Notre Dame Pulls Away From Akron

The 15th seeded Akron Zips fought hard against the 2nd seeded Notre Dame Fighting Irish in this Southwest regional matchup in Chicago but ultimately it was Ben Hansbrough and the Irish who came out on top, 69-56. Hansbrough, the Big East player of the year, led all scorers with 15 points and also had a game high eight assists. Notre Dame will play Florida State, who won a defensive struggle with Texas A&M, on Sunday for the right to advance to the Sweet Sixteen in San Antonio (round 3 television schedule).
Spero Dedes and Bob Wenzel have the report from United Center.
