Fighting Irish Athletics | January 19, 2016
This was a matchup of two of Division I's most efficient offenses, with the Irish ranking second and the Blue Devils fourth in Ken Pomery's adjusted offensive efficiency ratings. Notre Dame shot 50 percent - almost exactly what they arrived shooting as a team - while Duke finished at almost 52 percent. ''We executed on offense, but defensively, we just didn't execute,'' Kennard said. ''We didn't keep the ball out of the paint. We didn't rebound very well. Defensively, we've just got to pick it up a little bit.''
