The UC basketball team has now lost three of its last four games after losing Monday night to Notre Dame at Fifth Third Arena.
Both teams entered the nationally televised game with a top 25 ranking, but the Irish out-shot UC from the three-point line to win, 66-60.
UC jumped out to an early nine-point first half lead, but Notre Dame erased that lead even before half.
Sean Kilpatrick led UC with 15 points. Notre Dame hit 9-16 three pointers.
Starting forward Justin Jackson did not play for what Mick Cronin would only call a "coaching decision", but later said those who don't follow his rules of attitude and effort, don't play.
