    Garrity Again Leads Way As Irish Down Huskies

    NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- Pat Garrity scored 25 points and grabbed 15 rebounds to lead Notre Dame to a 71-65 overtime victory over Connecticut in a Big East game.

    Connecticut (12-9, 5-7) shot just 24 percent (19-of-80) from the field. But the Huskies were 11-of-24 from three-point range and a woeful 8-of-56 (14 percent) from inside the three-point arc.

    Notre Dame improved to 11-9 overall and 5-7 in the conference.

    Ricky Moore led Connecticut with 22 points. Connecticut forwards Kevin Freeman and Richard Hamilton combined to hit 5-of-28 shots from the field. Huskies guard Dion Carson was 1-of-10 from the field.

    The Irish return to the hardwood Tuesday when they host West Virginia in another Big East matchup.
