Notre Dame Drops Tight Contest to Miami

Game Statistics

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Miami guard Kevin Norris stripped Notre Dame of the lead, then stripped Irish guard Martin Ingelsby of the ball to lift the Hurricanes past the Irish 65-59 on Sunday.

Norris rescued Miami (17-7, 10-6 Big East) after Notre Dame took its first lead of the second half, 57-55, on a running jump shot by Antoni Wyche with 3:17 to play.

Norris knocked down a 15-footer with 2:42 left to tie the game 57-57. Another Norris 15-footer restored Miami's lead, 59-57, with 1:58 to play.

Then, as Irish freshman guard Martin Ingelsby brought the ball down the left side, Norris slipped in and stripped the ball away just past mid-court.

Miami worked the ball along the left baseline to Tim James, who slammed in a two-handed stuff to make it 61-57 with 1:15 left.

Notre Dame (12-12, 6-10) had one more chance, after Pat Garrity hit two free throws to make it 61-59 with 1:02 to play. Garrity fouled James on the next trip down the floor, sending James to the free-throw line for a one-and-one.

James missed the front end and Garrity rebounded, but Garrity was called for a lane violation and, with a second chance, James hit both free throws, putting the Hurricanes up 63-59 with 34 seconds left.

Phil Hickey fouled Vernon Jennings with 8 seconds left and Jennings hit two free throws for the final margin.

Miami forced 18 Irish turnovers, including 14 steals. Norris finished with 11 points for Miami. Mario Bland and Johnny Hemsley led the Hurricanes with 14 points each.

Garrity, the Big East scoring leader averaging 23 points per game, led all scorers with 29 points and added 10 rebounds for his eighth double-double of the season.

Garrity surpassed 2,000 career points and is fourth on Notre Dame's all-time list with 2,017 points, 41 behind David Rivers with two regular-season games to play.

Garrity and Wyche were the only Irish players in double figures, with Wyche scoring 14.
