Notre Dame, IN (Sports Network) - Garrick Sherman scored 18 points on 8-of-10 shooting to help the Notre Dame Fighting Irish to a 65-48 win over the George Washington Colonials at the Joyce Center.

Sherman, a Michigan State transfer, came off the bench to lead the Fighting Irish (4-1) in scoring despite only playing 18 minutes. Jerian Grant scored 13 while Eric Atkins had nine assists for coach Mike Brey, a George Washington alumnus.

George Washington (1-2) struggled shooting all game, connecting on just 32.8 percent of its shots. Isaiah Armwood led the Colonials with 12 points but needed 15 shots to get them. He was the only member of the team to score in double figures.
