The game in the first half was back and forth, and eventually the Fighting Irish would take the lead by 4 into halftime. Northeastern would not stop battling and pushed Notre Dame to the limit. Zach Auguste would be the key factor for Notre Dame putting up 25 points and would lead the Irish down the stretch and give them a 4 point victory and move onto the next round.

On March 19th, 2015 NCAA Men's BasketBall Tournament wound up rounds two and three as follows: Notre Dame against Northeastern, Butler playing against Texas, Villanova vs. Lafayette,and North Carolina State vs. LSU. The morning's affairs were an eye-opener with Notre-Dame maintaining its winning-streak, only this time by a very slim margin against North-Eastern. Most likely because the game was not on the home-turf this time; and the team may have been a little tired due to being first on schedule after having arrived yesterday and having a little bit of jet-lag. Notri-Dame's star player however saved the game after a time-out after fast action down the court making a winning basket and breaking a tie dispite careful planning on the part of North-Eastern during a time-out. The remaining three games will be played this afternoon beginning at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, and Saturday beginning at 1:00 p.m. EDT. Finals will then begin on Monday 9:00 a.m. followed by a break for lunch at noon, and the NCAA Tournament will then end at 5:00 p.m. EDT.
