SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Luke Harangody scored 23 points, four other Notre Dame players scored in double figures and the Fighting Irish shot 60 percent in the second half en route to an 84-73 victory over UCLA on Saturday.

Harangody missed his first four shots, then went 9-of-15 from the floor the rest of the way.

Tim Abromaitis and Ben Hansbrough hit back-to-back 3-pointers early in the second half to spark an 11-3 spurt by the Irish, who went ahead 53-42 on a jumper by Tyrone Nash. The Irish (10-2) later extended the lead to 76-63 when Harangody scored on a fastbreak basket with 2:55 left.

Michael Roll hit a jumper and Malcolm Lee hit a 3-pointer and a layup as the Bruins (3-7) went on a 7-0 run to cut the lead to 76-70 with 65 seconds left. But Harangody scored on a fastbreak dunk and a pair of free throws to quickly restore the lead to 10 points.

Lee finished the game with a game- and career-high 29 points, his second straight game with 20 or more points. Roll had 19 points and made a career-high-tying five three-pointers in a game for the fourth time in his career (second time this season).

Reeves Nelson had 11 points and added eight rebounds, but the Bruins lost the battle of the boards 36-27.
