Notre Dame fights past Michigan (3:16)

Irish overcome sluggish 1st half to beat Michigan

Down by 12 at halftime, Notre Dame came alive in the second half, taking its first lead of the game with 9:26 left and hanging on to beat Michigan 70-63 in the first round of the NCAA tournament.

Congratulations to Notre Dame, headed to a second consecutive round of 32 for the first time since the 2003 tournament. The Irish shot well all game long against Michigan (V.J. Beachem was a perfect 7-of-7 from the floor), but cutting down on turnovers in the second half made all the difference for Mike Brey's team.

Notre Dame comes back to beat Wolverines

Down 12 at halftime, the Fighting Irish stormed back to knock off Michigan 70-63. The Wolverines were held scoreless for six minutes in the final frame. V.J. Beachem was 7-of-7 from the field for 18 points to pace the Irish. Box score

Plenty of No. 11 seed karma on the line in Michigan-ND and Texas-Northern Iowa. If the Wolverines and Panthers prevail, the 11-line will be 4-0 against the No. 6 seeds (with help from Wichita State and Gonzaga). Can the Brotherhood of the 11s get it done?

Irish back in the game

Down by 12 at halftime, Notre Dame has shot its way back to tie Michigan 48-48 with 11:51 left in its first round NCAA tournament matchup. Follow live
