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.

Cameron Biedscheid dropped in 17 points, while Scott Martin chipped in with 14 points and eight boards for the Fighting Irish (8-1), who have won six straight. Eric Atkins had 10 points and 12 assists and Jerian Grant donated 12 points and seven assists in the triumph.

"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."
