    I'll be pretty pissed at you if you guys ruin senior night for Devon Hall, Isaiah Wilkins, and Nigel Johnson

    A lot depends on the Virginia game and the narrative that it can create. If ND could somehow come up with a win on the road in that game, finishing 9-9, with Colson back and healthy would give the committee confidence that this is an NCAA Tournament team that was simply missing 36 PPG in scoring for more than half of the ACC season and 20 PPG, 10 RPG in Colson, for the entirety of the ACC season. Finishing 9-9 in the ACC, I think they get into the NCAA Tournament with 2 wins in the ACC Tournament.

    If ND loses to Virginia, however, ND finishes 8-10 in ACC play and that won't impress the committee at all, even with the massive blows they suffered in losing Farrell and Colson. ND's computer numbers are still really good, but it would probably require a run to the ACC Tournament Championship game for ND to even be in that final 3-4 team discussion come selection Sunday.

    I sincerely doubt that happens dude. ND will be playing desperate, with Farrell's and Colson's Tournament hopes on the line, but it's Bennett vs Brey and ND travelling to Charlottesville on Senior Night. I expect ND to battle their asses off and leave it all on the line, but Colson probably isn't in 35 minutes type of shape yet and Virginia always shoots better than average vs ND and pounds the Irish on the glass. Turnovers will be huge. If Matt Farrell and TJ Gibbs try to do too much 1 on 1 nonsense when you guys are jamming up the lane, collapsing on the backdoor passes and taking charges on the pick and roll, it will be a route. It's going to take elite ball movement, Virginia missing some shots they usually make, and Geben and Colson have to combine for about 22+ rebounds and a good number of them on the offensive glass.

    UVA only team in ACC history to go 9-0 on the road in the conference.

    Really damn impressive. Some of those should have been L's, but y'all found a way to walk away with wins. That's what championship teams do.

    Yeah it was pretty brutal man. I'm sure it would have been pretty ugly on my part had the roles reversed.

    Was really impressed by Mahmoud and Adel's interviews after the game.

    You guys have impressed me more than any team this year. The fortitude of your players, coupled with their tenacity has been very impressive to me. I️ didn’t see the interviews, cliff notes?

    Good luck today Jhmossy. Hoping against hope that we can pull off a small miracle and ruin your senior day, while sneaking into the NCAA Tourament.

    Hoping for a beatdown but expecting a close competitive game. I do want to see Bonzi and ND in the tourney but not at the expense of UVA.

    Noles win an absolutely critical game against BC. Wild finish with a questionable flagrant 1.

    Anyway 20-11 now. I still think we need a win in the ACCT. let's see if Virginia and NcST help us out tonight.

    Looks like FSU will be in the 8/9 game against Louisville. Not really looking forward to playing either of those teams again

    Duke went 8-0 on the road in 2012 then lost to Lehigh in the first round of the NCAAs. Luckily you guys won't be playing MSU in the first round.

    Refs were a complete joke. Final 8 minutes of play took 48 min real time. And the foul on Angola while shooting a 3? Give me a break.

    Fwiw, we are 20-10...although we could def be 20-11 on Wednesday.

    It's a damn shame that Duke can finish in second place, two games ahead of third but four games behind first.

    Pitt on the verge of the holy grail. Lol has there ever been a worse hire in college sports than Stallings? I know there have been some flops, but taking a perennial NCAA team to a 4-32 conference record is the stuff of true losers combined with his massive buyout.

    I can't fathom a worse hire. They have been horrendously bad.

    State guard PG pulled a Chris Webber, called a timeout in the final seconds and that ended the wuffies tournament. Coudn't happen to a better fan base. Laughing
