Notre Dame is headed into their second season in the ACC and 15th season under head coach Mike Brey. The Fighting Irish missed the NCAA tournament last year after going 15-17 on the season. This was the first time under Brey that they didn’t participate in a postseason tournament and broke their streak of four consecutive NCAA tournament appearances.
Notre Dame is led by senior guard Jerian Grant. Grant missed the entire second semester last season due to academic reasons and was averaging 19 points and 6.2 assists per game through 12 games. The loss of Grant sent the Fighting Irish into a downward spiral. Notre Dame won eight of their first 12 games with Grant and only won seven games after his last appearance on December 21st.
Pat Connaughton is also expected to contribute heavily for the Fighting Irish this season after the senior forward had 13.8 points and 7.1 rebounds per game last year. The Fighting Irish look to bounce back after a rough season and they’ll be tested early with a tough non-conference schedule. On the secondary market, 2014-15 Notre Dame basketball tickets have an average price of $69.34, according to TiqIQ.
One of the more exciting match ups will be against Michigan State on December 3rd. Against the Spartans, fans can expect to pay, on average, $106.94 to see this great matchup, 54.2% above the season average. The get-in price for this matchup is at $34.
Notre Dame’s conference schedule is loaded considering they play in the ACC, though due to an unbalanced schedule, the Fighting Irish won’t face North Carolina at home. That leaves a home matchup with No. 4 Duke as the biggest game of the year at home. Notre Dame vs Duke basketball ticket prices for the January 28th matchup has an average of $147.61 on the secondary ticket market and the get-in price is $48.
