Notre Dame Men's Basketball | Dec. 14, 2013 | Notre Dame Athletics

Jerian Grant had 23 points and nine assists Saturday, and Pat Connaughton scored all 14 of his points in the second half to lead Notre Dame past Indiana 79-72 in the Crossroads Classic.

The Fighting Irish (8-3) won for just the third time in five games, but never trailed the Hoosiers.

Despite having most of the crowd clad in Indiana red, the Hoosiers (8-3) lost for the second straight year in Indianapolis. Will Sheehey tied his career high with 22 points, while Kevin "Yogi" Ferrell finished with 13.

Notre Dame took a 13-point lead in the first half, forcing the Hoosiers to play catch-up the rest of the afternoon. They never quite did.
