Two days after #22 Notre Dame defeated Purdue at the Crossroads Classic, the Fighting Irish returned home to face IPFW at Purcell Pavilion. They overcame nine first half turnovers and a tough Mastodon defense to win 74-62, improving to 10-1 on the year.
Pat Connaughton had his best game of the season, scoring 18 points while adding six rebounds and five assists. The sophomore shot 7-of-9 from the field and led all scorers.
The team returns to its home floor on Wednesday against Kennesaw State (7 pm ET on ESPN3). Mike Brey will see a familiar face across the court, as the Owls are led by Lewis Preston, who was an assistant with the Irish for six seasons.
