Spokane: ND gaining ground

By Lindsay Schnell - March 16, 2007

Notre Dame is mounting a little bit of a comeback right now. Winthrop hasn't scored in awhile (they had a chance at the line but missed the front end of a one-and-one) and the Irish are playing a lot tougher defense. They've also thrown the ball away a few times, which hasn't helped after playing this good defense to force a turnover.

Hmm ... weird call in front of the ND bench against the Irish. I thought Jackson had swiped a steal cleanly, but they blew the whistle. Doesn't matter much because the Eagles can't hit a free throw to save thier lives, but still.

Notre Dame is starting to trap in the corners a little more and it's forcing Winthrop to take a lot of time off the clock then throw up a so-so shot. Media timeout with 7:33 left and I'm sure Marshall's telling his guys "Uh, everyone CALM DOWN. And put the ball inside."

Winthrop has pulled down a few offensive boards this half but hasn't been able to convert much. It's 54-44 ... so ND is on a 10-0 run.

Oh and Carter must have read my blog during his time on the bench because he came back in the game, drove the lane and got a layup. *Pats self on back*
