- We hung in there against a team that is 20-8, 13-4 in the conference and 12-1 at home, leading much of the first half, erased an 8 point deficit with a 10-0 run, gave up 13 unanswered but got it back to within 2 points, fell back by 7 and got back to 3 before giving up the final 7 points. We aren’t as good as Notre Dame but we aren’t much worse. There’s no ‘moral victories’, (an absurd term), but if Notre Dame were to play Duke, UNC and Miami, how would you expect them to do?

- The Boeheims scored 47 of our 69 points. Nepotism? Jimmy has consecutive double-doubles followed by an SU career high of 27 points with 7 rebounds. I don’t know where we’d be without him. Buddy had a hot first half, although he wasn’t able to maintain it in the second. He drew a foul on one drive and Jimmy Satalin said that it was the first time all year the refs had called that foul.

- We actually out-shot the Irish 46% to 40% and scored more points in the paint, (even with Atkinson’s heroics) 24-20. We shot 59% inside the arc, after shooting just 34% vs. Georgia Tech, 38% vs. Virginia Tech and 35% in the first BC game.

- It was fun seeing Bourama beat the field down court for that lay-up. If he and DaJuan Coleman had had good knees the last eight years might have been very different.


15-13 with 3+ to go.

LET’S GO ORANGE!
