Notre Dame, fresh off a win against a ranked Wichita State team to win the Maui Invitational over the weekend, comes in 6-0 on the season, while MSU’s lone loss came to No. 1 Duke in Chicago. The only other time in series history when both teams were ranked in the top-5 was the 1979 NCAA Tournament, MSU defeated the Irish in Indianapolis en route to the program’s first-ever National Championship. But to fully understand the Irish this season, The State News caught up with Marek Mazurek, lead basketball reporter for The Observer, Notre Dame’s independent student publication.
