Balanced Irish cruise to road win vs. UCLA

– Notre Dame star Skylar Diggins was nowhere near her best against UCLA. Fortunately for the Fighting Irish, her teammates did more than enough to beat the Bruins.

Freshman Jewell Loyd had 19 points, seven rebounds and five assists, Kayla McBride scored 18 points, and No. 5 Notre Dame wasn’t threatened in the second half in beating the 19th-ranked Bruins 76-64 on Friday.

Diggins had 12 points, six rebounds and five assists, but shot 5 of 17 and committed four turnovers.

Natalie Achonwa had 10 points and 10 rebounds for the Fighting Irish (4-0), who shot 29 of 60 (48.3 percent) to UCLA’s 24 of 61 (39.3 percent).

“I was so pleased with how the game went because we hit adversity early,” Notre Dame coach Muffet McGraw said. “It wasn’t easy, nothing was easy for us today. As ugly as it was, it was great for a young team to come of age.”

No. 14 PURDUE 67, WAKE FOREST 53: In St. Thomas, Virgin Islands, Sam Ostarello had 15 points and 15 rebounds to help the Boilermakers win in the Paradise Jam. Chantel Poston and Courtney Moses each added 11 points for the Boilermakers (5-0), who will face No. 2 UConn today.
