What to Know

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. Notre Dame and the Pittsburgh Panthers will face off in an ACC battle at 8 p.m. ET on Tuesday at Petersen Events Center. Both teams seek to continue their momentum from their previous wins.

The Fighting Irish were able to grind out a solid victory over the Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Islanders last Wednesday, winning 83-73. Notre Dame's guard Dane Goodwin looked sharp as he shot 5-for-7 from beyond the arc and finished with 21 points and six boards.

Meanwhile, the Jacksonville Dolphins typically have all the answers at home, but last week Pitt proved too difficult a challenge. Pitt walked away with a 64-55 win. Guard Femi Odukale took over for Pitt, finishing with 28 points (a whopping 44% of their total). Odukale's performance made up for a slower game against the St. John's Red Storm two weeks ago. Odukale's points were the most he has had all year.

The Fighting Irish are the favorite in this one, with an expected 4-point margin of victory. But bettors beware: they are only 2-5 against the spread when favored.

The wins brought Notre Dame up to 6-5 and the Panthers to 5-7. A couple stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Notre Dame is 45th worst in college basketball in takeaways, with only 11.5 on average. Pitts have had an even harder time: they are stumbling into the contest with the fourth fewest takeaways in college basketball, having accrued only 10.3 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
