No.25 Notre Dame (20-7, 9-5 ACC) will try to extend their winning streak to four on Saturday when they travel to Raleigh, NC to take on the North Carolina State Wolfpack (14-13, 3-11 ACC). The Irish are coming in off an ugly win over Boston College on Tuesday. In that game the Irish came out flat in the first half, but turned it on in the second to cruise to a 84-76 victory.

On Wednesday NC State got waxed at home by North Carolina 97-73. NC State has been reeling, but they are a much better team than their record indicates. As we saw on Tuesday in Chestnut Hill, even the worst teams in the ACC can cause you some trouble and that won’t be any different on Saturday afternoon.

North Carolina State Wolfpack (14-13, 3-11)

After beating Duke in Durham on January 23rd it appeared NC State had their season headed in the right direction. Oh, but how can things change in this rough and tumble world of the ACC. Since then the Wolfpack have dropped six straight, and to second to last in the ACC standings.
