  1. Well, guess that was nice while it lasted. I just saw the conference tournaments, including the ACC’s, are done. I have to think that the NCAA Tournament is at high risk of being cancelled as well.

    I’m not sure if they’ll postpone it to a later date, but college is not like the pros. I’m frankly doubtful but we’ll see.

    I also see not only is the NBA shut down, but so is the NHL and major league baseball is expected to follow suit.

    Everyone’s saying not to panic, that for most healthy people COVID-19 is nothing more than a minor inconvenience. But I don’t remember all this going down during the swine flu or SARS epidemics. I don’t know if it’s just social media feeding the fire or what.

  2. For once the Irish had a good, solid game front to back. My only complaint is they sort of let BC hang around. The Irish had chances to basically put it away early but it seemed BC was always within about 10 points. But they took care of business and towards the end of the game they put away BC for good.

    I was glad to see multiple players contribute. Mooney had an almost quiet game by his usual standards. That was fine for last night and I was glad to see him be able to get a little rest toward the end of the game. Because tonight they are going to need Mooney to be on his game like usual—and it’d be nice if the rest of the team contributed like last night too.

    One thing I’ll be interested to see tonight is how the lack of fans in the stands will affect the Irish. I honestly don’t know. Will it help the Irish, Virginia? Both? Neither? I can see scenarios where it might help the Irish. Maybe it will help them stay focused and locked in. But not having fans to root you one and to feed off of can be a disadvantage as well. If it’s a case where Virginia would have more fans then ND in the stands, then I’d see it helping ND more than Virginia. I guess we’ll find out. It’ll be surreal to see though.

    Go Irish!
