Villanova are the defending champs and the top ranked team in the nation. So they are on everyone’s radar.
Notre Dame is always solid but I think they have been better this season than expected. This will be a good measure before ACC play.
A couple of ranked teams at a neutral site gives this one a very March Madness feel.
Notre Dame Fighting Irish
The Irish has been lighting it up to start the season. They are winning and winning big thanks to one of the best offenses in the nation.
Surprisingly it is Bonzie Colson who is leading the team in scoring at 17ppg. His long arms have always made him a great rebounder and he is grabbing 11rpg too.
Not far behind him is V.J. Beachem. He is a great shooter whose usage is up but percentages are down. He is good enough to help them slay any dragon.
Another player taking advantage of increased opportunity is Steve Vasturia. He has been terrific with his shooting percentage up all across the board.
The big difference this season compare to last for ND is the lack of real size. Zach Auguste gave them a total different look on offense.
Notre Dame can shoot, as well as anybody in the country. That means you always have to look at them pretty closely even if all the matchups are not favourable.
There does not appear to be much of a hangover for the defending champs – they are perfect nearly 10 games in.
It is easy to get off to such a great start with so many key players returning. The Hart and soul of the team is Josh Hart, he is the leading scorer and rebounder while being the top distributor too. Hero Kris Jenkins is back too, shooting it better than ever.
Up front Darryl Reynolds provided the bulk and toughness they need, if not much scoring. Against ND they are not going to need much more than for him to play big.
The wild card for this group remains Jalen Brunson. He was a top recruit but has yet to live up to that billing. Its not that he has been bad but he is a long way from elite.

Look for a lot of points to be scored in this one. Both teams have good defense on paper but they will be tested.
I like Villanova to win but the number will be huge. I wouldn’t go higher than -5. ND is a good matchup.
