Martin scored 15 points and added 13 rebounds to lead the Fighting Irish (11-6, 3-1 Big East) to their 29th straight home win. Notre Dame's Jack Cooley was the game's leading scorer with 16 points, while Jerian Grant added 14. Augustus Gilchrist scored 13 and Jawanza Poland 12 for the Bulls (9-8, 2-2). Notre Dame shot 48 percent and went 5 for 14 on 3-pointers. South Florida shot 38 percent, including 1 for 13 from beyond the arc. The Irish got off to a 6-0 edge and never trailed despite sloppy play on both sides.
