Back in the saddle again. Taking a peek at our early opponents, a few games to watch as previews for our contests.
No tough teams before playing us, but it will be interesting to see how they do out of the gate. If the Hoosiers can't win easily against Northwestern State and IUPUI, there's no reason that the Irish won't roll against them.
Neither team should lose before the trip to Maui, but this matchup will be must watch. Obviously, the winner will face the ND/IU winner, but it will also be interesting to see how both teams play in their first difficult game.
If we make the Maui finals, a date with the #1 awaits. North Carolina's contest with Kentucky on November 18th is the kind of game that will tell if the Tarheels are the best squad in the country.
The Buckeyes travel to play a solid Miami team on December 2nd right before our matchup in Indy. An easy win or bad loss could affect their mentality entering the contest with the Irish.
