By The Numbers

Author: Daniel Paglia


13 - The number of double-doubles that junior forward John Mooney has tallied in the first 22 games of the season. Mooney leads the ACC in double-doubles and averages 10.8 rebounds and 14.4 points per game. He is currently shooting an impressive 44.7 percent from three, an impressive mark for anyone and especially a 6-foot-9 forward/center. Mooney has been a key contributor in the Fighting Irish’s 12-10 start.


25.7 - The number of points Arike Ogunbowale has averaged against AP Top 25 opponents this year in six games. Ogunbowale steps up in big games, and this trend has continued as the Fighting Irish already have five wins over top-25 teams, including two top-10 wins en route to a 20-2 start.


0 - The number of losses the Notre Dame fencing team had at the Elite Invitational at Ohio State. Both the men and women posted impressive 5-0 marks against solid competition including wins over Ohio State, Penn and Princeton. The Fighting Irish continue to defend their national championship — and maintain a No. 1 national ranking — and have seen impressive victories from young talent as well, including freshmen Kara Linder and Alessandro Contreras.


.928 - Cale Morris’ save percentage in the season thus far which slots in as the 11th-best mark in the country. The reigning Mike Richter Award winner for the nation’s best goaltender has led the Fighting Irish to a 12-8-1 record. The team features many young players and looks to finish strong in conference play before beginning the journey back to the Frozen Four.
