Notre Dame Beats Boston College, 82-66

The top challengers in the league - Notre Dame, Louisville and Florida State among them - caught a break Monday when Virginia kept the Tar Heels from clinching the ACC outright, although North Carolina still could do so with a home win over Duke on Saturday night.

The 10-player first team was announced Tuesday following a vote of school representatives and media members. ND is putting up 79 points per game on offense this season while allowing 69.2 on defense.

The Irish improve to 23-7 overall and 12-5 in the Atlantic Coast Conference. State took the lead late on a 3-pointer by redshirt senior guard Dominique Wilson put the Pack ahead 58-57, but with 19 seconds left Hines-Allen knocked down two free throws to reclaim the lead. Notre Dame is playing well right now and should have confidence to give Louisville a game today. Louisville made just 10 first half field goals, shot just 34 percent.

The eighth-seeded Cavaliers (19-12) couldn't get closer than six the rest of the game. The Cardinals came in to that one 6th in the nation in blocked shots at 6.6 per game, and finished with seven, six of them from center Anas Mahmoud.

- Eagles G Jerome Robinson entered Wednesday with a league-best 17 games of scoring at least 20 points, but he was limited to nine against the Irish.

Notre Dame trailed by eight with 4:27 remaining.

Road games for the Fighting Irish in 2018 include Wake Forest (Sept. 22), Virginia Tech (Oct. 6), Northwestern (Nov. 3), and USC (Nov. 24). Asia Durr scored a game-high 31 points in that one. Deng Adel's 3-pointer with 37 seconds left, just his second field goal of the game, sealed the victory for the Cards. Although it was sloppy from the beginning, the Irish claiming an early advantage looked to be a promising start to this final regular season showdown.

The top-seeded Irish will face third-seeded Duke, a 57-52 victor over Miami, on March 5 for the ACC crown.
