    PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Mike Rosario scored 24 points and Hamady Ndiaye blocked two shots by Luke Harangody in the final minute as Rutgers ended a nine-game losing streak with a 74-73 victory over Notre Dame on Saturday.

    James Beatty hit three free throws in the final 31.1 seconds as the Scarlet Knights (10-11, 1-8) became the last Big East team to win a game in the conference this season.

    Dane Miller and Jonathan Mitchell added 12 points apiece and Beatty and Ndiaye had 10. Ndiaye had all six of his blocks in the second half.

    Harangody had 19 points on a dreadful 8 of 26 shooting to lead Notre Dame (15-7, 4-5). Ben Hansbrough added 18, including two 3-pointers in the final 3 seconds and Tim Abromaitis had 17 as the Irish lost for the fourth time in five games.
