        I'll be at MSG for the game! Hopefully there'll be a big Irish turnout, the team is playing insanely good basketball, and a victory will give us some comfort for playing in the Big East tourney at MSG as well.
        GO IRISH!
        All day, every day

              Game Preview CBSSports.com

              NCAA College Basketball Preview - Notre Dame Fighting Irish at St. John's Red Storm - Feb 25, 2012 - CBSSports.com

              Notre Dame has been ranked each of the last three times it has faced St. John's in Madison Square Garden only to fall every time.

              ...

              St. John's is 0-10 against ranked opponents for the worst record in the nation. The Red Storm, however, are seeking three straight wins for the first time since Dec. 17-27.

              ...

              Notre Dame is shooting 38.9 percent on 3-pointers during this win streak. That's in stark contrast to St. John's, which owns one of the nation's worst marks in conference play at 28.1 percent - lowest in the Big East.

              ...

              St. John's has used five freshman starters with junior college newcomer God'sgift Achiuwa the only reserve in the last two games. The lack of depth has forced the Red Storm to mainly employ a zone defense.

              "They'll play kind of a matchup zone against us the whole game," Brey said. "They're only playing six guys so we have to be good against the zone like we were against Syracuse."

              ...

                  Too bad WV couldn't knock off Marquette last night, adds some pressure to the rest of the games.
                  I think the biggest thing today is getting a feel for MSG and preping for the conference tourney.

                          Slow start by the fellas. Down 7-1 with a Cooley free throw being the only point. St. John's zone defense seems to be affecting the Irish, as they haven't looked comfortable on offense yet. Hopefully the boys can knock down a few shots after the timeout and get this offense going.
                          The future of Fighting Irish football is looking bright!!!

                                                  Laughably bad shooting... and then also not rebounding. Classic way to lose a game.

                                                                                  Not too upset because this loss really doesn't effect much, they still have the potential for a double bye and the season is far from over.

                                                                                  Just a really bad game from start to finish, it happens

                                                                                          Let's be honest, we were due for something like this to happen.

                                                                                          Sucks, but overall, even as bad a loss as this is, I'm actually ok with this type of shooting game happening now rather than when it really matters.

On the plus side, this is exactly what usually happens to ND in the tournament, except today, we had a legitimate shot to win if not for bad time management by Brey. Ugly game overall, but if they had kept the streak into the BE tournament, they would've been complacent. None of this will matter if ND gets far in the Tournament. That's all that matters, and frankly, the lower ND's seed, the more comfortable I'll be.

                                                                                                    What if you're only getting the ball back with ~8 seconds? And what if you can put a ~65% FT shooter on the line in a 1-and-1?

                                                                                                    I bet if you do the math, you have a much higher chance of winning not letting a team shooting 46% from the field take a shot and getting the ball back with 8 seconds.... versus putting that guy on the line and getting the ball back with 30 seconds.
