The fans at Joyce Center will be treated to a game between the Duke Blue Devils and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish when they take their seats on Monday.

ABOUT DUKE (16-5, 4-4 ACC): Kennard’s 34 points was one shy of his career high and pushed his team-leading average to 20.4, while he is draining 54.4 percent from the field – including 16-of-23 the last two games. Allen hit 6-of-11 from 3-point range on Saturday after making just five of his 24 attempts the previous five contests and is third on the team in scoring (15.3) behind freshman forward Jayson Tatum (15.8). Senior forward Amile Jefferson (12.2 points) leads the way in rebounding (9.5) and is connecting on 62 percent from the field, which leads the conference.

ABOUT NOTRE DAME (17-5, 6-3): Beachem, a senior forward, has produced two of his best performances of the season in the last three games – sandwiching a three-point effort in a loss to Virginia on Tuesday. Beachem (14.5 points) also scored a career-high 30 in the win over Syracuse on Jan. 21 and is one of four players averaging at least 14 points – a feat the Irish last accomplished for an entire season in 2001-02. Forward Bonzie Colson leads the team in scoring (15.5) and tops the ACC in rebounding (10.6) while guards Steve Vasturia (14.5 points) and Matt Farrell (14.0) also contribute.

Bovada Sportsbook currently has the Blue Devils listed as -1½-point favorites versus the Fighting Irish, while the game’s total is sitting at 153 according to GTBETS.

In their last action, Notre Dame was a 62-60 loser on the road against Yellow Jackets. They failed to cover the -7-point spread as favorites.

Duke won its last outing, a 85-83 result against Demon Deacons on January 28. They failed to cover in that game as a -6.5-point favorite.

No. 17 Duke showed signs of life last time out in a thrilling come-from-behind victory and looks to build off that when it travels to 12th-ranked Notre Dame on Monday for an important ACC clash. The Blue Devils had lost three of four and trailed by 10 points with four minutes to play at Wake Forest on Saturday before sophomore Luke Kennard led the way back for an 85-83 triumph.

“As a team, we’ve just got to keep going,” Duke’s junior guard Grayson Allen, who had 19 points, told reporters. “We’re a group of talented guys and we’re good, but we’ve got to come together and be a good team. It’s having that belief, and I think we showed that belief.” Kennard finished with 34 points, making all six of his 3-point attempts, and will need another big night against a Notre Dame team that will be determined after losing three of the last four. The Fighting Irish received 23 points, including the 1,000th of his career, from V.J. Beachem before Georgia Tech scored at the buzzer for a 62-60 win on Saturday. “We usually make plays down the stretch,” Beachem told reporters after the setback. “(Saturday) the other team made them.”
