Men's Basketball Falls to Miami 66-57

Game Stats

MIAMI (AP) - With Johnny Hemsley sitting out his fourth game in a row, Tim James picked up the slack with 20 points and eight rebounds as Miami defeated Notre Dame 66-57 Saturday night.

Hemsley, who averages 14.6 points per game, was suspended by coach Leonard Hamilton for violating an unspecified team policy.

Miami (16-6, 9-5) had dropped two of its last three and is 4-5 after opening the year 12-1.

Trailing by one point at the half, Miami fell behind by seven, 41-34, with 12:44 to play.

The Hurricanes went on a 12-0 run mid-way through the second half, fueled by consecutive baskets by Steve Frazier. The first a 3-pointer was his first points of the night.

Notre Dame (12-10, 6-8) would never lead again. The closest the Fighting Irish would come was 59-57 on a pair of free throws by Leviticus Williamson with 2:36 left.

But Kevin Norris drove the lane and scored on the next trip down the court to push the lead back up to four and close out any chance of a Notre Dame victory.

Miami's defense pressured Notre Dame into 23 turnovers that led to 20 points.

Vernon Jennings, who replaced Hemsley in the starting lineup, scored a career-high 12 points to go along with seven rebounds and five assists.

Pat Garrity led the Irish with 20 points.

Miami led by one at the half, 27-26.
