Film Session: Notre Dame
After Notre Dame tied the game at 47-all with 6:50 to go, the Hoosiers took control on both sides of the ball, closing out the game with a 17-9 advantage to hold onto the victory.
It was a contrast to their performance against Wisconsin earlier this month when they squandered opportunities to win the contest as things got tight down the stretch.
We’ll take a look at Indiana’s winning plays to close out the contest in the latest edition of Film Session:
With Indiana unable to enter the ball to Trayce Jackson-Davis on the right low block due to a front, the Hoosiers swing the ball around the perimeter.
The ball eventually finds itself with Race Thompson on the opposite post and he’s got a mismatch against Dane Goodwin.
Blake Wesley hangs in the paint and appears to be ready to double, but he’s also got a watchful eye on Jackson-Davis, allowing Thompson to continue to go 1-on-1 with Goodwin and eventually hit a shot in the paint over him.
Thompson picked his spots in this one, finishing 4-of-4 from the field and hitting this crucial bucket just after the Irish tied the game.
