Well, the Deacs are back in action for the first time since losing to Florida State on the road last Wednesday (just go with me here). The Notre Dame player to watch is John Mooney, who is averaging 14 points and 11 rebounds per game. If we do some advanced sabermetrics comparing Koumadje’s average to his output against Wake Forest, we can determine how Mooney will play against the Deacs.
Someone may need to check my math, but it appears that Mooney is predicted to have a very strong 48 and 26 game against Wake Forest. These are flawless, advanced statistics so we better hope he under-performs.
