South Florida Bulls at Notre Dame men's basketball preview

. today

USF at Notre Dame

When/where: 2 p.m.; Joyce Center, South Bend Ind.

TV/radio: Ch. 28; 1250-AM

Records: USF 8-15, 3-8 Big East; Notre Dame 13-10, 4-7

Notable: Notre Dame is fresh off a 33-point win against No. 7 Louisville on Thursday. That ended a surprising seven-game losing streak for the Fighting Irish, who had been ranked as high as No. 7 but need a strong finish to make the NCAA Tournament. … Notre Dame has the Big East's dominant player in 6-foot-8, 255-pound junior Luke Harangody, leading the league in both points (24.6 ppg) and rebounds (12.8). Don't forget G Kyle McAlarney, who averages 15 points and has hit 89 3-pointers this season. The Irish are the Big East's most accurate 3-point team, hitting 40.3 percent. … USF will need another big game from sophomore G Dominique Jones (18.6 ppg) but just as important needs its post players to keep Harangody from controlling the game from inside. … The Bulls return home to face Georgetown on Wednesday.
