Recap: Notre Dame vs. Brown

South Bend, IN (Sports Network) - Jack Cooley had 15 points and 12 rebounds to lead 22nd-ranked Notre Dame to an 84-57 win over Brown on Saturday.

"I thought we got off to a great start," said Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey. "Our guards did a fabulous job guarding their (Brown's) guards. Their guards are good. It was a workout all night chasing them around."

Matt Sullivan had a game-high 18 points and Sean McGonagill scored 15 points for the Bears (3-5), who have dropped four of their last five.

"We showed flashes of effort tonight," said Brown head coach Mike Martin. "But you have to compete for 40 minutes to stay with a team as talented as Notre Dame."
