The MAAC St. Peter’s Peacocks will look to stun the ACC’s Notre Dame Fighting Irish in South Bend on Wednesday night.
The Irish are a solid, experienced team that should have no problem shutting down a much less talented Peacocks squad.
St. Peter’s Peacocks
St. Peter’s, out of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference, don’t and won’t have the experience of playing top 25 teams like the Fighting Irish this year.
To date, the Peacocks’ best win has been against fellow MAAC rival Manhattan, whom they beat 84-70.
But even Manhattan doesn’t have anywhere near the caliber of talent that a team like Notre Dame has. It will be a tall order for the Peacocks to compete on Wednesday night.
For St. Peter’s to keep this game interesting, it’ll need to see a lot of production from forward/center Quadir Welton. He has been the Peacocks’ best scoring option all year, averaging 14 PPG to go along with eight rebounds.
Senior guard Trevis Wyche will have to play well on both sides of the ball, contributing his veteran leadership. He’ll hope to score a bit more than his average, 10.5 per game.
To keep this game close, the Peacocks will have to defend the perimeter extremely well and keep Notre Dame off the offensive glass.
Notre Dame Fighting Irish
Notre Dame has played pretty well in the early goings of the season. Despite losses in both of their games against ranked opponents, Villanova and Purdue, the Irish have looked good on both sides of the ball. This should be an easy contest for them.
The offense has been firing on all cylinders, thanks to four players averaging over 13 points a game. Junior Bonzie Colson has embraced a bigger role in his junior season. He’s averaging just about 17 points and 10 rebounds per game.
Senior Steve Vasturia is providing great leadership and shooting the ball extremely well. He’s averaging about 15 points per game on 48% shooting (44% from behind the 3-point line).
Add in 15 per game from V.J. Beachum and about 14 from Matt Farrell and you’ve got a recipe for a blowout against a team like St. Peter’s. As long as the Irish don’t sleepwalk through Wednesday’s game, they should take the win at home.
CBB Betting Trends:
- The OVER is 4-1 in Notre Dame’s last five games
- St. Peter’s is 1-3 on the road this season
