Notre Dame Holds off Boston College

Game Statistics

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Pat Garrity scored 31 points and grabbed 11 rebounds to lead Notre Dame to a 75-72 Big East win Wednesday over Boston College.

Nineteen of Garrity's points came in the second half as Notre Dame (12-9, 6-7) held off a late rally by the Eagles (12-13, 4-10) to pull out the win.

Phil Hickey scored a career-high 21 points for the Irish, including two free throws with 48 seconds to break a 70-70 tie. Garrity hit two more from the line with 17 seconds left to give the Irish a three-point lead.

Boston College center Mickey Curley missed a 3-pointer with three seconds to go that could have tied the game. It was Curley's first career 3-point attempt.

Garrity and Hickey combined to score Notre Dame's first 12 second-half points as the Irish increased a one-point halftime lead to 54-44 midway through the period. The Irish led 67-56 with 5:15 to go after a Hickey dunk and free throw.

Duane Woodward then scored nine of his 23 points during a 14-3 run as the Eagles rallied to tie the game at 70-70. Notre Dame hit 5-of-6 free throws in the final 48 seconds to pull out the victory.

Kostas Maglos added 18 points for Boston College while Antonio Granger added 17.
