Notre Dame's ACC Tournament championship paid off for the Fighting Irish's place in the NCAA Tournament, as Mike Brey's squad drew a No. 3 seed in the Midwest Region, where they'll face No. 14 seed Northeastern. The Fighting Irish are one of the hottest teams in the country, led by future All-American Jerian Grant, who was the ACC Tournament MVP. This is a team that can make some noise over the next three weeks.

Prediction: Notre Dame has had some limited success in the NCAA Tournament in recent seasons, but this year's edition of the Fighting Irish are a group that can go far. They won't be losing in the first round. Grant will have a huge game, as he has most of the season, while leading his team to a very comfortable victory.
Expect Notre Dame to be in control from start to finish and end up winning by 15-20 points.
