It’s a toss up! Anyone can win this first round game of the NCAA Tournament between #11 Michigan and #6 Notre Dame at Barclays Center in New York at 9:40pm EST on Mar. 18. Catch all the March Madness action online here!
No Cinderella’s here. March Madness continues when two big schools, Notre Dame and Michigan, battle it out in their pursuit for a national title. They may be more known for their football teams but on Mar. 18, the Wolverines and the Irish will showcase their basketball squads. Catch the hardwood action here on the live stream and watch the game online.
This is bound to be an exciting game as Michigan tries to upset slightly favored Notre Dame. The Wolverines, who arrived in New York at 2:45 in the morning, a day and a half before the game, may be fatigued having already played four games in three different cities recently.
Then there is Notre Dame who are led by their behemoth senior forward Zach Auguste. Have you seen this kid? The baller is a monster at 6’10”, 245 lbs and pulls down boards like he puts down cheeseburgers. He averages a double-double (the stats, not the In & Out burger) every game and Notre Dame can easily ride him all the way to the final four.
While the schools have played each other 36 times on the football field, they have only met twice in the NCAA Tournament. The last time being in 1976.
Notre Dame’s last game was over a week ago so they will have fresh legs coming into this contest. Or will they come out cold? Michigan however has already secured it’s first win in the tournament. The Wolverines will be carrying momentum coming off a big 67-62 win over Tulsa in their first four game in Dayton.
What do you think HollywoodLifers? Who you got in this match-up? Are your brackets already busted? Does Notre Dame have an easy win here or will the Wolverines take down the fighting Irish? Be sure to catch the game online here!
