Beware, Kentucky. That little leprechaun looms.
The pristine season, the presumed NCAA championship, the aura of invincibility and every other plaudit being thrown at the so-good-they’re-scary Wildcats are all at great risk. There’s a proven giant-killer waiting.
Notre Dame’s got next.
The Fighting Irish, with a long history of slaying basketball behemoths, stand in Kentucky’s path to the Final Four and perhaps the first undefeated season in the college game since Bobby Knight’s Indiana squad ran the table 39 years ago. On Saturday night, Notre Dame gets another chance at bringing down this team of teams, one some feel is invincible – you know, like the 1974 UCLA Bruins, who had their 88-game winning streak stopped by ND.
Double-digit underdogs, the Fighting Irish (32-5) believe they’ll take the floor with millions.
