UVA (4-2) is coming off a 98-75 beatdown at the hands of top-ranked Gonzaga on Saturday. Everything got exposed in that one, particularly the back end of the Pack Line defense, which gave up 29 shots at the rim, 21 of which the ‘Zags dropped in the hoop.

The 3-4 record for the Irish will fool you, but keep in mind, the losses for Notre Dame are: #17 Michigan State (80-70), #25 Ohio State (90-85), #20 Duke (75-65) and Purdue (88-78), which somehow isn’t ranked despite being 7-3.
