The Notre Dame basketball team kicks off their 2021-22 season today, as they play host to CSU Northridge inside Purcell Pavilion.
The time has finally come for the Notre Dame basketball team to kick off their 2021-22 season, and they will do so against the CSU Northridge Matadors. The Irish are coming off another season on the outside looking in at the NCAA Tournament, a trend that must end if Mike Brey is to continue as the program’s head coach.
Luckily for Brey, he has a group returning that he can certainly trust, as it is a veteran-laden lineup featuring one of the top point guards in the ACC in Prentiss Hubb. In 2020-21, Hubb emerged as a true leader of this team, a group that also saw the emergence of Nate Laszewski, a smooth big man who can light it from the inside, out.
In Game No. 1, the Irish should roll, as they take on a Matadors team that was blown out by 40 points in their season opener on the road against USC back on November 9. In that game, guards Atin Wright and Darius Brown II led the team with ten points apiece.
Notre Dame basketball vs CSU Northridge Odds: Line, Spread, Over/Under
According to WynnBet, the Notre Dame basketball team is slated to roll over CSU Northridge today at home. The Irish are 24-point favorites against the Matadors, and if they play the way they should, as a veteran group, this one should be an easy win that gets their 2021-22 season off on the right foot.
The over/under for this matchup is set at 150, and you have to think that means the Irish could come close to the 100-point mark in this one. This is going to be a game that should be a cupcake, which means we could get our first glimpses at true freshmen J.R. Konieczny and Blake Wesley.
