They say that styles make fights, and we’ve got two teams that are polar opposites in this second round battle in the West region. (4) West Virginia relies on a chaotic style of full-court pressure defense, while Notre Dame’s bread and butter is a super efficient offense. Whoever can impose their style of play on the other will punch their ticket to the Sweet Sixteen.
The Fighting Irish played in the very first game of the 2017 NCAA Tournament, and they barely avoided being upset by the (12) Princeton Tigers. Notre Dame prevailed 60-58 after Princeton couldn’t convert a wide open three-pointer with just seconds left in the game.
In West Virginia’s first game, (13) Bucknell hung around until the bitter end. The Bison fought hard, but ultimately, West Virginia was just too much for them. The Mountaineers won 86-80, and hopefully, Elijah Macon will regain feeling in his face in time for today’s game.
Now that the stage has been set, let’s breakdown all of the different ways you can watch today’s game.
