Current Records: Notre Dame 10-6; Howard 6-7

What to Know

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish's road trip will continue as they head to Burr Arena at 2:30 p.m. ET Monday to face off against the Howard Bison. Given that these two teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this matchup.

The Fighting Irish were within striking distance but couldn't close the gap this past Saturday as they fell 79-73 to the Virginia Tech Hokies. The losing side was boosted by forward Paul Atkinson, who had 19 points along with nine rebounds.

Meanwhile, it was close but no cigar for Howard as they fell 77-74 to the Norfolk State Spartans this past Saturday.

Notre Dame is the favorite in this one, with an expected 11-point margin of victory. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a four-game streak of ATS wins.

The losses put Notre Dame at 10-6 and Howard at 6-7. Two stats to keep an eye on: Notre Dame comes into the game boasting the 21st fewest turnovers per game in college basketball at 10.2. But the Bison rank 15th in college basketball when it comes to takeaways, with 17.8 on average. These opposing strengths should make for an exciting matchup.
