Scott Martin had a season-high 22 points on a career-high six 3-pointers and Jack Cooley added 19 points and 13 rebounds to lead No. 21 Notre Dame to a 93-74 victory over Seton Hall on Saturday, the 11th straight win for the Irish.

The winning streak is the second-longest for the Irish (13-1, 1-0 Big East) in 13 seasons under coach Mike Brey. The loss ended a seven-game winning streak for Seton Hall (12-3, 1-1).

Seton Hall, playing with only eight scholarship players available because of injuries, kept the game close until the Irish finished the first half on a 7-2 spurt, then opened the second half with a 16-4 run to move ahead 60-41.

Fuquan Edwin and Aaron Cosby had 21 points each for the Pirates and Gene Teague had 17 points and nine rebounds.

Eric Atkins added 17 points and 10 assists for the Irish.
