Notable: Notre Dame was humbled by two tough losses last week to regional powers Mount Zion and Blue Ridge. In the 84-72 loss to Blue Ridge, senior guard Bobby Weismiller scored 13 points to give him 2,001 for his career. But his satisfaction was tempered as Weismiller was forced from the game with a pulled rib cage muscle, which will keep him out for two to four weeks.
