March Madness: 5 can't-miss games to watch on Day 1

Juniors Bonzie Colson and Matt Farrell led the way with 18 and 16 points, respectively. "But we weren't really anxious about that".

In the end, the details mattered little.

Irish sophomore guard Rex Pflueger walks off the court after taking an elbow to the head during Thursday's 60-58 first-round win over Princeton in Buffalo, New York.

Notre Dame benefited from three straight defensive stops to begin the second session, and Princeton did not score until almost four minutes into the half. Cannady's Tigers led for all of 17 seconds all day, but they proved particularly tough to put away.

On the same night in 1977, West Virginia defeated Bucknell 112-71 in the last time those two schools met.

Despite his injury, Colson was the best player on the floor. "At the end we started to get back to our old ways" Cook noted.

"I have to be better down the stretch, I took a couple bad shots and I have to make free throws down the stretch", Farrell said. "It doesn't matter how you got there". The Fighting Irish, after a big opening win in Buffalo, won't alter much from the proven approach now.

Trump's Buddies Belichick, Kraft Making Patriots Great Again This Offseason
Two years earlier in Super Bowl 49, Hightower tackled Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch at the 1-yard line with 1:06 to play. In five seasons with the team, Hightower has helped them win two Super Bowls and he's an integral part of the team.

Notre Dame advances to encounter the victor between No. 4 West Virginia and No. 13 Bucknell, which will produce a new matchup this season regardless of the victor.

Brey's crew made only one of its final 10 field-goal attempts (a Colson layup at 2:07 to push Notre Dame ahead by three). And he took the shot that would go down in Princeton history.

"This might be the hardest (game to win in the tourney)", Vasturia said.

The Republican has been friends with Notre Dame coach Mike Brey since he worked at the University of Delaware. Two years ago, we played, like, a three-point game against Northeastern. Our driving opportunities at the right time have been really good.

Christie's son Andrew graduated from Princeton past year and played for its baseball team.

"He's not a Princeton fan", Vasturia said, smiling. "16 and 0 in the Ivy League, and getting the program back to the winning ways, it's been an incredible season and I've done it with people I can call family ". The Lady Toppers are making their 19th tournament appearance and have won at least one game in half of their appearances. "It wasn't the prettiest of games for us, but we found a way to get a win and that's what it's all about". They're a good team, they have a lot of good movement, but we talked and we communicated. We got out. I thought our sense of urgency, switching stuff, getting out on shooters, was a key. "They've done that a lot, so I'm a lot calmer with this group because they've been poised in endgame situations". On the other side, Farrell and Colson combined for 34 out of the 60 Irish points in the game.

The Irish, who started the season for the first time ever at No. 1 in the AP Top 25, were dominated at home by top-ranked CT 72-61 in early December, were beaten at North Carolina State 70-62 in the Atlantic Coast Conference opener later that month and lost 71-69 at Tennessee in mid-January.
