SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Luke Harangody had a season-high 37 points and 14 rebounds, and Tim Abromaitis added 22 points Thursday as Notre Dame beat Cincinnati 83-65, just the second win in six games for the Fighting Irish.
Harangody, who was just 5-of-20 shooting for 14 points with 11 rebounds in a 60-58 loss to the Bearcats on Jan. 16, was 7 of 13 for 16 points and 10 rebounds at halftime. He finished with 15-of-25 shooting to lead Notre Dame (16-7, 5-5 Big East) to the much-needed win.
The Irish, who were outrebounded 50-31 by the Bearcats (14-8, 5-5) in that loss last month, had a 41-32 edge in the victory. Notre Dame used runs of 11-3 and 10-2 to open a 40-27 halftime lead and the Bearcats never got closer than nine points in the second half.
Larry Davis led Cincinnati (14-8, 5-5) with 12 points.
