Harangody, who scored 19 points in the first half, started his run with three straight baskets inside, adding a free throw after the last one, then hit a 17-foot baseline jumper, before finishing with four free throws.
The Hoyas made just two of eight shots during the run.
The Hoyas closed to 39-35 early in the second half on a basket by Monroe. But the Irish led by at least five points for most of the second half, extending the lead to 55-46 when Zach Hillesland scored on a tip-in. McAlarney extended the lead to 61-48 when he hit 3s 28 seconds apart.
The Hoyas had several chances to cut the lead to seven points, but couldn't do it as McAlarney blocked a shot by Jason Clark on one possession and Monroe missed two straight shots inside on the next. Harangody then threw down an emphatic two-handed slam dunk with 4:07 left to give the Irish a 65-54 lead.
