ND Knocks off #10 G'Town: Box Score of the Day

    
January 6th, 2009

CHN now features a live scoreboard, stats, standings, etc.. here. Occasionally, we'll be featuring a box score of the day, with some commentary on why the box score is interesting. It might be involve a huge upset, a big personal effort, some odd statistical, occurrences, or other intriguing tidbit.

 

Box Score of the Day:

Today's pick is.. Notre Dame's 73-67 Win over #10 Georgetown. Coming a disappointing and surprisingly poor effort against St. John's, the Irish bounced back to pick up a monster win over a Hoya team that knocked off UCONN last week.

 

Luke Harangody is so consistently solid, that his 31 point, 11 board night doesn't even stand out as noteworthy. What is key is that unlike the St. John's game, Kyle McAlarney came through with 5 threes, and the team hit 8 overall compared to 4 the previous night. You can always count on Harangody, but Notre Dame will live and die based on whether the perimeter players hit their jumpers or not. This is not a unique situation to Notre Dame, but most teams around the country. Some night shots go in (ie, when GTown hit 46% from downtown against UCONN), and sometimes they don't (22% against ND in the loss).

 

Also of note, Harangody is up to 6th in the country in scoring, and 3rd in the country in rebounding.
