The Fighting Irish bring in an offense that is averaging 78.6 points per game, while the team is averaging 68.6 points per game. That offense showcases five players who are averaging 10 points per game or more.

Leading the way is junior Demetrius Jackson, who leads the Irish with 17.1 points per game, while shooting 50.5 percent from the floor (42.6 percent from three). He also leads the team (by a wide margin) in assists with 5.3 per game. Jackson also leads the team in steals with 20.

The Irish also feature two more players that are good with points and rebounds. First up is senior Zach Auguste, who is averaging 13.3 points per game and 9.5 rebounds per game (102 of his 143 rebounds are on defense).
