Irish Insights


Irish change lineup again

Notre Dame will tip off against Dartmouth in a little less than an hour, and the Irish will be rolling out their seventh different lineup tonight.

Notre Dame, which is looking to extend its winning streak in Purcell Pavilion to 26 games, will be without forward Scott Martin. The senior captain suffered a concussion in Thursday's 87-78 win over Maine and is in street clothes.

The Irish (6-4) have a starting lineup of guards Eric Atkins, Alex Dragicevich and Jerian Grant along with forwards Tom Knight and Jack Cooley listed as the probable starting lineup.

The loss of Martin tonight likely will not hurt Notre Dame too much against Dartmouth (2-5).

The Big Green has lost their last two games and 16 of their last 18, dating back to last season.

The Irish hold a big edge in field goal percentage (.436 to .394) and points per game (69.9 to 58). Dartmouth has done better defensively so far, holding opponents to 61.4 points per game, just slightly less than the 65.3 points per game Notre Dame is giving up.

Still the Irish should cruise to a second straight victory tonight.
