The Notre Dame Fighting Irish men's basketball team is the intercollegiate men's basketball program representing the University of Notre Dame in Notre Dame, Indiana, United States. The program competes in the Atlantic Coast Conference of NCAA Division I. On September 12, 2012, Notre Dame announced they would be moving to the Atlantic Coast Conference; they joined the conference on July 1, 2013. The school holds two retroactively awarded national championships in basketball from the Helms Foundation: for the 1927 (19–1 overall record) and 1936 (22–2–1 overall record) seasons. [2] They have also played in the NCAA Tournament 36 times, good for 9th all time, [3] and reached the Final Four in 1978. The Irish hold the record for most Tournament appearances without a championship or championship game appearance, one of five teams (along with Texas, Temple, Illinois and Oklahoma) to have 30 or more appearances without a title and one of three teams (along with Texas and Temple) to have more than 30 appearances without either. They are also the first Big East team to go undefeated at home two straight seasons. [4] They play their home games in the Purcell Pavilion at the Edmund P. Joyce Center. Since moving to the Purcell Pavilion in 1968, they have had 44 winning seasons at the Purcell Pavilion, including 5 undefeated seasons at home (1973, 1985, 2006, 2007, and 2010) and have had only 4 losing seasons at the Purcell Pavilion (1971, 1981, 1992, and 1995). Jeff Sagarin and ESPN listed the program 12th in the college basketball all-time rankings in the ESPN College Basketball Encyclopedia. [5] The Fighting Irish are currently coached by Mike Brey.

The wins include several wins over the defending NCAA Tournament Champion. Both wins over UCLA were in seasons immediately following UCLA claiming the NCAA Championship with the 1971 win coming over a team that would be the eventual tournament champion. The 1954 win in the NCAA tournament over Indiana prevented IU from back-to-back national titles after claiming the 1953 NCAA Tournament Title. The 1978 win over Marquette was another instance of the Irish defeating the defending national champion. The 1948 win over Kentucky saw the Irish defeat the eventual Tournament champion who would go on to win both the 1948 and 1949 titles. The 1948 win over NYU was a victory over the eventual NIT runner-up, in a time where the prestige of the NIT tournament rivaled that of the NCAA tournament. [23]

Also of note is that the 2005 win over Boston College and the 2012 win over Syracuse saw 20–0 teams traveling to South Bend and leaving with their first loss of the season. Boston College, in its final year as a member of the Big East, set the record for most consecutive wins by a Big East team to start a season. The 2012 Syracuse team began the game against the Irish with the goal of breaking Boston College's record. As in 2005, the Irish defeated Syracuse and cemented their place as the streak stopper.

*Occurred in NCAA Tournament. Indiana was #2 in the AP sportswriters poll and #1 in the UPI coaches poll.

**UCLA's 88 game win streak started immediately after the 1971 loss to Notre Dame. The Irish bookended the streak, an NCAA men's basketball record.

***Kentucky was #2 in the AP sportswriters poll and #1 in the UPI coaches poll.

****North Carolina was #2 in the AP sportswriters poll and #1 in the USA Today coaches poll.

*****After that win, AP Poll ranked Notre Dame #5. First time in top 5 since 2010-11 season with the Big East.
