SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) Scott Martin recorded his second straight double-double to lead Notre Dame to a 60-49 victory over South Florida on Tuesday night.
Martin scored 15 points and added 13 rebounds to lead the Fighting Irish (11-6, 3-1 Big East) to their 29th straight home win.
Notre Dame shot 48 percent and went 5 for 14 on 3-pointers. South Florida shot 38 percent, including 1 for 13 from beyond the arc.
