Notre Dame looks to stay undefeated and go 9-0 heading into their game against Villanova. Here’s how to watch Notre Dame vs Fort Wayne online.
The Fighting Irish will take on a dangerous Fort Wayne team after defeating North Carolina AT&T on Sunday. In a game Notre Dame should win, it could be much closer than many predict.
Fort Wayne has already shocked the world once, beating Indiana 71-68 on November 22. Since starting 1-2, the Mastodons are on a six-game winning streak and head into South Bend 7-2. Against Notre Dame, the Mastodons are not counting themselves out until the final whistle blows.
As usual, all eyes will be on Bonzie Colson and V.J. Beachem to lead the Irish. The two stars will be a big part of Notre Dame success. If Colson and Beachem come out storming, the Irish could put this game away early. If the game is close, people will watch to see if these two step up in big moments.
A win over Fort Wayne isn’t something Notre Dame can brag about. The Mastodons beat Indiana, but haven’t beaten another impressive team all season. Notre Dame should take the W, but a close game could be in the works depending on how well Fort Wayne plays.
The Fighting Irish guards will have a lot to handle in Mo Williams. The senior guard is averaging 18.1 points per game and is dominating the defensive end of the court, averaging 2.7 steals per contest.
The matchup to watch will be Matt Farrell and Mo Williams. The two defensive monsters have earned respect this season by dominating the “other” end of the court. The key to Notre Dame’s success is to shut down Williams, and much of that will be on Farrell.
At the end of the game, the score will be one of two things – it can either be a blowout win for the Irish, or a close victory for Fort Wayne. If Notre Dame is going to stay undefeated, it’s going to come with a large margin victory. If the keep it close, Fort Wayne has all the ability to scrap their way to a win.
Look for Notre Dame to pull off a W. But don’t let it surprise you if Fort Wayne shocks the world twice.
