SOUTH BEND, Ind. – Jerian Grant scored 22 points to lead red-hot Notre Dame to a 92-65 win over Chicago State on Monday night.

The Irish (6-1) took a 51-32 lead into the break, thanks largely to their blistering accuracy from 3-point land. They hit 10 of 16 3-point attempts in the first half, a 62.5-percent clip.

Scott Martin and Cameron Biedscheid each hit 3 of 5 3-point attempts for the Irish. They finished 12 of 22, or 55 percent, from behind the arc, and 61 percent overall.

Grant hit a strong baseline drive and drew a foul, then made the free throw, to give Notre Dame its then-biggest lead, 42-27, with 3:20 to go in the half. Moments later, he stole an inbound pass near the top of the Chicago State key and drove the length of the floor for an electrifying windmill dunk.

Clarke Rosenberg led the Cougars (1-6) with 16 points.

Notre Dame put the game away with a 10-0 run that began with 13:28 remaining. Biedscheid started it with a 3, followed by three low-post put-ins by Garrick Sherman and a 15-footer by Eric Atkins. That made it a 27-point lead with 10:37 to go.
