Coach Bennett didn't wear a tie last week vs. Virginia tech. Why did that not make it to the media headlines? Are these not the things we care most about?

But I digress. For tonight, the Hoos have the first of a challenging pair of road games coming up, against Notre Dame tonight and at Pitt on Sunday.

Since losing their leading scorer Jerian Grant, the Irish's season has taken a sharp turn for the worse, having won only three of the past eight games. Two of the wins are laughable -- OT over Canisius and a win over Virginia Tech at home -- but the third came in a two-point thriller over then-No. 7 Duke.

It'll take a hot hand for the Irish to win tonight, as the Hoos are 15-2 when their opponents are shooting less than 50% from the field. In all but one of Notre Dame's losses this year, they failed to shoot 50%.

Leave your pre-, in-, and post-game thoughts here and as always, Go HOOS!
