Notre Dame lost by a 67-59 final Saturday at home versus Virginia Tech to drop to 13-14 overall and 3-11 in the Atlantic Coast Conference. The Fighting Irish trailed 30-23 at halftime on their way to the defeat. Notre Dame shot 19-of-58 from the field, 6-of-26 on 3-pointers and 15-of-16 at the free throw line. T.J. Gibbs paced the Fighting Irish with 18 points on 5-of-17 shooting including 3-of-10 from 3-point distance plus 5-of-6 at the charity stripe. He also notched three steals and two rebounds. John Mooney tallied 12 points, 10 boards and two steals. Nate Laszewski added 12 points in 20 minutes off the bench.

Seminoles have win streak snapped

Florida State lost by a count of 77-59 at North Carolina Saturday afternoon to have its eight-game winning streak come to a close. The Seminoles (21-6, 9-5 ACC) were outscored 40-25 in the second half of the loss. Florida State shot 18-of-59 from the floor, 10-of-31 from 3-point distance and 13-of-16 at the free throw line. David Nichols led the Seminoles with 16 points off the bench on 4-of-10 shooting including 4-of-9 from 3-point range plus 4-of-6 at the free throw line.

College Basketball Betting Trends

Notre Dame

The Fighting Irish are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 road games. Notre Dame is 4-11 ATS in its last 15 ACC games.

Florida State

The Seminoles are 5-1 ATS in their last six games overall. Florida State is 1-5 ATS in its last six Monday games.


Two of the three losses in this Notre Dame skid were against quality opponents, but it also fell 75-68 at home against lowly Wake Forest. Any way you slice it, this is a dismal season for the Irish and it isn't likely to get better tonight against a Seminoles squad looking to bounce back from Saturday's loss. Florida State is ranked 14th nationally in adjusted defensive efficiency and I expect that defense to frustrate Notre Dame all game long as the hosts pull away.
