SOUTH BEND, Ind.(AP) -- Tory Jackson scored 20 of his 22 points in the second half and Notre Dame held Connecticut to 35 percent shooting, beating the Huskies 58-50 on Wednesday night.

The Fighting Irish, who trailed by as many as 10 twice in the first half, took control with a 23-6 run that started when Carleton Scott, who scored 12, hit a 3-pointer late in the first half to cut the Huskies' lead to 20-17. Jackson capped the spree with a 3-pointer midway through the second half that gave Notre Dame a 37-26 lead.

The Irish (20-10, 9-8 Big East) clinched at least a .500 conference record as they won their third straight, all without injured leading scorer Luke Harangody, to keep alive their hopes for an NCAA tournament berth. Connecticut (17-13, 7-10) is assured of a sub-.500 finish in the conference.
