SOUTH BEND -

Jerian Grant scored 20 points to reach 1,000 for his career in leading Notre Dame to a 101-67 win Sunday over Cornell.

Eric Atkins added 19 points and Pat Connaughton had 18 as all five Irish starters reached double figures.

Nolan Cressler scored 17 points and Robert Hatter had 15 to pace Cornell, which has now lost 15 in a row dating back to last season, one away from tying the school record longest losing streak of 16, set in the 1972-73 season.

The Big Red, which won 29 games and advanced to the Sweet 16 in 2010, is 0-9 for the first time since 1904-05, when it started 0-10.

After starting the game 2-for-10, Notre Dame (5-1) found the range and finished with its highest point total of the season. The Irish broke the 100-point mark for the first time since its 5-overtime upset of Louisville last season.
