College Basketball: Notre Dame Edges Detroit To Reach 2-0

Joey Brooks finished with 13 points, nine rebounds and two steals to help lead Notre Dame to a 59-53 win over Detroit.

Joey Brooks and Eric Atkins each scored 13 points to lead Notre Dame (2-0) to a 59-53 victory over Detroit at the Joyce Center. Brooks, a 6'6 junior wing out of Houston, also added nine rebounds and two steals in the win for the Irish. Notre Dame was again without arguably its best player, senior forward Tim Abromaitis. Abromaitis served the second game of a four-game NCAA suspension for a technical rules violation that occurred his freshman season.

Detroit held a 39-31 lead in the second half before poor shooting doomed them. For the game, the Titans shot just under 31 percent. The Irish made their impact at the line, draining 17 free throws (at a 54 percent clip, but still) compared to five by Detroit.

Detroit was led by sophomore Ray McCallum, who finished with a game-high 20 points.

Next up for Notre Dame is is Sam Houston State on Wednesday.
