Horton, Brown lead Michigan past Notre Dame

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -- Dion Harris hit a shot from the corner
with his foot on the 3-point line to break a tie as Michigan
finished with an 8-0 run to beat Notre Dame 71-67 on Saturday.

After Harris' shot with 16 seconds left gave the Wolverines
(5-0) a 69-67 lead, a 10-foot jumper by Chris Quinn rattled out of
the basket. Lester Abram then made a pair of free throws with 1.9
seconds left to clinch the victory.

The Irish (2-2) led 65-60 when Quinn, who scored 20 of his 26
points in the second half, hit a 3-pointer with 3:03 left. Quinn
then made a pair of free throws with 2:18 left, but the Irish
didn't score again. Quinn aired a 3-pointer on Notre Dame's next
possession under heavy pressure by Abram.

Daniel Horton scored 13 of his 19 points in the second half and
finished with seven assists and two steals to pace the Wolverines.
Graham Brown had 13 points and 10 rebounds, including four points
during the final 8-0 run, Harris finished with 12 points and
Courtney Sims added 11 points and nine rebounds.

Torin Francis had 22 points and 13 rebounds for the Irish, who
lost their second straight.

Notre Dame led by as much as 13-5 early and was up 25-20 with
4:01 left in the first half when Francis scored inside on a nice
pass from Luke Zeller. The Wolverines used a 7-0 run to pull ahead
briefly 27-25, but Kyle McAlarney hit a pair of free throws with
3.6 seconds left to tie the score at halftime.

The Wolverines led 39-32 early in the second half, but the Irish
tied it on a 3-pointer by Zeller with 13 minutes left. The game was
back-and-forth throughout, with the score tied 11 times and eight
lead changes.
