BY THE NUMBERS: 2021 GRADUATE CLASS
The career Notre Dame field goal percentage for graduate student forward Juwan Durham. That number would rank second among all Mike Brey era players with at least 400 FGA, behind Jack Cooley’s (2009-13) .601 and ahead of Zach Auguste’s (2012-16) .562.
Career blocks-per-game average at Notre Dame for Juwan Durham. He will finish his career third on the all-time career blocked shots list (behind Jordan Cornette and LaPhonso Ellis). He also joins Ellis and current assistant coach Ryan Humphrey as the only Notre Dame players to average over two blocks per game during their Irish careers.
The team-best nine-game double-figure scoring streak for Juwan Durham entering Saturday’s game, the highest for the Irish this season and best run in Durham’s career. He also has reached double figures in 12 of his last 14 games played.
Career-best minutes-played-per-game average for graduate student forward Nikola Djogo in 2020-21. Djogo is averaging a career-best 4.8 ppg and 3.2 rpg in his final year with the Irish.
Career high points scored in a game by both seniors being honored today – Nikola Djogo and Juwan Durham. Durham scored 21 at Cameron Indoor Stadium on Feb. 15, 2020, while Djogo’s career-best came at Conte Forum in a victory over Boston College on Feb. 2, 2019.
Shooting percentage increase for Nikola Djogo in his final year on the roster. Entering 2020-21 with a career .304 average, Djogo has become a clutch shot maker for Notre Dame and is shooting .530 this season.

BY THE NUMBERS: IRISH vs. SEMINOLES
So far this season, Notre Dame has seen eight scheduled games affected by COVID-19 safety guidelines enacted by the opposing team. Two games (at Pittsburgh Jan. 30, Syracuse, Feb. 20) were rescheduled while Notre Dame’s postponed home games with Georgia Tech (Jan. 6) and Clemson (Feb. 17) were eventually not provided a make up date and have been cancelled.
Florida State enters Saturday’s contest ranked 11th in both national polls. The Irish have not played a team ranked 11th since 2013 and are 5-4 against the nation’s Associated Press No. 11 team in the Mike Brey era.
Notre Dame and Florida State will be meeting for the 11th time on Saturday afternoon with the Seminoles holding a 6-4 advantage in the series. The last three meetings (all FSU wins) have been decided by an average of 2.6 points including Florida State’s first win in Purcell Pavilion last season 73-71.
Prentiss Hubb needs 15 more points to become the 65th Notre Dame player and 24th of the Mike Brey era to reach 1,000 points in a career. Should he reach 1,000 points this season, he would be the sixth player of the Brey era (that played all seasons for Coach Brey) to reach that plateau in his third season of action. See page 5 for more details.
Career assists for Prentiss Hubb, which ranks 10th all-time at Notre Dame entering Wednesday night’s game. Hubb is one of just 15 active players in the NCAA with 430 assists and 170 3FGM. Of those 15 players, Hubb joins UConn’s RJ Cole as the only two players who have accumulated those numbers in three years of competition (the other 13 players are either in their fourth or fifth season of competition).
Season-high attendance for the Irish against NC State on Wednesday night. The University is allowing student to attend the men’s basketball games free of charge with a limited capacity at approximately 400 tickets. NC State was the first game played under the new attendance regulations.
