Notre Dame comes into the midweek tilt off an 82-67 victory at UConn to break from conference play. The Fighting Irish dropped their last ACC game against Syracuse, falling, 79-65. Despite the loss, ND has won five of its last six outings. On the road, the Fighting Irish are 3-1. Hannah Hidalgo leads the team and conference in scoring, averaging 24.4 points per game.
