Outlook: Both teams enter this contest with perfect records in the Big East. The Fighting Irish's top-ranked defense in Division I is anchored by sophomore goalkeeper John Kemp, who ranks second in goals-against average (5.96) and save percentage (.631). Junior attackman Tom Palasek, a Johns Hopkins transfer who was named the Big East Offensive Player of the Week, leads the Orange in scoring over the past three games with nine points.
