College basketball preview: Notre Dame vs. Saint Joseph’s

Records: No. 20 Notre Dame 2-0, Saint Joseph’s 1-0

When: 9:30 p.m. today

Where: Barclays Center, Brooklyn

TV: TruTV

Radio: 1450 AM

Notre Dame leaders: Jack Cooley (17.5), Scott Martin (12.5), Eric Atkins (4.5)

Saint Joseph’s leaders: Langston Galloway (20 points), Galloway and Halil Kanacevic (2 assists), Ronald Roberts (12 rebounds)

Key matchup: Notre Dame guard Pat Connaughton will likely need to be the primary defensive stopper against Galloway, but it will take a team effort to slow down the Saint Joseph’s junior guard.

The skinny: This is the first of two games in the championship round of the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic. The Irish will play either Florida State or BYU on Saturday. … Notre Dame defeated Saint Joseph’s in the teams’ only other meeting, winning 68-65 in the 1992 Sugar Bowl Tournament. … Irish reserve center Garrick Sherman had career highs in points (22) and rebounds (9) in Notre Dame’s 84-57 home win over Monmouth on Monday.
