Notre Dame will have to deal with a defensive-minded Texas Tech team in its quest to make the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament. However, the Irish have the offensive firepower to pull off a win should that defensive attack break down. As far as individual leaders are concerned, they have the advantage in most offensive categories. The question is whether it will be enough to overcome that defense should it be on its game.
With the Red Raiders being at a disadvantage in most of the above categories, could that serve as a bad omen? To be fair, the Irish were behind the majority of the time when their leaders were compared to Rutgers and Alabama, and they turned out fine both times. If anything, that should be enough to make Irish fans nervous instead. Sometimes, things aren’t always as positive as they seem, and that’s enough to scare anyone during March Madness.
