LOUSIVILLE, Ky. (AP) - David Padgett made sure Louisville brought a little order to the jumbled mess at the top of the Big East.

Padgett scored a season-high 26 points and Earl Clark added 14 points and nine rebounds as No. 13 Louisville (23-6, 13-3 Big East) survived No. 17 Notre Dame 90-85 Thursday. The Cardinals' eighth-straight victory moved them into a tie for first in the Big East with No. 11 Georgetown with two games remaining.

Luke Harangody led the Irish (21-6, 11-4) with a career-high 40 points and added a game-high 12 rebounds to post his 17th double-double of the season.

Ryan Ayers added 17 points for Notre Dame, but the Cardinals bottled up Irish guard Kyle McAlarney. One game after setting a school-record with nine 3-pointers in a win over Syracuse, McAlarney managed just seven points on 3-of-14 shooting, including 1-of-8 on 3-pointers.

Louisville never trailed and led by as much as 19 with 5:41 left. But Harangody almost single-handedly kept the Irish in it, hitting his first three 3-pointers of his career in the final minutes.

Notre Dame got as close as 86-81 on Harangody's final 3-pointer, but Edgar Sosa hit a pair of free throws as the Cardinals held on.
