SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -Luke Harangody had 27 points and nine rebounds and Notre Dame shot 56 percent to beat pesky St. Francis of Pennsylvania 95-72 on Monday night.
The Fighting Irish (2-0) used a 14-0 run early to take a double-digit lead, but the inexperienced Red Flash (1-1) quickly cut the lead back to five. Notre Dame regained a 15-point lead 5 minutes into the second half when Harangody made a 3-pointer to give the Irish a 60-45 advantage.
Umar Shannon scored 18 points for the Red Flash, who played the Irish surprisingly tough considering they were picked by coaches to finish last in the Northeast Conference.
