Matee Ajavon and Essence Carson came into the Joyce Center today and ruined senior day. Ajavon scored 26 (20 in the second half), and Carson added 17 for Rutgers. Notre Dame just did not look in synch most of the game. Rutgers clamped down on Allen, and the rest of the team had trouble getting the ball in the hole. The normally pesky Notre Dame defense that forces many turnovers looked human against a ranked team. We will have to see what they do in their final game, and in the Big East Tournament. They really need to step up their game to be competitive in both the Big East Tournament, and the NCAA Tournament. The Irish had their 6 game winning streak snapped today, but look to start a new one Monday at Depaul.
