SOUTH BEND, In. — Coming off a 10-point victory over the Dartmouth Big Green in their last outing, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish will be closing out their non-conference slate against the Southeastern Louisiana Lions on Thursday December 21st at the Purcell Pavilion.
This will be the first meeting between the Fighting Irish and the Lions, but the seventh between Notre Dame and a member of the Southland Conference. Notre Dame is 6-0 against teams of the Southland, with the last win coming against the Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks in the 2015 NCAA Tournament, where Rex Pflueger tipped in the last second bucket to propel the Irish to victory.
Thursday’s contest will be the final game before the players travel back home to spend the holiday season with their families.
