SOUTH BEND -- Luke Harangody had 31 points and 11 rebounds and No. 13 Notre Dame shot 45 percent against No. 9 Georgetown in a 73-67 victory Monday night that ended a five-game losing streak to the Hoyas.

Harangody, who had never scored more than 13 points in three previous games against Georgetown, scored the final 13 points of the first half to give the Irish an 11-point lead.

The Hoyas closed to 71-67 with 15 seconds left when Chris Wright scored inside, but Kyle McAlarney, who missed the front end of a 1-and-1 14 seconds earlier, made two free throws with 12 seconds left.

Notre Dame (11-3, 2-1 Big East) extended the nation's longest home winning streak to 44 games, including 19 in the conference, one shy of the Big East record set by Pittsburgh in 2004.

Freshman Greg Monroe led Georgetown (10-3, 1-2) with 21 points and 10 rebounds.
