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.
