After a very successful regular-season the Notre Dame Fighting Irish now know what their bracket will look like. While the Fighting Irish open up with a matchup against Xavier in Greensboro, they will also have their attention on a potential third round game against Duke.

The Fighting Irish enter this game having finished third in the Big East in the regular-season. The Musketeers struggled during the middle portion of their schedule, but played well at the end of the season and advanced to the Atlantic 10 Tournament championship game, where they lost to St. Bonaventure.

Duke is the No. 2 seed in the South region, but enters the tournament with some injury questions after Ryan Kelly missed the ACC Tournament. The Blue Devils will face Lehigh in the opening round. The Mountain Hawks earned a berth in the tournament after winning the Patriot League Tournament.
