Pendleton leads Loyola in scoring (15.2) and rebounding (6.2). The Fighting Irish, who defeated Indiana in late November, have won two straight. Junior G Keith Keroski (12.3 ppg) and freshman F Pat Garrity (11.7 ppg) top the list of four Notre Dame players who are averaging in double figures in scoring. This is the second meeting between the schools, the first in 10 years.
