(SOUTH BEND) - With his team barely shooting 40 percent this season, Mike Brey was wondering when Notre Dame's offense was going to find itself. He didn't have to wait long against visiting Detroit Mercy on Tuesday night. Reserve Dane Goodwin scored a career-high 27 points, T.J. Gibbs had 18 points and eight assists and John Mooney and Prentiss Hubb each had double-doubles as Notre Dame broke a two-game losing streak with a 110-71 victory over beleaguered Detroit Mercy. The Irish (7-3), coming off losses to Maryland and Boston College, had a program-tying 33 assists on their 41 baskets in reaching the century mark for the first time since a 100-74 victory over Jacksonville last season. Prentiss Hubb had a career-high 11 assists to go with 13 points. Mooney, who entered the game leading the nation in rebounding with 13.5 per game, managed 11 to go with his 15 points for his sixth double-double of the year. Juwan Durham had 16 points and nine rebounds as the Irish out-boarded the Titans 40-28. Reserve Nate Laszewski added 14 points for the Irish, who outscored the Titans 45-28 in bench points. Mike Davis' Titans fell to 1-8 with their fifth straight defeat despite 27 points from sophomore son Antoine Davis on 12 of 21 shooting. Brad Calipari had 12 points and Justin Miller and Willy Isiani each added 11 for Detroit Mercy.
