Big East Tournament Picks: Rutgers Scarlet Knights vs. Notre Dame Fighting Irish
Date: Wednesday, March 13th, 9:00 ET
Location: Madison Square Garden, New York, NY
Rutgers vs. Notre Dame Live TV: ESPN2
The Fighting Irish could get a bit of a challenge here from the Scarlet Knights if they aren’t careful. Notre Dame is a great team, but it has lost its way offensively, averaging just 59.0 points per game in its last six. Rutgers meanwhile, hasn’t lost a game by more than eight points in nine games, and it looked great last night, albeit against the lowly DePaul Blue Demons. Men are stepping up all over the place for Head Coach Mike Rice, and he has to know that his team has a shot to make it to the NIT if it can win this game and pull off the upset. Will Rutgers ultimately get the job done? We’re not all that sure. However, we know that this is a lot of points that the Scarlet Knights are going to be getting to start off in the second round of the Big East Tournament, and at just 3-3 SU and ATS in its last six games, we don’t want to be backing the Irish right now.
