In front of their seventh sellout crowd of the season, the second-ranked Notre Dame women’s basketball team cruised to a 74-50 win over St. John’s on Sunday afternoon.
The Irish (15-1 overall, 5-0 BIG EAST) have now won 11 straight games and sit atop the conference standings.
Natalie Achonwa notched her tenth double-double of the season and led the way with 16 points and 12 rebounds.
Notre Dame dominated on the glass, finishing the game with a 48-22 rebounding advantage. The Irish defense was also strong, holding the Red Storm to just 35% from the field.
Following a three-game homestand, Notre Dame hits the road this week, taking on Pittsburgh on Wednesday night at 7 pm ET, before returning home on Saturday against Providence at 2 pm ET.
