Martin’s 3-pointers lead No. 21 Irish to 93-74 win; Boilers not so lucky


SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Seton Hall knew it was in for a challenge trying to slow Jack Cooley and Eric Atkins against No. 21 Notre Dame. When Scott Martin began hitting 3s over the Pirates’ zone defense, they had no chance.

Martin had a season-high 22 points on a career-high six 3-pointers to lead the Irish to a 93-74 victory Saturday.

”That was great to see,” Notre Dame coach Mike Brey said. ”That’s a weapon that is a new kind of a weapon for us that we’re really going to need to count on through the rest of the Big East.”

Cooley added 19 points and 13 rebounds and Atkins had 17 points and 10 assists as the Irish (13-1, 1-0 Big East) won their 11th straight, their second-longest winning streak in 13 seasons under Brey. The loss ended a seven-game winning streak for Seton Hall (12-3, 1-1).
