  • Recovered from early foul trouble (three fouls with 9:39 left in the first half) to lead Notre Dame to victory over Miami (2/14/12). When the Hurricanes took a lead with 6:44 left, Laszewski scored seven consecutive points and pulled down two defensive rebounds to provide the Irish a lead they would not relinquish the rest of the contest. Ended up with 14 points and seven rebounds in the victory.

  • Scored 12 of his 16 points in the first half against Boston College (1/16/21), collecting six rebounds and shooting 7-of-10 from the field.
  • With No. 19/20 Virginia Tech (1/10/21) focused on taking away his three-point shot, Laszewski responded by driving to the basket in the contest, drawing seven personal fouls on the Hokies and earning 11 of his team-high 17 points at the free throw line.
  • Came close to carrying the Irish to victory in the one-point loss at North Carolina (1/2/21), scoring 25 points with seven three-point field goals and nine rebounds.
  • Continued his efficient offensive game by posting a career-best 28 points against No. 23/24 Virginia (12/30/20), shooting eight-of-11 from the floor, four-of-seven from three-point range and 8-of-10 from the free throw line.

  • Inserted into the starting lineup against Presbyterian (11/18/19) as John Mooney was sidelined with an illness. Scored a season-high 11 points with six rebounds while making two key drives and dunks late in the victory.


  • Finished sixth on the Notre Dame freshman-season list for both three point field goals made (44) and attempted (130).
