In a game from NCAA Basketball, we will see Notre Dame at North Carolina.
The Notre Dame Fighting Irish lost 2 of their last 4 games but they are coming off a 69-66 win over Boston College in the last outing. John Mooney led the Irish with 27 points on 8 of 13 shooting with 12 rebounds and 3 blocks. He is the team’s leader in rebounding while Temple Gibbs is the scoring leader with 14.7 points per game and he also adds 3.9 assists. The team is also averaging 75.2 points per game on 41.6% shooting from the field.
The North Carolina Tar Heels will look to bounce back from the humiliating loss they suffered against Louisville at home last time out, 83-62. The Tar Heels shot the ball very poorly in this one. Kenny Williams finished with 12 points and Cameron Johnson added 10 more to become the only two double-digit scorers for North Carolina. As a team, the Tar Heels are averaging 88.2 points per game on 46.8% shooting.
UNC are facing the controversy to be left without Gibbs in this upcoming game and these are not great news for the Tar Heels. They haven’t been very good defensively and if they can’t find their shot again, they will be in for a long night against the tough Notre Dame side.
