Back in the Top 25 for the first time in over the year, the Irish (9-1) used a 30-4 first half run to turn a four-point contest into a blowout before halftime.

Notre Dame, the national leader in field goal percentage, shot 59 percent from the field (36-of-61).

Not much would go down in the second half for Mount St. Mary's, which missed two tip-ins and followed with a failed dunk attempt by Byron Ashe on consecutive trips down the floor as the Mountaineers hit just 2 of 12 from the floor to open the second half. Notre Dame's lead ballooned to 34 points in that stretch after a Vasturia 3-pointer and Grant's pull up jumper.

The Irish started the game 5-of-5 and had an 11-point lead less than three minutes in.
