Cormac Ryan helps Notre Dame rout No. 20 Michigan State 70-52
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Cormac Ryan scored 20 of his 23 points in the first half as Notre Dame cruised to a 70-52 win over No. 20 Michigan State on Wednesday night in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.
He went 6-of-7 on 3′s, missing his last one to keep him from tying a school single-game record for most 3-pointers without a miss. Ryan helped the Fighting Irish (6-1) jump out to a 42-24 halftime lead.
JJ Starling added 14 points and Dane Goodwin 12 for the Irish, who led 39-16 by the 4:33 mark of the first half and didn’t commit their first turnover until more than 17 minutes into the game.
The Spartans (5-3) were paced by A.J. Hoggard with 15 points. Joey Hauser and Tyson Walker added 12 apiece.
The Irish will take the court at Purcell Pavilion once again on Saturday at 12 p.m. against Syracuse.
