Grant leads Notre Dame in win over Cornell, 101-67
NOTRE DAME 101, CORNELL 67

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -- Jerian Grant scored 20 points to reach
1,000 for his career in leading Notre Dame to a 101-67 win
Sunday over Cornell at Purcell Pavilion.

Eric Atkins added 19 points and Pat Connaughton had 18 as all
five Irish starters reached double figures.

Nolan Cressler scored 17 points and Robert Hatter had 15 to pace
Cornell, which has now lost 15 in a row dating back to last
season, one away from tying the school record longest losing
streak of 16, set in the 1972-73 season.

The Big Red, which won 29 games and advanced to the Sweet 16 in
2010, is 0-9 for the first time since 1904-05, when it started
0-10.

After starting the game 2-for-10, Notre Dame (5-1) found the
range and finished with its highest point total of the season.
The Irish broke the 100-point mark for the first time since its
5-overtime upset of Louisville last season.

Grant knocked down a pair of 3-pointers early in the second half
as Notre Dame hit four in a row from deep, but Hatter kept the
Big Red within striking distance. Hatter scored Cornell's first
six points of the second half and continually found room in the
lane, forcing Notre Dame coach Mike Brey to switch to a zone
defense.

Cornell missed its next three field goals and a 3-pointer. A
three-point play by Connaughton started a 17-2 run that pushed
Notre Dame's lead to 25 points with 6:26 to play.

Cornell went 4:29 without a field goal during that run. Grant's
three-point play with 7:18 remaining got him to the 1,000-point
mark.

Freshman guard Demetrius Jackson earned his first career start
as the Irish went with a three-guard lineup against the
perimeter-oriented Big Red, who average just over 26 3-point
attempts per game.

Cornell, which finished 8 of 21 from the arc, hit its first two
3-pointers and scored the game's first eight points before the
Irish got it going. Notre Dame scored the next 10 points, and
went on a 22-4 run to go up by 10 with 8:39 to play in the first
half. Cornell hit just 1 of 11 shots, including seven straight
misses, during that nine-minute stretch.

Notre Dame's biggest first-half lead was 14 points, and
Connaughton finished the half with 12.
