   FEB. 5: Host Notre Dame came into Friday's contest with a 2-3 ESCC record, but the Dons completely manhandled Marian Catholic in a 56-43 decision.

The Spartans, after going 7-0 in January, shot just 3-for-22 in the opening half and trailed at halftime, 24-8.

 

Brandon Hurt was the lone Spartan in double figures with 10 points, while Steven Ross and Myles Howard each chipped in five points.

 

Howard grabbed five rebounds and Austin Richie four for Marian (17-5, 4-1), while Chase Adams dished out three assists. The Spartans shot a dismal 11-for-20 from the foul line and were outscored from the three-point arc, 15-6.

 

Benet now owns a half-game lead in the ESCC with a 5-1 mark.

 

Marian Basketball legends DON BERG and MIKE GOLDRICK were honored (more info) as part of an Alumni Game celebration and men's basketball competition against Hammond Bishop Noll on Saturday, Jan. 23.
