The Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Miami Hurricanes will both be gunning for a victory on Thursday when they meet at BankUnited Center.

ABOUT NOTRE DAME (14-2, 3-0 ACC): With a starting five that includes two seniors and three juniors, the Irish are one of the nation’s most efficient offensive teams, ranking No. 1 in the nation in assist-to-turnover ratio (1.89) and free-throw shooting (84 percent) and No. 17 in 3-point field-goal percentage (40.2) percent while averaging 82.3 points. Guards Steve Vasturia (15.0 points), the much-improved Matt Farrell (14.0, team-leading 5.4 assists) and forward VJ Beachem (14.6), who is coming off a 22-point game against Clemson, have combined to hit 102 shots from beyond the arc to fuel the high-octane offense and open up the lane for forward Bonzie Colson. The senior leads the Irish in scoring (16.4) while ranking No. 9 in the country in rebounding (10.8).

ABOUT MIAMI (11-3, 1-1): Miami’s offense, and leading scorers Ja’Quan Newton (15.2 points, 4.1 assists) and Davon Reed (14.0) in particular, had trouble finding open shots against the Orange with the junior point guard shooting 3-of-12 while turning the ball over four times and the senior going 2-of-11. The one bright spot in the loss was freshman D.J. Vasiljevic, Miami’s 3-point specialist, who came off the bench to shoot 6-of-12 from long distance on his way to scoring a career-high 18 points. The Hurricanes, who usually have a big edge at the foul line because of their ability to limit their foes’ attempts, have suddenly gone ice cold, hitting only 50 percent of their free-throw attempts over the past three games, including their woeful 20 percent performance against the Orange.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Hurricanes listed as 4.5-point favorites versus the Fighting Irish, while the game’s total is sitting at 139 according to MyBookie-White logo -70x40.

Notre Dame attempts to start 4-0 in conference play for the first time in program history when the No. 20 Fighting Irish visit Miami on Thursday night. Notre Dame, which is coming off a home victory against Clemson, is 3-0 for the second time as a member of the ACC but never started with four straight league wins in the ACC or during their time in the Big East.

Notre Dame needed strong finishes in all three ACC victories, outscoring their foes 25-6 in the final combined 6:42 to defeat Pittsburgh (78-77 in overtime), No. 15 Louisville (77-70) and Clemson (75-70). “We know how to finish and we know how to take people’s hearts,” Irish coach Mike Brey told reporters after the victory over the Tigers. “We have had three physically and emotionally demanding wins. We’ve put ourselves in great position. Now we go into road dog mode. I’m excited to go on the road with these guys because they are winners.” The Hurricanes, who have won 21 games in a row at home, play for the first time in eight days after struggling on both ends of the floor in a 70-55 loss at Syracuse that ended a seven-game winning streak. The Hurricanes shot 38.9 percent from the field and made 2-of-10 foul shots while the Orange hit a sizzling 56.8 percent against a Miami team that ranked No. 16 in Division I in field-goal percentage defense (38.4) through Tuesday’s games.

Last time out for Miami, they were a 70-55 loser as they battled Orange on the road. They failed to cover in the match as a -2.5-point favorite.

Notre Dame was a 75-70 winner in their most recent outing at home against Tigers. They covered the -4-point spread as favorites.
