Notre Dame might not be as good as last season, but still a team that will be a tough out in the NCAA tournament. They can really, really score. Most efficient offense in the country. Demetrius Jackson is impossible to keep out of the lane, they have good perimeter shooters and scorers around him, plus Zach Auguste is solid inside and Bonzie Colson is a glue guy. Three road games coming up could be telling, though.

Notre Dame knocks off No. 13 Louisville

Demetrius Jackson was 6-of-12 from beyond the arc for 27 points, Steve Vasturia scored 20, and the Fighting Irish handed the Cardinals their second straight loss. Box score
