WASHINGTON (AP) — Dane Goodwin scored 17 points, Nate Laszewski had 17 points and 13 rebounds, and Notre Dame beat Howard 71-68 in the MLK Classic.

Notre Dame led 67-56 before turning it over four times in five possessions, while Howard scored 10 straight. Cormac Ryan ended the Irish’s drought with two free throws with 41.5 seconds left for a three-point lead. Elijah Hawkins converted a layup in traffic to pull Howard within 69-68, but Prentiss Hubb answered at the other end on a driving layup with 12.7 left.

Hawkins had a chance to tie it but his step-back 3-pointer hit the back of the iron as time expired. Steve Settle III, averaging 13.5 points per game, scored a career-high 25 points for the Bison.
