Notre Dame's Cupcakes Problem

Mamma always said, you can’t live off of just junk and the same is true for college basketball teams looking to get high seeds in the NCAA Tournament.

No D against ND

I can't figure this team out. I keep thinking that one thing is the problem and then in the next few games the issues will be something different. Saturday it was the Defense. Defense was supposed to be a focal point The D even improved for long stretches. Yet it was the problem in the loss to Notre Dame. The Irish are highly efficient on Offense, but they aren't this good. A few...
