After a 30-point loss to the Duke Blue Devils on February 7th, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish dusted themselves off and got back to their winning ways, knocking off the Clemson Tigers and the Wake Forest Demon Deacons in back-to-back games. They’ve held their second place spot in the ACC standings, sitting behind Virginia (24-1, 12-1) by one and a half games.
The Fighting Irish have four ACC games remaining before the ACC tournament. They play the Boston College Eagles and the Louisville Cardinals on the road and host the Syracuse Orange and Clemson Tigers at Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center. Notre Dame defeated Boston College at home by eight points and scored a road victory against Clemson by two points.
After struggling against Duke with a seven point effort, Jerian Grant has rebounded and performed admirably in the two Notre Dame victories. Grant had 22 points with five assists and three steals against Clemson and netted 24 points with 10 assists and five steals against Boston College.
Notre Dame basketball tickets are available through ScoreBig.com for the remaining games on the Notre Dame schedule. The highest ticket average price for one of the four remaining games is $122.20 with a get-in price of $63 on March 7th when Clemson visits Notre Dame for their last game of the ACC regular season. There are fewer than 400 tickets remaining for this event. The second highest average ticket price is $73.54 with a walk-in price of $18 when the Fighting Irish travel to Boston College on February 21st.
It’ll be tough for Notre Dame to overtake Virginia at the top of the conference standings during these last few weeks but a top two finish will assure them a bye during the ACC tournament. Notre Dame should be well-rested and can work their way to get another crack at one or two teams that are ranked in the top-10 in the country.
