SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Jerian Grant scored 24 points to lead No. 14 Notre Dame to an 83-76 comeback win in double overtime over Georgia Tech on Saturday.

Pat Connaughton knocked down a 3-pointer just over a minute into the second overtime and added a right-handed scoop 40 seconds later for the Irish. Battling foul trouble most of the game, Zach Auguste's low post bucket with two minutes left put the Irish up by seven.

After not scoring in the first half, Steve Vasturia added 17 points for Notre Dame (14-1, 2-0 ACC), which won its 10th straight. The Irish also matched their previous best start under coach Mike Brey.

Marcus Georges-Hunt scored 20 points to lead the Yellow Jackets (9-4, 0-1) in their ACC opener. Charles Mitchell added 14 points and 12 rebounds.
