Notre Dame heads into final three regular-season games in four-way tie for fourth place in league standings.
The win at Cincinnati was just that, A win. Tonight DePaul comes to the Joyce Center and the Irish will need to play much better to come away with a Victory. Cincinnati pressured the ball in the second half and the Irish had trouble getting the ball up the court. The Bearcats are only 8 sometimes 9 deep. This does not fare well for a team that wants to pressure the ball the entire game. They just ran out of steam. With Russell Carter still feeling the effects of his injury, I am sure that DePaul will come in and pressure Jackson from Start to finish. If ND does not handle the ball better, execute better in the first half and run the court with more authority, this may be an Irish loss at the Joyce Center.
This is a must win for the Irish before their contest with Marquette.
The Irish are sitting pretty good right now in the Big East and could end up with a first round bye at the Gardens. And MSG does not feel like South Bend to the Irish.
