NOTRE DAME, Ind. (AP) - Second-ranked Notre Dame is making a habit of overcoming slow starts.
Three days after coming back from 12 points down to beat Tennessee by 16, the Irish started 1 for 13 from the field against Miami and fell behind by six before coming back to beat the Hurricanes 79-52 Thursday night.
Notre Dame coach Muffet McGraw said the slow start snowballed after the Irish missed their first three shots in the opening 23 seconds.
"I think everybody got a little tight then and we needed our veterans to step up and relax and make shots," McGraw said.
