Spokane: A game of runs

By Lindsay Schnell - March 16, 2007

We've got a ballgame here, folks.

Kurz just fouled out. Winthrop is smart, going inside every time. Speaking of its coaching staff, the guy in the pinstriped suit on the Eagles' bench looks like he's going to throw up. A minute ago he was crawling on all fours trying to tell the defense where to drop. It was interesting.

61-58 Winthrop with 3:58 to play. Good news for the Eagles: ND isn't hitting free throws either, so they'll have to make them earn their points the hard way. Carter has made some sweet moves to the basket the last few possessions, using his thick upper body to take hits when he drives. If he keeps doing that, the Irish could pull this off even without Kurz. But they need to keep it within two with two minutes to go and can't afford to just trade baskets.

The Winthrop cheerleaders were just chanting, "Junk-yard-dogs!" I'm confused.
