Notre Dame Fighting Irish
Notre Dame was solid in their tourney opener. They beat a Michigan team that had some momentum from their First Four victory but ultimately they were the better team.
The win over Michigan might have been the coming out party for V.J. Beachem. He was a role player last year as a sophomore but this season as a junior he has become an important and reliable player on a not very deep team.
He lead with 18 against Big Blue.
The Irish also got solid contributions from Demetrius Jackson and Zach Auguste. Not surprisingly Jackson played the entire game.
Auguste was super productive and should be a focus against a team without a significant inside presence. He did not log heavy minutes either and should be fresh.
Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks
It was an upset in terms of the seeding gap but SFAU’s win over West Virginia was no fluke. They were in control pretty much all game.
It helps if you have the best player on the floor in Thomas Walkup. He was a monster and if he is once again the best player on the court they will be in this one again with a threat to win it.
The amazing thing about this team is how poised they were against WVU.
Sure it helps when you have a guy like Walkup but all game long they seemed to stick to their game plan and down the stretch the moment did not seem too big for them.
The Irish are a very good team but I expect the Lumberjacks to be able to hang with them througout. The key will be once again putting on a lot of pressure and playing smart.

Free Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs. Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks CBB Prediction:
Sometimes you have a great sense of how a game is going to be played but I don’t have that here. Both are going to try and set their preferred tempo and I expect both will have some success in doing so.
I do not expect the Lumberjacks to fade but I worry that they will not have a good counter for Auguste inside.
That could be the difference.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Fighting Irish -1.5
There is a lot of value here with Notre Dame. They are not a trendy pick for the Tournament and now SFAU has become a fun team to get behind.
They will probably get lots of public money.
As good as SFAU looked on Friday they could play 35 great minutes and still lose by 10. ND knows how to close teams out and has the shooters and discipline to do so.
