I stayed up waaaay past my normal bedtime to watch the Pats do battle with the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame in the NCAA first round. Unfortunately, Rudy was not on the floor for the Irish.
The Pats took a 68-50 beating. Basically, they were never in it. Great game by Will Thomas who dominated Harangody inside (at least in my biased opinion). But the outside shooting was frigid and you can’t win as a mid-major if you’re not knocking down threes.
Mason will regroup. It was a slightly down year for the CAA, as VCU went out in the NIT early on. A couple new recruits should turn it around.
Wait til next year.
