What is the difference in the Irish's performances at the Joyce Center and away from home in Big East play? There are a few differences. In five games in South Bend, Notre Dame is allowing 63 points per game and have a rebounding margin of +21 in those contests. In the five conference road games, the Irish allow 79 PPG and the rebounding margin is -28.
The Irish have three road games remaining. They travel to DePaul on Thursday night, go to Cincinnati on February 18th and then make a journey to New Jersey on March 3rd to Rutgers to end the conference regular season. The positive: these three teams have a combined mark of 7-21 in Big East play. A 3-0 swing is a possibility and anything less than 2-1 would be a disappointment. The negative: they've already lost to St. John's and South Florida on the road, who are a combined 7-12 in league action.
