Where to watch: Alabama (3-2) vs. No. 17 Notre Dame (4-1) – Today 6 p.m. Central, HP Field House (Bay Lake, Fla.), ESPNU
Who to watch: Riley Norris – The sophomore swingman from Albertville has been the best surprise of the young season. He notched a dozen points Friday against Wichita State, his second game in double figures already after just five last season. The Crimson Tide needs at least three 10-point plus scorers each game, and having Norris provide a boost off the bench improves those odds.
What to watch for: How effective Bama is in the paint. Notre Dame has 6-foot-10 center Zach Auguste to guard the basket but he got burned more than once in Friday’s win over Iowa. In the Irish’s stunning quarterfinals loss, Monmouth guard Justin Robinson scored 14 of his 22 points at the free throw line after getting repeatedly fouled on drives to the basket. That’s a strategy Dazon Ingram has already successfully used for Bama.
