#7 Notre Dame vs #10 Xavier Preview: Part 2

Posted by Josh on Friday, March 16, 2012, In : Game Recaps, Notes, Previews, etc. 
Here's a breakdown of our 3 common opponents.  We had the luxury of playing all 3 at home where as the Irish did not.  We certainly fared better but 5 of the 6 games below were very early on in the season.  While the Muskies started strong and then faded, the Irish did the opposite and were on fire during the conference season.

Muskies fall to Bonnies, but face Notre Dame Friday night in NCAA Tourney

We lost to the Bonnies in the A10 title game.  It was not fun. Nicholson was out of this world and was getting the foul calls that a NBA star gets.  But guess what, time to forget about that and move on.

Looks like about a 9:40 tip Friday night against the Irish!  Should be a good one.  Much more to come.
