#9 UConn Huskies at #15 Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Tuesday January 4, 2011 7:00 PM EST

Line: Notre Dame -4.5

UConn lost their first road game of the season 2 games ago at #6 Pittsburgh 78-63. They nearly were upset vs South Florida 66-61 in OT. They are 2-1 vs ranked opponents. Notre Dame is coming off a 70-58 loss at Syracuse in their last game. They are now 1-2 vs ranked opponents.

Stats to consider:

UConn Huskies:

  • UConn is 11-1 with a 1-1 Big East record.
  • Points per game: 77.1 (44th)
  • Field Goal PCT: .436 (188th)
  • Rebounds per game: 42.4 (7th)
  • Assists per game: 12.9 (200th)

Notre Dame Fighting Irish:

  • Notre Dame is 12-2 with a 1-1 Big East record.
  • Points per game: 78.8 (31st)
  • Field Goal PCT: .451 (117th)
  • Rebounds per game: 40.6 (20th)
  • Assists per game: 18.3 (8th)

What to watch for:

  • UConn Junior G Kemba Walker leads all scorers with 26.7 PPG and 3.8 APG.
  • UConn Sophomore C Alex Oriakhi leads the team with 8.6 RPG and is 2nd with 11.3 PPG.
  • Notre Dame Senior F Tim Abromaitis leads the team with 16.3 PPG and 7.2 RPG.
  • FIghting Irish Senior G Ben Hansbrough leads the team with 4 APG and is 2nd with 15.2 PPG.

This sports pick will come down to defense. If Notre Dame can shut down Kemba Walker, then UConn will struggle to score points. I can see Notre Dame being too much for UConn to keep up w
