Florida State basketball makes history in bizarre win over Notre Dame

The ‘Noles become the only team in College Basketball since 2010 to win when this anomaly happens.

Florida State basketball did something no other team has been able to accomplish in the past seven years during its 83-80 victory over Notre Dame.

Notre Dame fired up 21 three-point shots in the loss and made 15 of those attempts. The 71.4% fell just short of its school record 72.7% against Loyola in 2000. The Irish won that game 107-68.

Since 2010, there had been 18 different teams to make 15 or more three-pointers while shooting 70% or higher from beyond the arc. On Wednesday night, Notre Dame became the 19th — and the only one of those teams to lose.

Notre Dame knocked down 66.7% (6-9) of its attempts in the first half while shooting an even better 75% (9-12) in the closing half. While shooting 15-21 from long range, Notre Dame shot just 12-37 (32.4%) on two-point shots.

On the flip side, Florida State shot 7-17 (41.2%) from downtown and 23-43 (53.4%) on two-pointers.
