    OUCH

    SOUTH BEND, Ind. — De’Andre Hunter scored 19 points to lead five players in double figures as No. 3 Virginia routed Notre Dame 82-55 rout on Saturday.

    Junior guard Kyle Guy, Indiana’s 2016 Mr. Basketball at Lawrence Central near Indianapolis, scored 15 points, all in the first half on 6-of-8 shooting. The Cavaliers (18-1, 6-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) earned their second straight victory since a 72-70 loss at Duke on Jan. 19.

    Ty Jerome had 13 points, Kihei Clark 12 and Mamadi Diakite 10 for Virginia, which shot 52.2 from the field, including 44.4 percent on 8 of 18 3-pointers. The Cavaliers dominated the boards 45-33 and made just two turnovers.

    John Mooney had his ACC-leading 12th double-double of the season with 15 points and 10 rebounds for struggling Notre Dame (11-9), which dropped its fourth in a row and fell deeper into the ACC cellar at 1-6.

    Virginia began with a 12-0 run as Notre Dame missed its first nine shots before Mooney’s layup with 13:36 left. The Cavaliers, who hit 16 of their first 26 shots and had just one turnover in the first 20 minutes. They built a 20-point lead, 37-17, on a jumper by Hunter, who had 10 points, with 2:32 left. It was 42-25 at halftime on Guy’s third 3-pointer and 15th point.

    An 11-4 Irish run to start the second half, highlighted by two Mooney 3-pointers and one by D.J. Harvey, closed the Virginia lead to 54-42. Cavaliers coach Tony Bennett called a 30-second timeout with 13:24 to go, and a 14-3 run afterward put them ahead 68-45 with 7:09 left. That sent many of the sellout crowd of 9,149 at the Purcell Pavilion out early into the chilly northern Indiana weather.

    BIG PICTURE

    Virginia: The Cavaliers have held 16 of their opponents under 60 points and 11 of those to 52 or fewer points. Offensively, they were 47.8 percent from the field (second best in the Bennett era), 39.4 on 3-pointers (second best in school history) and 77.2 percent at the free-throw line (best in school history) coming into the game.

    Notre Dame: Fighting Irish had been competitive in their last three league losses before late cold spells doomed them in losses to then-No. 13 North Carolina, No. 17 NC State and Georgia Tech. Virginia’s helping man-to-man defense limited the Irish to 10-of-27 shooting (37 percent) in the first half.

    Proud of ND for competing. They went into Charlottesville & almost pulled off an upset of the best defensive team in the nation. Even good ND teams have struggled w/ Tony Bennett’s Cav teams. The Irish still lack a consistent shooter but they haven’t completely mailed it in & give hope for next season. A loss is a loss but this was not the embarrassing blowout at home from a few weeks ago.

    ND came out hot but went cold in the second half as they fall to the Demon Deacons for WF’s first road win of the season.

    SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) Brandon Childress scored 20 points as Wake Forest pulled away from Notre Dame late for a 75-68 victory Tuesday.

    Childress scored 15 of the points on 5-of-7 shooting from beyond the 3-point line as Wake Forest (10-15, 3-10 Atlantic Coast Conference) used a 9-2 run in the final minutes to pull away from Notre Dame (13-13, 3-10). Olivier Sarr had 14 points on 6-of-8 shooting and Jaylen Hoard scored 10, including a layup with 2:41 left that broke a 66-66 tie. The victory was the Demon Deacons second in their last nine games.

    T.J. Gibbs scored a game-high 23 points on 8-of-12 shooting but had only six after halftime for Notre Dame, which lost its second straight. John Mooney had 16 points and nine rebounds and Prentiss Hubb added 11 for the Fighting Irish.

    Both teams had hot shooting hands at the start of the first half that ended with Notre Dame up 36-35, and no one was hotter than Gibbs, who hit his first three shots, three of them beyond the arc, for 17 points. He finished the half 6-of-7 from the field, including 3-of-4 from beyond the 3-point line.

    The Irish built their biggest lead, 36-29, on Mooney's 3-pointer with 3:39 but Notre Dame went cold, missing its final five shots. The Demon Deacons finished on a 6-0 run as Childress had nine and Brown eight.

    Gibbs went almost 12 minutes between shot attempts, finally hitting a jumper with 15:05 left in the second half that put the Irish lead back to four, 47-43. But a 3-pointer by Wake's Sharone Weight Jr. tied the game at 48-48 with 13:23 to go.

    The Irish would go without a field goal for 5:02 before Mooney's layup and free throw put Notre Dame up 51-50 with 10:33. But Wake Forest responded with a 7-2 run, the last five on a Childress 3-pointer and a Wright layup after an Irish turnover for a 57-53 lead with 8:42 left when Notre Dame took a timeout.

    Wake Forest pulled away to a 66-57 lead with 5:45 left on a pair of free throws by Torry Johnson as Notre Dame made only three field goals, all by Mooney, in a span of 8:28. But the Irish tied it to 66-66 with 2:56 left on a 9-0 run fueled by Mooney and Gibbs.

    BIG PICTURE

    Wake Forest: The Demon Deacons shot 53.8 percent (14 of 26) in the first half after starting 8 of 12. At one point, the two teams were a combined 68 percent (15 of 22) from the floor. Childress and Sarr were a combined 6-for-6 shooting, including 4-of-4 from beyond the arc, for 16 points, and the Deacons had 12 assists (four by Childress) on their 14 first-half field goals.

    Notre Dame: Gibbs, who had only two points on 1-of-9 shooting in a 62-47 loss at Miami on Feb. 6, has been on fire of late. He scored 18 of his team-high 20 points in the second half of Notre Dame's 69-59 victory over Georgia Tech on Feb. 10 and led the Irish in their 60-54 loss at No. 3 Virginia with 17 points, a total he matched in the first 20 minutes against Wake Forest.

    We rank 342nd out of 351 teams for field goal percentage at 38.9%

    I was told there would be no math in this thread but I believe that is not a good number.

    Basketball can be an ugly sport to watch when a team can't shoot. Especially when that team is the one would would like to see win.

    Don't watch a lot of college basketball, but the best three point shooting team I've seen this year by far is Virginia.
