Notre Dame beats Canisius in overtime

SOUTH BEND – Playing without its leading scorer, Notre Dame got a career day from Eric Atkins, who scored 30 points to lead the Irish to an 87-81 overtime win Sunday over Canisius.

It has been a rough week for the Irish (9-4), who lost an 8-point lead against No. 3 Ohio State, then senior Jerian Grant to an academic violation, and sophomore reserve Cameron Biedscheid to transfer.

Garrick Sherman converted a three-point play and an offensive putback late in overtime, and Atkins drilled his career-best sixth 3-pointer with 12 seconds to play to seal the Irish win. Sherman finished with 17 points and 10 rebounds.

Billy Baron matched his career high with 33 points to lead Canisius (8-5).
