Irish snap losing streak with win over Boston College

NOW: Irish snap losing streak with win over Boston College

NOTRE DAME, Ind. - Mike Brey said last week that he hoped karma would turn for the Notre Dame men's hoops as the calendar flipped to February.

That was not the case to start the month, as the loss to North Carolina State extended the Irish losing streak to seven. However, things finally changed for the Irish with a 96-85 victory over Boston College on Tuesday.

“It felt so good," said sophomore guard T.J. Gibbs, who led the Irish with 22 first-half points en route to a career-high 28. "It’s just great to get after it again. Can’t wait for Saturday now. We just gotta keep it going one game at a time and keep things rolling.”

That matchup on Saturday will bring another talented ACC opponent to Purcell Pavilion as the Irish square off with Florida State. Despite the tough game ahead, captain Matt Farrell said the group just wanted a win to start building again.

“We’ve had some tough losses, with really close games," said Farrell, who added 19 points and seven assists. "Games we think we should’ve won, but sometimes that’s basketball. You gotta take the punches and that’s what we’re doing. We’re not going to back down. We’re going to keep fighting and keep inching our way.”

Not only did the Irish snap their losing streak, but they also finally broke through on the offensive side. In addition to Gibbs and Farrell, John Mooney and Martinas Geben both tallied 16 points apiece, with Geben completing a double-double for the third time this season.

Notre Dame's game with Florida State is set for a 2 p.m. tip on Saturday.
