Irish Down Florida International for Third Straight Win

NOTRE DAME, Ind. --- Senior forward Pat Garrity scored 20 of his game-high 24 points in the second half as Notre Dame men's basketball team improved its record to 6-2 on the season with a 99-85 win over Florida International on Saturday afternoon before 7,223 fans at the Joyce Center.

Florida International, which had beaten Alabama last Saturday by a 68-66 count, drops to 5-3. Notre Dame's 6-2 start is the best beginning of a season for an Irish team since the 1988-89 squad started 8-2.

Notre Dame connected on 12 of 30 three-point field goal attempts, the second most by an Irish team in a single-game. Notre Dame was also 17 of 20 from the free throw line.

Garrity was two of six from the field in the first half, but came back to go seven for ten from the field in the second half to lead all scorers. Junior center Phil Hickey added 15 points and 10 rebounds for the Irish to register the double-double while freshman guard Martin Ingelsby also had a double-double with 16 points and 11 assists, one off his career high.

Senior forward Derek Manner also added 12 points for the Irish. Florida International had four players score in double figures, led by Raja Bell with 23 points while Darius Cook had seven rebounds.
