coach O’s a ND fan, he’s getting pessimistic already.
7:27 pm EST: Our apologies to Doris Burke, we thought you were Beth Mowins.
7:29 pm EST: ESPN talking about Big East player of the year. They showed 5 candidates. The one missing? Pittsburgh’s Ashton Gibbs. I agree with them.
7:32 pm EST: Wow. Seton Hall’s looking good right now.
7:33 pm EST: Seton Hall, controlling the boards so far. ND should have saved some of the points from the PC game for this one.
7:36 pm EST: Coach O hates PA announcers who say 33333333333333333333!
7:41 pm EST: Hanbrough’s made 3 nice plays in a row. Shot, rebound and pass.
7:42 pm EST: Lovin’ these Pirate uniforms. Best unis in the conference.
7:45 pm EST: OOOOOOOOO! What a shot to close the half.
8:00 pm EST: Really enjoyed the promo for Notre Dame with the Irish blessing. Good stuff ND.
8:03 pm EST: 2nd Half! Here we go!
8:05 pm EST: Mike Brey is pretty fired up after that Nash put back. Love to see a coach react like that. Perhaps that’s why his players always speak so highly of him.
8:05 pm EST: Seton Hall’s still up 1, but you can feel the momentum here. The Pirates may be in a bit of trouble.
8:09 pm EST: What’s with Seton Hall being the Pirates? We’re trying to come up with a better nickname. We think the Oranges would be better, considering their location. But then Syracuse would probably sue them for copyright infringement. SOBs.
8:16 pm EST: Impressive loose ball play from Abromaitis and the Irish.
8:19pm EST: Ball seems to be bouncing ND’s way right now.
8:26pm EST: Game’s moving a little slow right now. ND looks alright up by 5 with 12:00 minutes left. However, game’s closer than the Irish want.
8:27pm EST: ESPN is talking about the top seeds in the NCAA tourney. They have BYU and SD State as #2 seeds. IMPOSSIBLE! There’s no way San Diego State gets a two seed after losing to BYU twice.
8:33pm EST: Pretty ugly basketball right now. A lot of dribbling, not much scoring.
8:41pm EST: 5 point game, 5 minutes left.
8:42pm EST: Jim Calhoun, if you’re paying attention: Watch Notre Dame’s offense against a 2-3 zone. It’s way better than the “please Kemba, make a shot offense”
8:44pm EST: Great ball movement from Notre Dame. Coach O is excited because the ND student section is wearing his high school basketball number.
8:49pm EST: Big defensive position for Seton Hall. Great shot for Hansbrough. That could be it for the Pirates.
8:51pm EST: Martin just iced the game.
8:54pm EST: Good effort from Seton Hall. Great comeback from Notre Dame. Solid victory for the Irish.
