Notre Dame played the Duke Blue Devils pretty tough and left a lot out on the court (specifically free throws). The loss to the NC State Wolfpack, although heartbreaking, could have been a lesson well learned had the Irish pulled off the upset against Duke. Instead, it remains a season of growing pains for Notre Dame. They are growing... but there is still a lot of pain.
According to DraftKings Sportsbook, the Irish are a 6.5 point underdogs against the Yellow Jackets with an OVER/UNDER of 133.5.
GEORGIA TECH YELLOW JACKETS
Head Coach: Damon Stoudamire
Season Record: 8-6 (1-2 ACC)
Key Players: Miles Kelly G (14.9 ppg), Kowacie Reeves Jr. G (12.5 ppg), Baye Ndongo F (12.3 ppg)
Quick Overview: We could focus on the 8-6 record and the fact that the Yellow Jackets are on a three game losing streak... but those back-to-back wins over the Duke Blue Devils and Mississippi State Bulldogs stand out.
