The men’s bball team took care of business again tonight with a 81-49 win over Savannah State.  The win was the 43rd in a row at the Joyce Center for Notre Dame and improves their record on the season to 9-2.  Here are some notes from the victory.

  • Kyle McAlarney’s 8 points give him 1,002 career points making him the 49th player in Notre Dame history to eclipse 1,000 career points.
  • Luke Harangody shot just 5 of 14 from the field but hit 13 of 14 free throws and led Notre Dame with 23 points and  13 rebounds.
  • Tory Jackson and Ryan Ayers were the only other Notre Dame players in double figures with 10 points each.
  • Tyrone Nash played just 14 minutes, but scored 9 points and collected 5 rebounds, 1 assist and 1 steal.  Nash has been very productive in limited minutes this year and will hopefully continue to see more minutes.
  • Notre Dame shot 34% in the first half as a team, but rebounded by hitting 67% from the field in the second half.
  • Notre Dame committed just 6 fouls as a team in the game.
  • The Irish held a 44-21 rebounding edge led by Harangody’s 13.
  • Savannah State had just one player in double figures – Chris Linton with 14 points.
  • This was the last non-conference game before Notre Dame open’s its Big East schedule against DePaul on New Year’s Eve.

    Sweet Deal Frankie.


    Savannah state beat MIchigan earlier this year. Maybe not right now but this win could look better if Sav St starts winning more games. They seemed like a good defensive team.

    Luke Harangody is a beast. He is always diving on the floor and hustleing. K-Mac was blanketed by 2 guys at all times. It was pretty tight D on him. TJ has way too many turnovers this year. He did it against Ohio st and he had i think 4 last night. We shredded their press pretty good but it did slow us down a bit. All in all good game for us though.

    Go Irish
