On the plus side, the Irish really can't defend the Princeton drivers without leaving easy trey attempts. Got to hit them.


This. That's how to win the game. Plus keep ND off the boards.

Brey is clearly worried about all the good outside looks PU is getting in his interview with LaForce, although "worried" is a relative thing for the always-upbeat leperchaun.

Maybe a good idea in the second half to not let Vasturia get three straight offensive rebounds on the same possession while four Tigers stand around and gawk at him.

5-17 from 3 won't do it.

But the shots are there.

P is outmatched inside, looks like a serious uphill battle to come back from the half. Need to drain those 3s to get back in it and box out interior rebounds on D. ND unfortunately is keep composure as expected and aggressive inside. No bright ideas here on how to come back :(, just looks like a really tough match up for P where their strengths are matched by ND.

In other 5-12 action, UNCW up 23-11 on UVA midway through the first half.

Everyone was on this "upset" because it's the classic example of favoring big conference teams over simply better teams from smaller conferences

ND now having its way inside. We'll have to adjust at ht. ND will try to cut our open opportunities outside. We aren't out of it yet, but we need to steal some luck from the Irish.

GO TIGERS!

Nice to have some other IL followers -- at least for this game.

I don't know what you are watching---ND cannot stay with Princeton off the dribble nor cover the 3. Princeton is struggling just in the paint. Princeton hits its open 3s and it will win the game.

Princeton needs to use the quickness advantage it's showing on offense to beat the more muscular Notre Dame players to the rebound on D. Both teams currently playing to their strengths offensively in the paint (which in ND's case is literally strength).

I don't see any schematic adjustments that need to be made. Stop losing guys on missed assignments, box out better, and don't be surprised that it takes more force on the ball to knock it out of these guys' hands than previous opponents. Keep running the offense and just knock down the open jumpers.

ND may go zone more in the second half, if Brey's interview is a clue. Obviously that will put even more of a premium on treys. It could be a Mike James dream half because La Force reported that Henderson wants to force ND to get 70% of its offense inside the arc on contested twos, while Brey appears to be preparing to dare the Tigers to shoot it from three. Like an analytics test.

Also, Weisz really looked very player-of-the-year in that half. Cook was nervous, Cannady was a bit off, but Weisz was really operating out there on offense. Unfortunately, he got beat one-on-one on D a couple of times, but ND does that to a lot of guys.

Farrell blowing by Cook on a drive is not a good sign.

Yup. Although played him better on next possession.

They're triple-teaming Weisz, which is wild.

19-3 run to end the half gives UVA the 1-point lead on UNCW.

Can't commit TOs like that so many times in a row. Tigers keep appealing to the officials after the play and it isn't working. Better to focus on the next thing.
