On Saturday, the Irish men's basketball team will try an make it two wins in a row, when they host Florida State.

Notre Dame snapped a 7-game losing streak on Tuesday. They broke out of their shooting slump at the same time, when they put 96 points up against Boston College.

Sophomore forward John Mooney said, "That was definitely a big night for us, getting back in the win column and scoring 96 points and how we do things. It was a lot of fun, and I think it's going to spark us going into Saturday. We're going to need to play hard like that again."

It was Notre Dame's highest point total since Bonzie Colson went down.

Senior point guard added, "We all needed this. It's a huge weight lifted off of our shoulders now hopefully. We've just got to keep plugging and we've got the change to beat a really good team on Saturday."

The Irish players hope its the kind of night that can spark them into playing better from here on out.

T.J. Gibbs said, "When we get that juice going, we're a hard team to stop. We got our rhythm back and we've got to keep it going now, and just keep playing how we play and we're going to find ourselves now. That's going to be the big thing Saturday too."

Notre Dame & Florida State tip-off at 4:00pm ET on Saturday. At halftime, Notre Dame will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the program's only Final Four.
