In preparation for Thursday's game at Louisville, a couple games to watch. Ohio State travels to Bloomington to take on an Indiana team that is having trouble treading water right now. A win for the Buckeyes and two Irish victories could lead to ND jumping over IU in the polls.
Connecticut goes to the RAC, always a tough place to play. While Notre Dame currently holds a game advantage over the Huskies, UCONN has a good shot of running the table. Losing to Louisville tomorrow night could drop Notre Dame to a 4 seed in the BET below the Huskies.
Speaking of Connecticut, Jerome Dyson returns to action after a nine game suspension for failing a drug test. Nine games, an easy sentence compared to Notre Dame's reaction to Kyle McAlarney's problems last season. Of course, everyone knows that story. Check out here for a great article on K-Mac's newfound glory this season from a hometown perspective.
More stuff to watch this week... Georgetown at Marquette and West Virginia at UCONN Saturday. A Golden Eagle win in the first game combined with a Notre Dame victory Thursday puts the right team in first place. A victory for the Mountaineers in the second could shore up a 3 seed in the BET win or lose at Louisville.
