2/5 – CBB – Notre Dame at North Carolina

This game is being played Sunday instead of the scheduled Saturday date due to a water main break in Chapel Hill that has caused a water crisis.  Instead, the game is being played in Greensboro.

Notre Dame (17-6, 6-4 ACC) will likely drop out of the top 25 with 3 straight losses, but a win here would go a long way in putting the losing stretch behind them.  The Irish are led by their top 4 players in Bonzie Colson, V.J. Beachem, Steve Vasturia and Matt Farrell, who all score in double figures and all play more than 30 minutes per game.

North Carolina (20-4, 8-2) lost at Miami last Saturday, but bounced back on Tuesday, beating Pitt at home.  The Tar Heels also feature 4 players averaging double figures - Justin Jackson, Joel Berry II, Isaiah Hicks and Kennedy Meeks.
