No. 2 Notre Dame 96, No. 3 UConn 87

St. John’s And Notre Dame Got Into A Little Fight At The End Of Their Game

Rule number 1 of punching a guy in the face, put your hands up afterwards like you don’t know what happened and you weren’t a part of anything. Classic move, Sir’Dominic Pointer. I’ll give Cameron Biedscheid credit, he has a steel jaw. Pointer landed a few spot on punches, but Biedscheid just kept on standing and swinging back. The real issue at hand isn’t that Sir...

Manti Te’o: I’m Obviously Faster than I showed at the Combine
