No. 14 UNC whips Notre Dame for third win in five days

No. 14 UNC whips Notre Dame for third win in five days

No. 14 North Carolina 83, Notre Dame 66. The sophomore guard, who had one point on one shot against Florida State, went 5 of 5 from the field in the first half, with all five shots coming from beyond the arc. North Carolina is coming off back to back wins over Duke and North Carolina State.

The North Carolina-Notre Dame basketball game will be streaming on WatchESPN. Matt Farrell has battled injuries but is back and averaging 16.5 points and 5.2 assists per games to lead the team while TJ Gibbs is adding 16.3 points per contest.

As mentioned before, UNC is hoping to make it four-straight wins before they enter the final stretch of the season.

The Tar Heels are one of the top scoring teams in College Basketball.

UNC will have a nice break before playing Louisville on Saturday night but they can't look ahead to the Cardinals.

A four-game winning streak later, the offense is cooking at the level expected in Chapel Hill, with the Tar Heels rising to ninth nationally in offensive efficiency while pushing the pace to 40th and averaging 87 points over the three-game stretch.

The Tar Heels got out and pushed and exposed the Irish's transition defense just like they did in the first half.

That may have been the case during a second half in which the Tar Heels shot 56.7 percent from the floor and turned the ball over only twice.

Now the model has simulated Notre Dame vs. "We just went out there and tried to play as hard as we could".

The senior missed the home game against UNC in the first meeting but returns for this one on Monday.

Limit Transition Baskets - Roy Williams coached teams are known for getting out in transition and looking to score easy baskets.


On the other side - the Fighting Irish are seeking their third straight win.

Prior to that, Farrell 16 against NC State and 19 against Boston College. T.J. Gibbs added 10 points despite 1-for-9 shooting from the field.

Both UNC and the Irish have been quite busy in ACC play in the past week.

Notre Dame: The Fighting Irish have been just trying to stay afloat with preseason Associated Press All-American Bonzie Colson sidelined with a broken foot since late December. That's a big number, especially against a UNC team that is usually really good at rebounding. The game starts at 7 p.m. ET on Monday, February 12, 2018, and will air on ESPN.

The freshman center will need to lock down on the defensive end and be good on the boards. Berry drove to the hoop and laid the ball in with his left hand to put his team in front 80-63 with two minutes left, essentially putting the game on ice.

No. 78 Graham continued her unbelievable play with another straight set win, 6-4, 6-3, over No. 75 Laure Gulbe on court four.

Big men like Brooks and Sterling Manley should give the Tar Heels some valuable minutes on Monday night.

It was a wild game that UNC could have very easily lost.

During their last five games, the Tar Heels have scored an average of 88.6 points per game (5.3 above their season average) and allowed an average of 81.8 points per game (8.2 above their season average).

After going 6 for 6 from 3-point range en route to a team-leading 18 points, the free throws figured to be money in the bank for Mooney. "And maybe we get Bonz back here. and we go to Brooklyn with him healthy and see if we can play our way in (to the NCAA Tournament)". Joel Berry is second on the Tar Heels with just over 17 per game.
