• Notre Dame had its program-record nine-game BIG EAST win streak snapped. The Fighting Irish also had won four straight road games prior to today.

• The Fighting Irish never led in today's contest.

• Today was the 38th meeting all-time between Notre Dame and St. John's. The Irish lead the series 20-18. Notre Dame has dropped its last three games at St. John's

Eric Atkins (So./G), Pat Connaughton (Fr./G), Jack Cooley (Jr./F), Jerian Grant (So./G) and Scott Martin (Sr./G) started today's contest.

Tom Knight (Jr./F)
• Hauled down a career-high six rebounds ... his previous high was five on two occasions
