Notre Dame beat Bryant with ease on Sunday.

Eric Atkins scored 18 points and four other Notre Dame players were in double digits as the Irish cruised by Bryant on Sunday afternoon. Coming off losses to Missouri and Georgia, Notre Dame was eager to get back on track and wasted little time dispatching Bryant.

Notre Dame built a 16-6 lead in the game's first seven minutes and their opponent didn't mount much of a challenge from that point on. By the midway point of the first half, the Irish were up 30-13; they led 47-28 at the half.

The Irish shot 48.4% on the afternoon and made 11 of 25 three-point attempts. Bryant, meanwhile, was limited to just 35.4% from the field and missed 20 of 26 three-point attempts. Notre Dame also controlled the glass at both ends of the floor and finished the game with a 46-33 edge in rebounds.
