Princeton Juusssstt Misses Late Three-Pointer, Loses To Notre Dame 60-58

NCAA March Madness

The 5-seed is a dangerous spot to be in, as 12-seeds are more than capable of pulling off upsets. Since the NCAA Tournament expanded to a 64-team field in 1985, 12-seeds have won roughly 36% of their meetings. Just last year, Arkansas Little-Rock knocked off Purdue 85-83 (2 OT) and Yale beat Baylor 79-75 in this matchup.

In the very first game of the 2017 NCAA Tournament, we were treated to a high dose of drama. Down 59-58 with about four seconds left on the clock, the Princeton Tigers got a great look at the basket. Watch Devin Cannady give Notre Dame fans the scare of a lifetime.

Wowwww, you can’t ask for a better opportunity than that. March Madness is making its heart-stopping prescence felt immediately.

After the miss, Notre Dame’s Steve Vasturia made one of two free throws to give us our final score of 60-58. Survive and advance, baby. The Fighting Irish will now turn their focus to the winner of the #4 West Virginia/#13 Bucknell game.
