Notre Dame is pulling away in their Sweet Sixteen game against Wichita State and they’re doing it with some flash.
The Notre Dame Fighting Irish led by three at halftime against the Wichita State Shockers in their Sweet Sixteen matchup, but the second half was a different story as Notre Dame controlled the pace of the game.

The Irish are shooting lights out from beyond the three-point line while the Shockers keep drawing iron from downtown, but the Irish have also shown they can throw it down in the paint.
After Wichita State took a brief lead in the opening minutes coming out of halftime, Mike Brey’s team went on a run to take the lead back and extend it to double-figures as the Shockers were dominated.
Case in point is this ridiculous alley-oop from Demetrius Jackson to Zach Auguste who threw it down with authority.
This was part of a run Notre Dame went on to close out the second half of the second half as they hold a 19-point lead at the time of publishing and look destined for a showdown with the Kentucky Wildcats on Saturday, provided the undefeated Wildcats can knock off West Virginia later today.
