  • a close up of a baseball player holding a bat: PLAYER OF THE GAMEEvery time quarterback Case Keenum is featured in our Upon Further Review articles, it seems we’re always praising him for being just about perfect.He was again Sunday.In three quarters of play, Keenum threw for 236 yards and two touchdowns on 20-of-23 passing and proudly donned the “NFC North Champions” hat after the game — a cap he earned more than anybody on the team.He also played a big part in the coolest moment of the game in the fourth quarter. We’ll get to that in a bit. But it sealed his Player of the Game status, for sure.

    Can Vikings QB Keenum get it done in the playoffs?

Berry finished with 15 points while Luke Maye had a double-double - 17 points and 11 rebounds - and Theo Pinson added 13 for the Tar Heels (14-4, 3-2). Sophomore point guard T.J. Gibbs got a game-high 19 points and six assists for the Irish (13-5, 3-2).

Gibbs dribbled downcourt and got off an errant shot but got a rebound which spun out at the buzzer. Senior center Martinas Geben hit his first career 3-pointer while scoring 14 for Notre Dame and reserve

Kevin Stepherson one of four Notre Dame football players dismissed

  Kevin Stepherson one of four Notre Dame football players dismissed University of Notre Dame football coach Brian Kelly has dismissed four players from the team. Per a report from Pete Sampson of Irish Illustrated, sophomore receiver Kevin Stepherson, fresman running back C.J. Holmes, sophomore running back Deon McIntosh and junior nose guard Brandon Tiassum have all been given their walking papers.Tiassum’s dismissal can be categorized as surprising. He didn’t log much playing time for the team in 2017, but hadn’t had any known disciplinary issues. None of the other three dismissals, however, can be called surprising.Stepherson has had numerous issues with the law.

Gibbs, who missed his first four shots, finally got on the board with 7:44 left after the Irish endured a 6:54 stretch without a field goal. He finished with nine points.

Geben scored four points, had two offensive boards and took a charge as Notre Dame started the second half on an 11-7 run for a 48-47 lead with 14:40 to play.

After five straight points by Pinson gave the Tar Heels a 56-50 lead with 9:48 to play, Notre Dame called a timeout. A 10-4 spurt highlighted by two 3-pointers by Gibbs after his backhanded missed field goal was hammered home by Rex Pflueger and made it 60-60 with 6:53 left.

Djogo then hit two 3-pointers to put the Irish up 66-60 with 5:58 remaining. But the Tar Heels closed with a 9-2 run as the Irish missed their final nine shots from the field.

BIG PICTURE

North Carolina: The Tar Heels, who lost games at Florida State and Virginia earlier this month, got their first ACC road victory and avoided three straight ACC road losses for the first time since 2014. North Carolina has had winning road records in 11 of its 14 seasons under coach Roy Williams, who got the 830th victory of his career to tie him with Mount St. Mary's Jim Phelan on the all-time list.

Notre Dame: Matt Farrell, who has missed the last 2 1/2 games with a sprained ankle, dressed and led Notre Dame out of tunnel for pre-game warmups but sat on the bench with fellow senior Bonzie Colson (broken left foot, eight weeks) as Brey used eight players, with five of them finishing in double digits in minutes in the first 20 minutes.
