SOUTH BEND, Indiana — Jerian Grant matched a career high with 26 points, including a career-best six 3-point field goals Saturday to pace Notre Dame's 90-42 rout of Chicago State at Purcell Pavilion.

Pat Connaughton added 17 points, and Demetrius Jackson had 11 for the Irish (6-1), who dished out 22 assists on their 31 field goals.

Trayvon Palmer's nine points led Chicago State (2-6), which lost its fourth game in a row. The Irish locked down on Cougars' leading scorer Clarke Rosenberg, who came in averaging 17.3 points per game, but managed just three points on 1 of 6 shooting to go with two turnovers.

After knocking down 12 3-pointers in a win over Grambling State on Wednesday, the Irish shot 14 of 25 from the 3-point arc against the Chicago State. Grant finished 6 of 8 from 3 and also dished out five assists.

Grant scored Notre Dame's final six points of the first half, part of a 12-2 run to open up a 44-22 lead at the break. He had eight of his 14 first half points in the run. The Irish forced turnovers on the final three Chicago State possessions before halftime.
