Notre Dame Vs. Villanova Preview: Irish Go For 8 Straight

Can the Irish keep it rolling on Saturday?

Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey has authored one of the more impressive turnarounds in college basketball this season, and the Irish have won seven in a row to claim a tie for second place in the Big East. While they may not catch the first place Syracuse Orange, what the Irish have been able to do without the injured Tim Abromaitis is very impressive.

Game Date & Time: Saturday, Feb. 18, 9:00 p.m. ET

TV: ESPNU
