Notre Dame forward Luke Harangody was forced to leave in the second half Thursday night with an injured left knee in the Irish's 90-87 loss to host Seton Hall.
The nation's No. 3 scorer was injured while coming down on a rebound attempt with 8:42 to play. He left the court, was treated and returned briefly before leaving the game again.

"I came down funny and twisted my knee," said Harangody, who collected 13 points and 6 rebounds in 29 minutes. "I felt something wasn't right. At first, I was really worried, but I put ice and pressure on it and it felt a little better. But after a second, it didn't feel right and I came out."
Jeremy Hazell rebounded from one of his worst games of the season to score 35 points to lead Seton Hall (13-9, 4-7 Big East) over the Irish (17-8, 6-6 Big East).
Harangody, who was averaging 24.5 points and 10.1 rebounds, sat at the end of the Notre Dame bench in the final minutes with a towel wrapped around his neck.
"I think we have to see how it feels tomorrow," Harangody said. "The trainers checked it out and they told me that I shouldn't worry about anything. It could be just a sprain. It feels a lot better now."
Notre Dame coach Mike Brey said Harangody just came down wrong.
"At first, I thought it was his ankle, but it was his knee," Brey said. "He tried to give it a go, but he said it was sore. I think we did a heck of a job without him."
Michigan 71, Minnesota 63: DeShawn Sims had 21 of his 27 points for Michigan in the second half, Manny Harris pitched in 20 points to lead the visiting Wolverines (5-7, 12-12 Big Ten) past Minnesota (5-6, 14-9). Michigan, the Big Ten's worst 3-point shooting team, went 7-for-14 from behind the arc and used that confusing, smothering 1-3-1 zone defense to send the Gophers to a costly defeat. Harris added 7 assists for the Wolverines, who committed only 8 turnovers.
E. Illinois 76, Morehead St. 75: Visiting Morehead State (17-8, 11-3 Ohio Valley) called a timeout it didn't have with one second left in the game, and Tyler Laser (16 points) hit a pair of free throws to lift Eastern Illinois (13-11, 7-7) to a wild win.
W. Illinois 64, Oral Roberts 62: Ceola Clark nearly doubled his season average with 25 points to lead visiting Western Illinois (10-14, 3-10 Summit) to a victory over Oral Roberts (14-12, 9-5). Clark, who entered with a 13.4 average, was 10 of 15 from the field for the Leathernecks. His basket with 1:22 left gave them a 64-60 lead.
