SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP)–Carleton Scott leapt high and got his left hand on an alley-oop pass from Luke Harangody and deflected it in, igniting an 18-2 run that let Notre Dame break the game open in beating Idaho State 80-70 Tuesday night.
Harangody led the Irish (7-1) with 27 points and 12 rebounds to become the first Notre Dame player with 2,000 career points and 1,000 rebounds. Ben Hansbrough added 14 points.
Idaho State (2-5), which trailed 40-37 at halftime, closed to 47-42 when Broderick Gilchrest drove inside for a basket and then made a free throw. But Scott scored his alley-oop basket, then Harangody made one of his two 3-pointers as the Irish began pulling away, opening a 65-44 lead when Tim Abromaitis made a fastbreak jumper.
Demetrius Monroe was 8-of-9 shooting, leading the Bengals with 18 points. Gilchrest and Austin Kilpatrick added 12 points each.
