The Notre Dame Fighting Irish released their 2017-18 non-conference schedule Thursday night, with a trip to East Lansing to take on the Michigan State Spartans  as a part of the ACC/Big 10 Challenge as the highlight.

Apart from what I am expecting to be another tough ACC conference schedule, Notre Dame will take a variety of past and new opponents in their non-conference slot.

The Red Flash came in with a 2-2 record overall, but were coming off a loss against Kent State in their last time out.

On Friday afternoon inside Hytche Arena, his strong play carried the Hawks to their first victory of the season, a 70-57 defeat of the visiting Saint Francis (PA) Red Flash.
