Irish's winning streak ends

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Truck Bryant broke out of a slump by scoring 24 points, West Virginia took command early in the second half and beat No. 8 Notre Dame 72-58 on Saturday, ending the Irish’s seven-game winning streak.

Joe Mazzulla added 16 points and Kevin Jones scored 14 for the Mountaineers (17-9, 8-6 Big East), who got a badly needed win against a ranked opponent to prop up their NCAA tournament hopes.

Ben Hansbrough led Notre Dame (21-5, 10-4) with 19 points. Carleton Scott added 11 points and Tyrone Nash scored 10.

West Virginia scored 46 points after halftime after shooting just 29 percent (8 of 28) before the break.
