Notre Dame 71, Saint Francis NY 53

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Martinas Geben had 14 points and 10 rebounds to help No. 5 Notre Dame beat St. Francis (Brooklyn) 71-53 on Sunday despite ejections to All-American Bonzie Colson and coach Mike Brey with 6:02 left.

Colson, who had 13 points and 9 rebounds, was called for a flagrant foul when he swung his elbows and floored the Terriers' Glenn Sanabria. As Colson left the court following his ejection, Brey had to be restrained twice by his coaching staff, the second time leading to his ejection.

Matt Farrell scored 12 points while T.J. Gibbs and D.J. Harvey had 10 each for the Fighting Irish (7-1), still smarting after their 81-63 loss at Michigan State on Thursday. Notre Dame started the second half with 4 of 19 shooting but ended an 11-1 Terrier run when Gibbs hit a 3-pointer with 13:13 left.

There were 32 personal fouls, in the game, 21 by St. Francis Brooklyn (2-6), which got 10 points each from Jalen Jordan, Rasheem Dunn and Darelle Porter.
