SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. (AP) - Reserve center LaNedra Brown scored all 10 of her points in the final 9:21, leading Seton Hall to a 51-45 victory over No. 23 Notre Dame on Sunday.

Melissa Langelier scored 13 points and made four free throws in the final 25 seconds for Seton Hall (13-8, 5-5 Big East), which won for the third time in four games.

The loss snapped a five-game winning streak for Notre Dame (14-8, 7-3).

Ashley Bush's drive put Seton Hall ahead 43-41 with 3:21 left. Jacqueline Batteast, who was in foul trouble all game and finished with nine points, six below her season average, made one free throw with 2:11 remaining to cut it to 43-42.

With the shot clock winding down, Brown hit a 14-foot jumper with 43 seconds left. She added two free throws with 19 seconds remaining to seal the victory.

The teams took turns exchanging the lead in a tight second half. A layup by Courtney LaVere and a three-point play by Le'Tania Severe gave the Fighting Irish a 33-29 lead with 12:02 left, but Seton Hall regained the lead at 41-40 on two free throws by Langelier with 4:40 to go.

Notre Dame tied it on a free throw by LaVere before Bush put Seton Hall back on top.

The Irish went on a 10-0 run in the first half, led by two power post moves from reserve freshman forward Crystal Erwin. Batteast and center Teresa Borton also added baskets inside during the spurt, helping Notre Dame take a 14-10 lead with 11:50 remaining in the first half.

Notre Dame extended its lead to 21-13, the biggest by either team in the game, and was up 23-17 at halftime.
