Loyola Marymount surprises Notre Dame 87-85
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP)—Jarred DuBois hit a 3-pointer with 8 seconds left to lift Loyola Marymount to an 87-85 victory over Notre Dame on Saturday night.
A 3-pointer by Ben Hansbrough with 1:50 left had given the Irish (9-2) an 85-82 lead. But the Lions cut the lead to one when Vernon Teel scored on a fast-break layup after stealing the ball from Hansbrough.
After an exchange of possessions, Tim Abromaitis was called for a 5-second violation when he couldn’t get the ball in, giving the ball back to the Lions. That’s when Dubois, who finished with 12, hit the 3.
Jackson had a chance to tie it, but his jumper with 2 seconds left missed, and Drew Viney got the rebound.
Teel led the Lions (4-7) with 24 points and 11 rebounds. Luke Harangody had 24 points and 11 rebounds for Notre Dame.
