Notre Dame vs. Virginia, 2/11/20 College Basketball Betting Predictions

John Mooney added another double-double for Notre Dame with 11 points and 14 rebounds. Braxton Key grabbed the rebound and threw the ball down court to run out the clock and secure the victory for Virginia.

Dating back to the first meeting at Florida State on January 15, Woldetensae has made exactly half (23 of 46) of his 3-point attempts, averaging 11 points a contest during that span. The Cavaliers rank 310th in the country with a free throw attempt (FTA) rate of 0.190, while Notre Dame ranks first in FTA rate allowed (0.134).

Virginia is 4-9 ATS at home with 8 unders and 5 overs.

Points at the line might be hard to find for Virginia in this battle. The Fighting Irish are also 5-0 against the number in their last five games overall, are 4-1 in their last five road games and are 4-1-1 ATS in their last six games when listed as a dog.

Shareholders liquidate regional carrier Air Italy
O'Brien said Air Italy , which has been placed into liquidation, did not have any interesting slots for the Irish budget carrier. The majority of the shares remained with the Italian Alisarda , which is owned by multimillionaire Karim Aga Khan IV.

However, with 9:51 remaining, Virginia finally tied the game at 38-38 after Huff knocked down a three-pointer. Notre Dame relied on its three-point shooting in the period, knocking down five shots to account for 15 of its 26 points.

Huff rode this momentum, converting a hook-shot to give the Cavaliers their first lead of the half and stepping up defensively on the Fighting Irish's next possession with a block.

Senior T.J. Gibbs (14.1 ppg), sophomore point guard Prentiss Hubb (11.8 ppg, 4.6 apg) and sophomore wing Dane Goodwin (11.5 ppg) have combined to hit 152 3-pointers on the season, and the 'Hoos will have to keep an eye on all three out on the perimeter.

However, costly turnovers by the Cavaliers enabled Notre Dame to fight back, as the Fighting Irish cut Virginia's lead to 45-44 in part due to two fast-break scores. They're making a league-best 10 triples a game and only turn the ball over an average of 9.9 times per contest. UVA is back in action Saturday evening when the Cavaliers visit North Carolina for an 8 p.m. tip-off.
