Notre Dame @ Georgia Tech

Current Records: Notre Dame 8-5; Georgia Tech 6-7

What to Know

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets are set to square off in an ACC matchup at 6 p.m. ET Jan. 8 at McCamish Pavilion. Notre Dame should still be feeling good after a win, while Georgia Tech will be looking to get back in the win column.

Even if it wasn't a dominant performance, the Fighting Irish beat the North Carolina Tar Heels 78-73 on Wednesday. Four players on Notre Dame scored in the double digits: forward Nate Laszewski (20), guard Blake Wesley (18), guard Dane Goodwin (17), and guard Cormac Ryan (11).

Meanwhile, the game between Georgia Tech and the Duke Blue Devils on Tuesday was not a total blowout, but with Georgia Tech falling 69-57 on the road, it was darn close to turning into one. The losing side was boosted by guard Michael Devoe, who had 21 points along with seven rebounds.

Barring any buzzer beaters, Notre Dame is expected to win a tight contest Saturday. Those who got lucky with them against the spread on Wednesday might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the squad has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.

Georgia Tech's loss took them down to 6-7 while Notre Dame's victory pulled them up to 8-5. In Notre Dame's victory, Nate Laszewski shot 6-for-7 from beyond the arc and finished with 20 points and eight boards and Dane Goodwin had 17 points. We'll see if the Yellow Jackets have a strategy for dealing with them or if they lead their team to another successful outing.
