Back on the road

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have had some tough losses during the six-game homestand, and now they go on the road in ACC play to take on the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.

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.

ODDS

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.
