05 March, 2017, 01:15 | Author: Felix Jensen

Louisville's basketball players hoped to be in contention for a share of their first Atlantic Coast Conference championship since joining the league three years ago when they meet Notre Dame Saturday afternoon.

Notre Dame opens the 2018 season with three consecutive home games - MI on September 1, Ball State on September 8, and Vanderbilt, a newly scheduled game, on September 15.

The eighth-ranked Seminoles (25-5) placed forward Shakayla Thomas and guard Leticia Romero on the first team.

A low shooting percentage game to start, both teams combined to shoot 6-of-23 in the opening nine minutes.

While the 2003 contest is the victory in the series that FSU fans seem to like best, the most memorable contest came in 1993 when No. 2 Notre Dame upset the top-ranked Seminoles, 31-24.

Notre Dame will travel to face the Bulldogs at Sanford Stadium in Athens in the second and final game of the home-and-home series on September 21, 2019.

Playing in his final home game on Senior Night, Beachem scored 22 points to lead the Irish to an 82-66 victory over Boston College.

-Louisville is 15th in the nation in field goal defense (.391), 10th in blocked shots (5.6 bpg), 16th in three-point field goal percentage defense (.304), 14th in scoring margin (+13.0) and 14th in offensive rebounds per game (13.4). The Cardinals also coughed up the ball 10 times while the Irish had just two turnovers. The Irish continued their second-half dominance with goals from sophomore Nikki Ortega and freshman Erin McBride.

To open the second half, Notre Dame started on an 8-2 run to take a 36-32 lead.

Notre Dame trailed by eight with 4:27 remaining. Louisville is averaging 77.8 points per game on offense while allowing 65.4 on defense.

University of Georgia officials announced Thursday that Georgia's 2017 football game against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish on September 9 will be a 7:30 p.m. kickoff and be televised on NBC and 11Alive. Notre Dame will close out the regular season on Saturday on the road at #8 Louisville.

UofL Coach Rick Pitino has a 14-11 career record against Notre Dame (8-8 at Louisville, 6-1 at Kentucky, 0-1 at Providence, 0-1 at Boston U.).
