ND Pummels Rutgers

 
 
After a disappointing road loss to Rutgers earlier in the season Notre Dame got its vengeance  in Purcell Pavilion.  The Irish beat Rutgers 71-53.  The Scarlet Knights dropped to 12-14 after this loss on the road, and do not seem to be in any contention for a March Madness bid.  The Irish improved their winning streak to seven games and Coach Brey seemed to solidify why he deserves to win Big East Coach of the Year. The Irish are now 18-8 and 10-3 in the conference.

 

Jack Cooley once again had a monster game, continuing his personal streak to three straight double- doubles (nine for the season).  Cooley finished the game with 22 points and 18 rebounds, with Cooley at the top of his game the Irish will be a tough team to handle in March.  The rest of the team did well with four of the five starters (including Cooley) all in double figures.  Notre Dame kept up the attack all forty minutes, they only trailed for the first five minutes of the game. The game was essentially over with five minutes left as the Irish proved why they should be taken seriously, not only in the Big East Conference, but the nation as well.

Coach Brey seems to have this team firing at all cylinders, I am not sure what Kool-Aid he has the team drinking, but whatever it is they should keep drinking it!  Follow Slap the Sign on Twitter @SlapTheSign.
