NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament: Rounds 2 & 3 - Session 1: Notre Dame vs. Northeastern & Butler vs. Texas Recap
March 19, 2015
Notre Dame took on Northeastern on Thursday. This was a game of two squads who both are known to play defense and be very efficient on offense. Notre Dame on paper is much more talented than Northeastern, but the Huskies would battle the whole game. 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.

March 19, 2015
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.

South Carolina Gamecocks vs. Northeastern Huskies Recap
February 22, 2015
In what initially looked like a departure from the previous games of the series, South Carolina used its opportunistic offense to return from a 1-run deficit in the fifth inning against Northeastern. After a few RBI singles and effective small-ball play, it was the long ball that provided the cushion SC desperately needed. Facing two outs, Alex Destino hit a 3-run homer to give the Gamecocks a lead they wouldnâ€™t relinquish for the remainder of the game. Northeastern managed to tack a few more runs on the scoreboard, but they came up short. However, questions about pitching linger for SC, and Sundayâ€™s game did nothing to assuage the pitching staff that their choice on the mound is the right one.
