Providence's Marshon Brooks Scores Big East-Record 52 Points In Loss

Marshon Brooks scored a Big East-record 52 points, but Providence was edged out by No. 9 Notre Dame 94-93 on Wednesday night.

"I'm thrilled that we escaped with a win," Irish coach Mike Brey said. "I don't know if I've ever seen a performance like that by a young man. That was outstanding."

The 52 points was the most ever scored against Notre Dame, which hadn't allowed a 40-point scorer since Danny Manning in 1987.

"It really hasn't hit me yet. When I get home and sit down it will. Fifty-two against Notre Dame is a nice game," Brooks said. "I was feeling it. It was going to be tough to stop me."

Brooks scored 35 points in the second half.
