Old Dominion edges Notre Dame 51-50

By  | 

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Carleton Scott's 3-pointer rattled out in the
closing seconds, and 11th-seeded Old Dominion delivered the first
upset of the NCAA tournament when it stunned sixth-seeded Notre
Dame 51-50 on Thursday in the South Regional.

The Fighting Irish rushed the ball up the court as the clock
wound down, but Scott's attempt to tie the game didn't fall and
Luke Harangody's putback at the buzzer wasn't enough.

Frank Hassell scored 15 points to lead Old Dominion (27-8),
which held Harangody to only four points - and scoreless until the
final minute.

Ben Hansbrough scored 17 points to lead the Irish (23-12).
