"They really defended us. I think our turnovers, especially early, those hurt us." - @ndmikebrey— Notre Dame MBB (@NDmbb) February 5, 2013
I expected the Irish to put forth a better game on both ends.

They can't afford to play the way they played tonight.
Boeheim: On Grant's 40 minutes for 2nd straight game. "We have no one else.''— Syracuse Basketball (@PSBasketball) February 5, 2013
Until Southerland or Coleman returns, he'll continue to get heavy minutes.
Notre Dame's evening wasn't so pleasant.
Arguably one of their worst games of the season. They consistently played into Syracuse's hands, and weren't assertive enough.
