Miami enters the final week of conference play with a chance at a shared or outright title in the ACC. Not too bad.
Notre Dame has been pretty good too but the most they can hope for is to climb the latter a couple of rungs over the final week.
Both teams look like pretty easy selections for the NCAA Tournament, though ND could certainly benefit from a little resume padding.
The Hurricanes have enjoyed a pretty good regular season. They are probably not the best team in the ACC but they really close to the top of the standings.
The Canes are an experience team and have been good all season long. We are still getting used to the idea of Miami being able to compete in ACC hoops but they did win the regular season and conference title three years ago.
Senior center Tonye Jekiri was a member of that team and now he is the backbone of this current one. He is pretty productive too averaging close to a double-double.
The key will be how Angel Rodriguez who will be in a battle with the Irish’s best player, Demetrius Jackson. If he wins that battle they Canes should win.
Even if he doesn’t Miami still is primed for a road win that would definitely pad their resume.
In my mind the Irish are in but beating another ranked team before the close of the year would only help.
Notre Dame is once again a fundamentally sound team. They are not overly deep but like Miami they have a lot of experience and guys that have been there before.
For the past couple of years we have seen how Jackson could be a star. Now that the shackles are off he has proven to be a capable lead guard.
Additionally Zach Auguste is probably more skilled than we give him credit for. All his highlights seem to be putbacks but he has a nice offensive game.
I am intrigued by the potential of this team. At home they are always a good bet to win.

Free Miami Hurricanes vs. Notre Dame Fighting Irish CBB Prediction:
The Canes are certainly capable of waltzing in and beating the Irish on their home floor. This one should be close throughout.
Still I like the highly motivated Irish to emerge as the winner, perhaps on a last second drive by Jackson.
