Notre Dame 63, Marquette 60

Luke Harangody returned from injury, and Notre Dame put a stop

to Marquette’s remarkable recent run of overtime victories with a

63-60 win Saturday.

Tim Abromaitis had 18 points and hit enough late free throws to

save the game for the Irish (21-10, 10-8 Big East). Notre Dame

scored the first five points of overtime to take control of the

game, then held off a late Marquette surge.

Harangody had five points and two rebounds in 11 minutes after

missing five games with a bone bruise on his right knee. Notre

Dame’s Carleton Scott hit a 3-pointer just before the final horn to

send the game into overtime.

Lazar Hayward scored 18 points but fouled out in overtime in his

final home game for the Golden Eagles (20-10, 11-7), who had won

four straight. Jimmy Butler added 16 points and eight rebounds.
