Notre Dame Takes Care of Northeastern

SOUTH BEND, Ind. - Pat Garrity scored 24 points and freshman point guard Martin Ingelsby had 11 assists Tuesday as Notre Dame defeated Northeastern 72-45.

Garrity's jumper tied the game at 21 and sparked an 18-5 run to close out the half. The Irish (2-1) opened the second half with a 14-0 run, and Northeastern (1-1) never got close again. Notre Dame coach John MacLeod put the Irish backups in with about five minutes to go, and the walk-ons took over for the final 90 seconds.

Notre Dame had four players in double figures. Phil Hickey scored 12, and Antoni Wyche and Leviticus Williamson, who was making his first start, each had 10. Tyrone Mack's 13 points led Northeastern, which was just 18-of-64 (28 percent) from the floor.

Northeastern kept the game close for the first 15 minutes, jumping out to a 9-2 lead. It dominated the boards, drilled jumpers and forced Notre Dame into turnover after turnover with its quick, pesky defense.

But when the Huskies fell apart, they fell quick and hard. Shots sailed wide of the basket or clanged off the rims if they came close. They got beat on easy rebounds and the Irish picked off their bad passes.

Ingelsby looked smooth all night, feeding Garrity and Wyche with in-the-air passes to set up dunks. He was close to a double-double at the half with seven assists, six rebounds and two points.

Despite scoring 24, Garrity struggled, shooting just 9-of-19 from the floor and 1-of-4 from 3-point range. He moved past LaPhonso Ellis into No. 8 on Notre Dame's career scoring list with 1,560 points.
