    Notre Dame Runs Past Australian Juniors

    Senior guard Admore White keyed a big run with consecutive 3-pointers and Notre Dame erupted in the second half to take a 105-75 victory over the Australian Junior National team in front of 9,042 at Joyce Center.

    White hit back-to-back 3-pointers from the right side early in the second half to kick off a 19-6 run that left the Irish with a 70-48 lead at the 11:16 mark of the second half.

    Pat Garrity led Notre Dame with 23 points and 10 rebounds. Freshman David Lazarian added 15 points and seven rebounds. White, who is taking over for departed point guard Doug Gottlieb, finished with 13 points, five assists and four rebounds.

    Notre Dame shot 54 percent from the floor in the second half and made 18-of-20 free throws.

    The Australian Junior National Team got 25 points from Cameron Dickenson and 10 points apiece from Matt Neilson and Gavin VanDerPutten, a former UC Santa Barbara player.

    After missing all nine 3-point attempts in the first half, Antoni Wyche got the Irish going with a 3-pointer just 1:08 into the half. Shortly after that, White made three during a 2:15 stretch.

    The Irish were 8-for-11 (73 percent) from beyond the arc in the second half.

    Notre Dame opens the regular season Nov. 24 against Monmouth.
