THE QUICK THOUGHT
There’s no getting around this... the Irish HAVE to win this game. The tension is real, and even though the game winner from T.J. Gibbs against BC seemed insignificant inside that middle school gymnasium — it was insanely huge. It was a sloppy game, and the Irish will have to refocus as Wake is coming off of a big upset against the Duke Blue Devils.
Notre Dame is basically living that tournament life right now — win or die.
