SOUTH BEND, IN. — Coming off of a demoralizing loss to the third-ranked team in the country on Thursday, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish added another “W” to the win column Sunday afternoon, as they defeated the St. Francis (Brooklyn) Terriers, 71-53.

While the Terriers are not the flashiest opponent, the game brought plenty of excitement, as Notre Dame Head Coach Mike Brey and Bonzie Colson were tossed from the game with six minutes left in the second half.

Sunday afternoon’s game marked the first time in 23 years that Mike Brey has ever been thrown out from a game.

The ejections did not concern the Irish one bit, as they handled the Terriers with ease towards the end. But, what should concern the Irish is the fact that the bench continued to under perform, even against an opponent like St. Francis.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. — College basketball games are 40 minutes in length, and on Sunday against the Central Connecticut State Blue Devils, the Rutgers Scarlet Knights needed every minute to come away victorious.

Rutgers opened their season with a 94-38 win over the CCNY Beavers on Friday, and they did so without Mike Williams. With Williams back in the lineup, they were looking to move to 2-0 in the early stages of 2017-18.

The Blue Devils came into Sunday on the heels of a one-point loss to the Hartford Hawks in their opener, a game in which freshman guard Tyler Kohl emerged as a potential go-to guy on offense for coach Donyell Marshall. They were looking to notch their first win on the year, and they took the fight to Rutgers from the opening tip and didn’t make things easy.

Central Connecticut State led for most of the first half, but Rutgers fought their way back and took a slim one-point lead into the break.

A back-and-forth second half ultimately led to the Scarlet Knights opening up a double-digit lead, only to see the Blue Devils come back and make Rutgers work to the final buzzer to secure the win.

When all was said and done, Rutgers held down home court and came away with the 71-67 victory. Continue reading Williams scores 23 points to lead Rutgers past Central Connecticut State, 71-67
