Notre Dame vs. Michigan?
It could happen but we'll have to wait. The Fighting Irish were selected as the 6th seed in the East region and will open play Friday night. However, they'll have to see who wins the play-in game between Michigan and Tulsa (Wednesday, 9:10 PM on TruTV) to set the 1st round opponent.
Notre Dame vs. Michigan/Tulsa
Date: Friday, March 18th
Time: 9:45 PM ET
Location: Barclays Center, Brooklyn
The higher seeds in Notre Dame's region include North Carolina, Xavier, West Virginia, Kentucky, and Indiana. The Irish have to like their chances in the first round but a win would welcome a matchup against a fast and deep West Virginia team that just lost to Kansas in the Big 12 Championship.
