Notre Dame Vs. St. John's Score Update: Irish Drop Heartbreaker

One of the most remarkable aspects of Notre Dame's resurgence has been the ability to rally from early deficits. However, the No. 18 Fighting Irish were unable to dig themselves out of an early hole against St. John's, as their rally came up just short in the 61-58 loss. With the loss, No. 2 Syracuse clinched the Big East regular-season championship, while Notre Dame fell a game behind Marquette for second place.

Notre Dame completely dominated the paint in the loss, as both Jack Cooley and Scott Martin scored 18 points. Cooley continued his excellent form, as he also pulled down 11 rebounds for the double-double. However, the Irish went cold shooting from the perimeter, as they hit just 4/31 from behind the three-point line. Jerian Grant and Eric Atkins combined to shoot just 3/17.

St. John's was led by the outstanding Moe Harkless, who scored 22 points and grabbed eight rebounds in the win. D'Angelo Harrison added 15 points, while Amir Garrett scored 11 points.
