Was the difference in the game. Yes the shooting hurt but the 3s at the end of the first half really hurt. Getting little from Lloyd and McBride was tough as well.
There was a sequence in the 2nd half where ND was down 6 and forced a miss. ND couldn't get 2 rebounds and then missed a box out in a missed FT. That was the last chance for ND.
The younger. more talented team finally clicked on all cylinders and had too much for ND.
but even a decent shooting night would have had this game neck and neck. It's not like UConn is dominant defensively (and they had more turnovers than ND tonight). Absolutely no flow on offense at all.
but ND did nothing to exploit it.
