Well here we go. The conventional wisdom points to the Fighting Irish getting their revenge at Joyce Center for last year's Bruin destruction in Pauley. I believe Mike Brey's team is about 12 points favorite heading into this afternoon's tipoff starting around 11 am PST. If the Bruins are going to have a shot this afternoon they will have to stick with the classic Ben Ball formula of fundamentally sound offense and the kind of hard nosed defense that will have Nelson, Honeycutt and rest of their team-mates inside the Irish jerseys all afternoon long.
May be, just may be the Bruins will come out inspired and give us an all our defensive effort that will make Digger cry. Fire away.
