Notre Dame announced that junior Zach Auguste will play in Saturday's game against Miami at Purcell Pavilion in South Bend, Ind.

Auguste missed Wednesday's win over Georgia Tech while dealing with an academic issue.

Over 17 games this season, Auguste averaged 14.3 points and 6.4 rebounds while shooting 65.3 percent from the field.

The 6-foot-10 forward is the only frontcourt player on Notre Dame's roster averaging more than 10 points per game.

The No. 12 Irish, picked to finish seventh in the ACC in a preseason media poll, had won 11 consecutive games prior to last Saturday's loss against Virginia.
