Mar 18, 2012; South Bend, IN, USA; Notre Dame Fighting Irish guard Skylar Diggins (4) celebrates during the first half against the Liberty Flames in the first round of the 2012 NCAA women

#1 Notre Dame vs #8 Cal Preview

The women’s Fighting Irish will face the California Golden Bears tomorrow in a second round match-up of two very high rebounding teams. The Bears will need their rebounding to be huge tomorrow if they want any chance at the next round.

Cal averaged a 13.2 rebounding edge over opponents this past season. Compared to Notre Dame’s 5+ on the boards last round against Liberty, I’d say Notre Dame will have to step it up in order to avoid the upset.

Skylar Diggins (Notre Dame)  will be on the prowl for yet another 20 point game. She is one of my favorites to watch because of her high intensity. Notre Dame doesn’t have a deep bench, but their core is strong. And I expect the Lady Irish

Notre Dame will win this game easily, my score predicition is 76-57.
