Irish Insights


Irish could be in trouble

The Notre Dame men's basketball team suffered a pair of losses at Seton Hall.

The Irish lost 90-87 to the Pirates, and they also lost forward Luke Harangody for the game's final minutes in Newark, N.J.

Harangody, who is third in the nation in scoring averaging 24.5 points, appeared to sprain his left ankle after coming down on a rebound attempt with 8:42 to play, according to The Associated Press.

He had his ankle re-taped a returned briefly before leaving for good and finished the game at the end of the Notre Dame bench in the final minutes with a towel wrapped around his neck.

If Harangody's injury hampers him for the rest of the season, the Irish (17-8, 6-6 Big East) are in a lot of trouble.

With another road loss in Big East play, Notre Dame is 1-5 in league road games.

And with losses to Rutgers (12-12, 2-9) and Seton Hall (13-9, 4-7) on their resume, the Irish will likely go from a bubble team to a longshot for the NCAA tournament.

And the longshot odds will be even bigger without Notre Dame's main weapon, Harangody, on the floor if his ankle limits him the rest of the way.
