Notre Dame Men's Basketball Postgame Notes
Virginia 68, Notre Dame 53
January 28, 2014
Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center • Notre Dame, Ind.

• This was the sixth meeting all-time between Notre Dame and Virginia and the first since an 81-76 Cavalier victory during the title game of the 1992 Postseason NIT in New York City ... Virginia leads the series 6-1 ... this was the Cavaliers' second-ever trip to Notre Dame ... Virginia topped Notre Dame 68-67 on Jan. 26, 1991, inside the Joyce Center.

Eric Atkins (Sr./G), Pat Connaughton (Jr./G), Steve Vasturia (Fr./G), Zach Auguste (So./F) and Garrick Sherman (Sr./C) started tonight's contest ... this was Notre Dame's eighth different starting lineup this season ... the Irish have used four different starting lineups in the last five games ... Atkins, Connaughton and Sherman have started all 21 games this season ... it was the fifth start of the season for Auguste and the second for Vasturia.

• Notre Dame trailed 34-24 at halftime ... the Irish are 2-9 this season when trailing at the intermission.

• The Irish held a 30-26 rebound edge ... Notre Dame is 8-3 this season when outrebounding its opponent (all three losses have been in the last three games).

• Notre Dame committed a season-high 20 turnovers (previous high was 17 at Maryland).

• Notre Dame is 4-3 this season when wearing gold uniforms.

• A three-pointer from Steve Vasturia in the first half upped Notre Dame's streak of consecutive games with a made three-pointer to 498.

Zach Auguste (So./F) • Scored in double-figures (10 points) for the fourth time this season (first in ACC play) and the sixth time of his career. • Notched a career-high four steals.

Demetrius Jackson (Fr./G) • Scored in double-figures (10 points) for the sixth time this season (second in ACC play).
