Virginia holds Notre Dame to season-low 54 points

Virginia holds Notre Dame to season-low 54 points

On Saturday, Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim credited Farrell's mix of speed and outside shooting as the difference that finally got Notre Dame over the hump against his team. Notre Dame's.647 percentage from the line marked its lowest since hitting five of eight back on November 18 versus Loyola (Maryland). "You're going to have to move their defense and not get anything quick [offensively], and be patient defensively because they use a lot of that [shot] clock". Virginia is one of the best defensive teams in the nation, allowing just 53.2 points per game.

The former four-star prospect rated as the No. 13 offensive tackle and No. 193 overall player for the 2013 national recruiting class. Virginia offered the suburban Boston product a scholarship out of high school under then-coach Mike London. 5 U.Va.'s 77-66 home win against Notre Dame, the Cavaliers held the Fighting Irish to 24 points in the first half on the way to building a 12-point halftime lead and maintaining a comfortable cushion in the second half.

Nearing the halfway point of the ACC season, Notre Dame coach Mike Brey admitted there are whispers of a potential regular-season championship among the program, though he and his players maintained their focus is on the day-to-day process, which now means all eyes are on the 12th-ranked Cavaliers. Beachem is the most important offensive player for Notre Dame.

Notre Dame's 54 points qualified as nine fewer than it had scored in any other 2016-17 game.

Ty Jerome had his best game as a Cavalier, scoring eight points, all in the second half, on 3-of-4 shooting from the field and hitting on 2-of-3 from three-point range, to go with two assists in 14 minutes. "It was a good feeling to beat those two teams that kind of have had our number".

Irish sophomore Rex Pflueger drives towards the baseline during Notre Dame's 71-54 loss to Virginia on Tuesday at Purcell Pavilion. Bonzie Colson and Steve Vasturia are both averaging 15 points per game while Colson is also pulling down 10.9 rebounds per contest to lead the Irish.

Support could include help with trade deals, de-regulation and the creation of new institutions to develop skills or research. She said: "The modern industrial strategy will back Britain for the long-term".

The Irish struggled to find a foothold, however, as they had trouble getting the ball into the paint against the aggressive Virginia defense.

But the Irish didn't have an answer for Perrantes, who made five 3-pointers.

The Irish were off their efficient shooting game for much of the opening 20 minutes.

"It's the first time we've had our butts kicked, which is good", Brey said. It was always ran at their pace and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish could never get their offense going.

"I thought to try and help us offensively, we needed to go small", Brey said.

"I still think they're so fundamentally sound in what they do", Brey said. "I think it sets you up for really being able to have a heck of a practice on Thursday".
