No. 2 Notre Dame beats No. 22 Syracuse

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Kayla McBride scored 25 points and Skylar Diggins added 24 points and eight assists as second-ranked Notre Dame overcame a 15-point first-half deficit to beat No. 22 Syracuse 79-68 on Tuesday night, the 21st straight victory for the Fighting Irish.

The Irish (26-1, 14-0 Big East) struggled early, hitting just 2-of-16 shots to start the game as the Orange (22-5, 10-4) jumped to a 22-7 lead. But Diggins scored nine points during a 13-2 run late in the first half to get the Irish back into the game and the Irish took control by opening the second half with a 9-0 run. The Irish cruised from there as they improved to 26-2 all-time against the Orange.

After shooting just 31 percent in the first half and being outrebounded 32-20, the Irish shot 44 percent in the second half and had a 26-13 rebounding edge.
