Notre Dame will play its first home game in 17 days when the No. 9 Irish (22-5, 11-4 Big East) tip off against Seton Hall (11-16, 5-10) in a less than an hour in Purcell Pavilion.
The Irish went 2-1 on a three-game road swing and are coming off a 94-93 victory over Providence in which Friars guard Marshon Brooks scored a league-record 52 points.
Seton Hall doesn't have a player that score like Brooks, but the Pirates do have a dangerous offensive weapon in Jeremy Hazell.
The senior guard is averaging 18.9 points, and he became the Big East's all-time three-point leader when he hit 4 of 12 threes in a loss to Marquette last week.
Hazell's 192 three-pointers moved him past former Notre Dame guard Colin Falls, who had 189 three-pointers in his career.
Still tonight shouldn't be much of a problem for the Irish, who need a victory to keep second place in the conference to themselves.
Notre Dame would stay a game in front of St. John's, which defeated Villanova 81-68 earlier today to move to 11-5 in league play.
The Irish are gunning for a double-bye in the Big East tournament, and a win tonight against one of the league's bottom five teams will keep them on track.
Prediction: Notre Dame wins by at least 15.
