With the last seconfld goal of the half and the way Denver owned the third, there was doubt. Opening up the 4th with a score to pop the lead back out to 3 was crucial.
So far this year, arguably. Should be top 5 this week.
Denver had that FOGO guy that was a friggin' faceoff machine, and ND was getting smoked on faceoffs.
Baptiste was arguably the best in NCAA history. ND struggles to get to 50% on FOs every year.
I hope it is improvement by ND as well as regression by Denver. I am not knowledgeable enough to know for sure.
ND struggled in face offs vs. Maryland. ND is winning less than 50% of FOs this year. The shot clock rules are certainly helping ND since teams can't stall as much and limit ND's possessions.
