Ball State at Notre Dame

Ball State basketball is not exactly a traditional power. The Fighting Irish were handed an 18-point loss by Michigan State on Thursday and then won by a similar margin Sunday when it registered a 71-53 win over St. Francis (N.Y.). This was Ball State's first win over Notre Dame in program history.

In order for the Cardinals to walk away with their first-ever victory against the Fighting Irish, they will need to continue their strong shooting trend. On their final possession of regulation, the Cardinals needed to score to stun No. 9 Notre Dame. The Fighting Irish have connected on 41.4 percent of their 3-point attempts.

Michigan State: Coach Suzy Merchant has work to do with her squad on both ends of the floor after Notre Dame shot 64 percent in the first half (16 of 25) while holding the Spartans to 18.8 percent (6 of 32). "It says we have a chance to be a good team, which I think is how we felt", Whitford said. "I thought at OR we had some stretches where we were better than we were against Oklahoma, but still, all-in-all, it wasn't a good performance for us".

The college football regular season may be over, but that doesn't mean we can't have some Tuesday night #MACtion for old time's sake.

NO. 10 MIAMI 69, BOSTON UNIVERSITY 54: Freshman Lonnie Walker IV scored a season-high 26 points, and Miami surged in the second half to beat Boston University. Senior guard Matt Farrell (15.9 average) and sophomore guard TJ Gibbs (14.3) join Colson as players scoring in double digits. "All the hard work, all the prayers, everything's paying off", Geben said in the postgame press conference after raising his season averages to 8.8 points and 5.5 rebounds.

Ball State, meanwhile, relies on a deep bench to provide breaks for its starting lineup. Junior center Trey Moses is rounding into shape from a hamstring injury and had 12 points on 5-of-5 shooting in the victory over IUPUI.

"I'm hoping we can play better, and we're more than capable of putting together the upset victory against anyone. You want playing time, obviously, but guys are out there competing every day in practice". Eight different BSU players have reached double figures during that stretch, while Tahjai Teague, Tayler Persons and Sean Sellers have scored double figures in all three. The game marked the first time Ball State (5-4) beat a Top 25 opponent since it knocked off No. 4 UCLA on November 20, 2001. Shepard scored 15 and 32 points as Nebraska and Michigan State split a pair of games.

Tuesday will be the first time Ball State plays a Top 25 opponent since December 20, 2014, when it faced No. 17 San Diego State.
