Kind of hard to believe but right now Indiana is not even in the top three programs in the state. This game likely confirms their spot.
Notre Dame really rose up quickly this season and has a nice win over Wichita State but the loss to Ball State is still a head scratcher.
The Hoosiers program is not what it used to be. They have competed against good teams though and this is not a terrible matchup for them.
Juwan Morgan has become the top scorer and rebounder for Indiana under their new regime. He has had at least 15 points and 8 boards in each of the last three games.
Robert Johnson played 35 minutes and scored zero points in their last game, a loss to Louisville. He is known for his defense but they need scoring from him too.
Indiana is not the better of the two teams but the style of play will help them in this one.
Notre Dame Fighting Irish
The Irish seemed to bounce back from their surprising loss last week. It has been a funny season in part due to those results. They did clobber Delaware in their last outing.
Notre Dame never plays at a blistering pace but they score a lot of points because they are very efficient. They only play 7 guys with regularity but that is not likely to cost them in this matchup.
Bonzie Colson is having another nice season but he is hard to figure out as a feature scorer. He has big games but is not what I would consider a feature scorer.
Temple Gibbs is a great talent. He is showing as a sophomore what he is capable of, especially has a shooter – he is making more than half of his three pointers. I can see him carrying this team in the future.

Free Indiana Hoosiers vs. Notre Dame Fighting Irish NCAAB Prediction:
This is a a neutral site game but I would think that more Indiana fans will be there than Notre Dame. Indiana still has the better hoop culture.
Notre Dame should be the favourite though. I imagine in in the -5 to 07 range.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Small lean OVER
I love ND whenever they are an underdog but their depth worries mean when there is a big number against a quality opponent. Hopefully this falls in the sweet spot.
