“We got off to a great start, really flowing offensively,” Notre Dame coach Mike Brey said. “Second half Colorado really guarded us and we had to find different ways to play. We made free throws and it was kind of a grinding game. I’m proud of how we held people but we have a lot of guys that have won big games and have big game pressure on them. I thought that experience helped us escape tonight.”
