SOUTH BEND, Ind. - It's likely the toughest stretch Notre Dame men's basketball will face all season long.
The Irish play four top-20 teams in five games, and after a 77-73 home loss to No. 17 North Carolina State, they've fallen in two of those matchups already.
It was a familiar script at Purcell Pavilion, as the young Irish roster hung tough for the majority of the game before ultimately coming up a couple plays shy of the win.
