Notre Dame Surges Past Georgetown, 79-69

Game Statistics

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Pat Garrity scored 24 points, 19 in the second half, to lead Notre Dame to a 79-69 win over Georgetown on Wednesday.

Garrity sparked a second-half surge with eight points in the first seven minutes of the second half and hit a clutch 3-pointer down the stretch during a 16-2 run to key the win.

With two minutes left, Garrity broke free on the right wing and hit a 3-pointer to put Notre Dame (13-12, 7-10 Big East) ahead 71-67.

Garrity also shot 15-for-19 from the free throw line, including a pair with 42 seconds left that gave the Irish a nine-point lead.

Antoni Wyche, who scored 13, added five free throws of his own in the final minute to secure the victory.

Georgetown (14-12, 6-11) threatened to pull away in both halves but never opened more than a five-point lead. Sophomore Shernard Long led the Hoyas with 26 points, including 11 of Georgetown's first 12 points.

The Irish took a 30-28 lead just before the half, less than a minute after an altercation between Notre Dames Phil Hickey and Georgetowns Boubacar Aw. Official Frank Scagliotta tried to separate the players, but an errant punch knocked him to the floor.

Scagliotta quickly got to his feet and the officials reviewed the incident on a courtside television, calling technical fouls on both Hickey and Aw. They determined Aws was a flagrant foul and ejected him from the game.

Scagliotta immediately returned to the court.
