SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - One day following the press conference where head coach Mike Brey officially declared he’ll step away from Notre Dame men’s basketball following this season, the Fighting Irish found themselves overwhelmed by yet another conference opponent.

This time around, that opponent was Boston College, who took down Notre Dame by a final score of 84-72. The Eagles shot a red-hot 11-19 (57 percent) from three as they opened up multiple double-digit leads on the Irish in the second half.

Notre Dame was led by Nate Laszewski, who was lasered in from deep, making 7 of his 9 three-point attempts. He finished tied for the game high with 29 points.

Next for Notre Dame is a Jan. 24 test versus NC State (15-5).
