Notre Dame, IN. Holy Cross College men’s basketball team hosted Indiana Tech this evening for their last non-conference game before league play. The Saints were not able to overcome the Warrior’s strong shooting, and fell by a score of 77-68. With the loss, men’s basketball stands at 3-2 on the year.

The Warriors were able to take the lead early, but Holy Cross tied it up 10-10 with 13 minutes left to play in the half. For the next seven minutes, the Saints would go into a shooting slump as Indiana Tech took a 14-26 lead. Late in the first half, a costly turnover by the Saints gave the Warriors a last second layup to go up 27-39 as we entered halftime. Ja’Mare Washington recorded 12 points and seven rebounds in the half.

Poor shooting hurt the Saints in the second half, as the Warriors were able to take a 40-61 lead halfway through the second period. Late in the game, Holy Cross would go on a 14-2 run, but Indiana Tech was able to hold on to their lead.

Holy Cross was led by Ja’Mare Washington‘s 20 points and a team-high 11 rebounds. Fellow seniors Travon Brackett and Brandon Lawler added 13 and 11 points respectfully. The Saints shot 49% from the field and 35% from three, but we out rebounded 21-33.

Men’s basketball will open up their Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference play when they travel to St. Xavier University Wednesday, Nov. 15 for an 8:00 tipoff.
