Harangody returns from injury as Abromaitis lifts ND in OT

MILWAUKEE -- Luke Harangody returned from injury, and Notre Dame put a stop to Marquette's remarkable recent run of overtime victories with a 63-60 win Saturday.

Tim Abromaitis had 18 points and hit enough late free throws to save the game for the Irish (21-10, 10-8 Big East). Notre Dame scored the first five points of overtime to take control of the game, then held off a late Marquette surge.

Harangody had five points and two rebounds in 11 minutes after missing five games with a bone bruise on his right knee. Notre Dame's Carleton Scott hit a 3-pointer just before the final horn to send the game into overtime.

Lazar Hayward scored 18 points but fouled out in overtime in his final home game for the Golden Eagles (20-10, 11-7), who had won four straight. Jimmy Butler added 16 points and eight rebounds.
