We have 17 commitments. We will sign 17 on Wednesday, 18 if a Spanish class is accepted or if we are very lucky. The is no news here in over a week.
The real story is taking place across the street in the Purcell Pavilion. ND hoops continues to amaze. Just pulled off another one at UConn. All they do is: 1) make the opponent burn clock and take 1 bad shot 2) burn 30-35 seconds off our shot clock and get 1 or more good shots 3) make FTs 4) make timely 3s. What they dont do is 1) Waste dribbles which leads to pressure and turnovers 2) allow dribble penetration without a charge call lurking 3) lose their composure in case they go through a tough minute or handful of possessions. The coach never loses his cool.
They will have to play pretty terribly in order to not qualify for the tourney. 4 top 25 wins, including #1. Making the NCAA tourney this year with this roster for ND is comparable achievement to most arriving at the Final Four.
I know everybody is counting ND out with Armstead, but I just can't stop wondering how Brey and Co. doing the things that they are doing on the hardwood doesn't have Armstead scratching his head. Who wouldn't want to be apart of this team right now.
