Notre Dame gets another game after all. Things weren’t looking good down by as many as 16 points to Wake Forest in the opening round but the Irish battled back for an 80-77 win at the buzzer.
The Irish have a game under their belt in the ACC tourney, but North Carolina is rested after not playing since Saturday’s 91-73 pummeling of Duke to complete the season sweep of their rivals.
Notre Dame Fighting Irish
The main question for Wednesday’s matchup is what Notre Dame has left in the tank. It burns a lot of energy – emotionally and physically – to mount a 16-point second half comeback.
The Irish struggled way more than they thought they would as 9-point favorites over Wake Forest, the 2nd worst team in the ACC. A win is a win though, and four players had 14+ for the Irish in round one.
North Carolina is a different animal though, especially with the added convenience of traveling less than an hour to Greensboro for this neutral site game.
Notre Dame did manage to beat ranked Florida State by 10 last week, and matched up well with North Carolina in a 66-65 loss at Chapel Hill back in early January as +10 point underdogs.
North Carolina Tar Heels
If North Carolina can push the pace here, Notre Dame will run out of gas and this thing could get ugly late. The Tar Heels have the capability to do that, putting up 90+ in two of their last five.
UNC is huge too. They feature a couple of 6’10” starters in Armando Bacot and Garrison Brooks and have the luxury to bring 7’1″ Walker Kessler off the bench. The Irish have some size, but not that depth.
The Tar Heels outrebounded Notre Dame 44-25 in their only meeting earlier this year – but still only won by a point. It was Day’Ron Sharpe – another 6’11” player – that led the Heels with 25 points in that game.
Of course UNC could fall victim to a let down game, either looking ahead to the quarterfinals or deflating after a big win over Duke. You’d think the tournament atmosphere helps avoid that though.

Free Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs. North Carolina Tar Heels NCAAB Prediction:
North Carolina sounds like a cinnamon roll as they are huge and fresh. The Fighting Irish are dangerous when they get hot though, as shown by the 17-2 run to close out the game vs. Wake Forest.
The line is very late coming out for this game, but one would think UNC would be favored by a bunch. North Carolina also laid an egg in the tourney last year though, falling 81-53 to Syracuse before games were cancelled.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Notre Dame +Points
If the line comes out at 7 or 8, it’s a great spot to sneak Notre Dame in for not necessarily a win, but a cover.
