Irish roll past Cincinnati

SOUTH BEND – Jerian Grant scored 13 points to lead No. 25 Notre Dame to a 62-41 win over Cincinnati on Sunday.

Grant shot just 2-of-9 from the field but was perfect from the free-throw line, hitting a season-high nine.

The Irish (22-6, 10-5 Big East) had four players score in double figures. Tom Knight scored 12, followed by Jack Cooley and Eric Atkins with 11.

Unlike their last game against Pittsburgh, when they managed only one field goal over the first 9 minutes, the Irish started hot, hitting their first four attempts. Cincinnati, by contrast, converted just 3 of their first 15 tries, and finished the first half shooting 7-of-25, or 28 percent.

The Bearcats (19-9, 7-8) weren't much more accurate in the second half, finishing the game at 32 percent shooting.

JaQuon Parker led Cincinnati with 12 points.

Notre Dame got solid play from all four of their bigs, dominating Cincinnati on the boards. The Irish outrebounded the Bearcats 43-27, often kicking the ball back out to their guards to set up new plays.

Irish freshman Zach Auguste came off the bench to grab nine rebounds, his season high.

With the win, Notre Dame has now at least 10 Big East victories four years in a row for the first time in school history.
