Notre Dame men get 69-59 win over Georgia Tech
Monday, February 11, 2019

(SOUTH BEND) - Notre Dame coach Mike Brey turned out to be quite prophetic as his Irish and visiting Georgia Tech struggled to find the bottom of the net in the first half of their Atlantic Coast Conference game Sunday night. The Irish overcame a 32.8-percent shooting night thanks to T.J. Gibbs' 20 points, 18 from D.J. Harvey and John Mooney's 15th double-double of the season in a 69-59 victory over Georgia Tech. Coming off a 62-47 loss at Miami last Wednesday, the Irish (13-11, 3-8 ACC) won for only the second time in their last seven behind Gibbs and Harvey, who each hit 5-of-13 shots from the field but contributed elsewhere. Gibbs had five assists and four steals, while Harvey pulled down eight rebounds, five on the offensive boards. Mooney, whose streak of eight consecutive games with a double-doubles was snapped at Miami, finished with 11 points and 14 rebounds. Prentiss Hubb added 13 points for Notre Dame, had five rebounds and three assists. Michael Devoe scored 18 points and Abdoulay Gueye added 12 for the Yellow Jackets (11-13, 3-8) who lost for the fifth straight time since that 63-61 victory over Notre Dame on Jan. 22.
