SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Jerian Grant scored 23 points Saturday and Notre Dame came back from a 12-point deficit in the second half to beat Miami 75-70.
After making just two of their first 16 3-point tries, the Irish hit seven of their next nine. Grant’s 3 broke a tie with 6:19 left, and he made a layup and blocked a shot in the last minute.
Notre Dame (17-2, 5-1 ACC) equaled the program’s best start through 19 games, matching the 1978-79 team.
Sheldon McClellan scored 17 points and freshman Ja’Quan Newton had a season-high 16 for Miami (12-5, 2-2). The Hurricanes led 43-31 with under 15 minutes remaining.
Irish forward Zach Auguste, who missed Wednesday’s win at Georgia Tech because of an academic issue, scored four points in nine minutes. He didn’t start, and began the day as the team’s second-leading scorer at 14.3 points per game.
