Notre Dame Fighting Irish
Once again missing its two best players, Notre Dame went to Duke and got beatdown by 20.
But there is hope that Matt Farrell might be back to Saturday’s tilt at North Carolina State. Farrell will be examined ahead of the game to see if he can give it a go. Bonzie Colson is still weeks away from getting back on the court.
It’s tough to see how this season plays out for Notre Dame. Without those two guys, it’s not a Tournament team. With them, it’s a Sweet Sixteen team. If they get back in time for the ACC Tournament, the Irish have a shot to earn an auto bid.
If they do and ND doesn’t win the conference tournament, how will the committee assess them? Do you penalize a team for a long stretch of losing because it was decimated with injury? Or do you look at the here and now?
Regardless, a few more wins before Colson returns sure wouldn’t hurt Notre Dame’s chances. I’m intrigued to see if this team 1) gets healthy and then 2) gets the chance to dance.
North Carolina State Wolfpack
NC State has proven to be a tough team at home this season with wins over Duke and Clemson. But the Wolfpack turned some heads with a major road victory last weekend at Chapel Hill.
At 5–4, the ‘Pack is right in the middle of a crowded ACC standings. All of its toughest games remaining on the schedule are at home: this one, North Carolina, Florida State and Louisville.
But it will probably take a couple of those wins, plus at least a win or two in the conference tourney to get into the big one. It’ll be a fun month of February for NC State fans.
