What to Know

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish haven't won a game against the NC State Wolfpack since Jan. 3 of 2018, but they'll be looking to end the drought on Wednesday. Notre Dame and NC State will face off in an ACC battle at 9 p.m. ET at Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center. The Fighting Irish are out to keep their seven-game home win streak alive.

While not quite a landslide, the contest between Notre Dame and the Louisville Cardinals on Saturday was still a pretty decisive one as Notre Dame wrapped it up with an 82-70 win on the road. Notre Dame got double-digit scores from four players: guard Blake Wesley (22), guard Dane Goodwin (13), forward Paul Atkinson (13), and guard Prentiss Hubb (12).

Meanwhile, the Wolfpack strolled past the Virginia Cavaliers with points to spare on Saturday, taking the matchup 77-63. NC State's success was spearheaded by the efforts of guard Terquavion Smith, who had 20 points, and forward Jericole Hellems, who shot 5-for-9 from beyond the arc and finished with 21 points.

The wins brought the Fighting Irish up to 12-6 and NC State to 10-10. Two stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Notre Dame is stumbling into the game with the 25th fewest takeaways in college basketball, having accrued only 10.9 on average. To make matters even worse for Notre Dame, the Wolfpack come into the contest boasting the 17th fewest turnovers per game in college basketball at 10.2. Maybe that strength will give NC State the oomph they need to beat the odds.
