OUR PREDICTION: Miami has had some success against Notre Dame in recent meetings between these two teams, covering in four of the past five games. Ja'Quan Newton and Davon Reed had trouble shooting in the Canes' 70-55 loss to Syracuse but should be more efficient tonight against a Fighting Irish defense that hasn't played great thus far. Plus, freshman D.J. Vasilijevic was a bright spot in the loss to the Orange, coming off the bench to score 18 points.
