Notre Dame 93, IUPUI 70

Ben Hansbrough scored 22 points, Tim Abromaitis added 18 and

Notre Dame took command early en route to a 93-70 victory over

IUPUI on Wednesday night.

The usually slow-starting Fighting Irish (9-1), who hadn’t led

by double digits at halftime since their season opener, used an

11-0 run early in the first half and another near the end of the

half to take control. Notre Dame shot 53 percent in the first half

while holding the Jaguars (7-3) to 26-percent shooting, opening a

45-22 halftime lead.

Hansbrough (15), Luke Harangody (11) and Abromaitis (10) all

scored in double figures in the first half.

Robert Glenn led the Jaguars with 19 points, although he had

just four points at halftime. Harangody had 16 points and 11

rebounds for the Irish.
