LOS ANGELES, CA, Sporting Alert – A total of 10 NCAA college basketball games will be streaming live on ESPN3 on Thursday night, January 7.
The midweek schedule will tip-off at 7:00 p.m. ET with four games, including the battle between Notre Dame against Boston College at Silvio Conte Forum in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts.

The matchup involving Notre Dame and Boston College will see two ACC sides looking for their first conference victory of the season.
The Eagles (7-7) were beaten 81-64 by Duke in their ACC conference opener, which snapped their four-game winning streak, while the Fighting Irish (9-4) were turned back 77-66 by Virginia in their league opening game.
Notre Dame which is scoring 78.1 points per game and allowing 68.4 on defense, comes into this game with a 1-1 record on the road, while Boston College which is putting up 67.2 per game and allowing 66.3, is 6-3 at home this season.
This for sure should be a close matchup, with the Fighting Irish shooting 49.5 percent from the floor and Boston doing 43.3 percent.
